I am on Lexapro and also take Ativan as needed (depression and anxiety likely due to lyme). Are there any herbs in the book/protocol that are not okay with these medications? I plan to try the core protocol and may have to add in other herbs as needed, but haven’t been able to find any information on whether this is okay. I ask because there may be many others who are on anti-depressants/anti-anxiety medications and are afraid to add in all the herbs in case there are interactions of any sort! Thank you!
I have included all the known herb/drug interactions in the book itself. I do not remember any specific contraindications for these drugs but you should review the book and check each herb you are planning on taking and see if there are known interactions. But as I say, I do not remember these as being problematical. Remember, there are other solutions for anxiety that are more natural, and I suggest reading up on the topic.
