Am i going to die? I drank green tea and feel brain burning . I also have anxiety and i feel like chemicals are draining or something

If necessary go to an ER or urgent care for reassurance. Start CBT therapy for anxiety mgmt. Best! ...Read more

Dopamine and serotonin are raised by l-theanine found in green tea. Safe to drink that as well as take sertraline 200mg or cause serotonin syndrome?

Theanine in supplement form has increased synthesis of neurotransmitters (including serotonin) in rats, but these findings don't automatically transfer to humans. If only drinking the tea (not taking the supplement) you're probably fine. ...Read more
