Can we use Saffron with an antidepressant?
I am already taking 15 mg of Cipralex and 0,5 mg Rivotril at night.

Dr_Anderson : Greetings, and thank you for your question. As you probably know, Saffron is not only good for use in cooking, but it has also had at least some anecdotal aid in relieivng GI issues, eye problems, and perhaps even helping with depression. In researching the chemical components, I could not find anything in Saffron which directly counteracts or would be problematic with your listed medications. So, for all intents and purposes, yes, it should be safe to use.
Dr_Anderson : Hope this helps! Please let me know if you have any other questions or if I may be of further service.
