Hi there,


Welcome to Just answer !


Well, the answer is YES , it is safe to take lithium and rhodeola rosea together , there are no harmful interactions documented between them ..


The only drugs which react with rhodeola rosea are benzodiazepines like lorazepam and clonazepam , etc , SSRI anti depressants like fluoxetine , sertraline , paroxetine , etc..and SNRI anti depressants like venlafaxine and duloxetine , all of these causing drowsiness when used along with rhodiola rosea..


I hope this helps..


Wish you all the best..
