Is it safe to to take my 1mg script of clonazepam while also taking a GNC brain health supplement? It's called GNC brain health formula
Hello, this is Dr K.. Answers are not medical advice and do not constitute a doctor/patient relationship. I look forward to helping you today.
GNC brain supplement has many ingredients including vitamins,amino acids, and herbals.
Benzodiazepines interact with many herbals including hops, passion flower, kava, and valerian.
Other herbs that may cause problems when combined with benzodiazepines include ashwagandha ( Withania somnifera ) , calendula ( Calendula officinalis ) , catnip ( Nepeta cataria ) , hops ( Humulus lupulus ) , lady's slipper ( Cypripedium ), lemon balm ( Melissa officinalis ), sassafras ( Sassafras officinale ), skullcap ( Scutellaria lateriflora ), and yerba mansa ( Anemopsis californica)
They all have sedative effects. The brain supplement contains ashwagandha so its best avoided. Hope this helps.
