Can i drink yogi honey lavender stress relief tea that contains chamomile,lemon balm ,and lavender with 1mg of ativan tonight?

Yes: That tea will have benefits in terms of helping you to relax, and, of course, the Ativan will also help you to relax.

But maybe if you take the tea you could get by with 0.5 mg of Ativan. The tea is healthier for you than Ativan. ...Read more

Zoloft, (sertraline) No tea: Each agent, Zoloft, (sertraline) chamomile and lavender seek to achieve the same effect - decrease of anxiety and/or encouragement of sleep.

Any ideas for natural supplements to help with anxiety? Already use chamomile, considering l-theonine. Trying to reduce my ativan (lorazepam) usage.

Complex anxiety: From your additional information, your anxiety is complex. Anorexia nervosa, chronic pain, and adhd all need specialized treatment. I suggest working with your psychiatrist & staying in psychotherapy. L-theanine is effective in some, but magnesium might be better for you (taurate or glycinate would be best absorbed).

Great idea!: Yes, it should be totally safe - with the only possible problem being an unusual allergy to the pollen in the honey if it is made from that pollen (rare - don't worry!) Chamomile is known to be relaxing, calming and great for complexions. It sounds delightful and I hope it works well for you. Experiment with other herbal teas too and try the addition of a bit of milk or a squeeze of fresh lemon. ...Read more

They will also probably not be as potent in their effects as your psychotropic meds. If you're hypothyroid, why are you on synthroid?

See below.: It's great you decided to try less addictive ways to reduce your anxiety. Chamomile is probably the safest tea to help you relax. You may want to drink less if you take aspirin or another blood thinner with it. Valerian is helpful for sleep and anxiety, but it may cause insomnia, upset stomach and irregular heart beat in some people. Kava has been linked with a few reports of liver disease. ...Read more

Regardless, please follow closely with your doctor. ...Read more
