Are herbal remedies safe and effective? I wanted to try passion flower or valerian root for anxiety. I have never tried herbal remedies but thought they might be worth a try. I don't want to go on expensive, strong medication for anxiety.

Hello,: Hello, dr. San pedro ferraz already commented on valerian root. So I will address your question regarding passion flower. Passion flower is also known at passiflora incarnata. Passion flower extract is used as flavoring in foods and drinks. It was previously classified as an over-the-counter medication but was taken off the market in this country because of a lack of studies to demonstrate safety and benefits. Chemicals in the passion flower plant can help with insomnia and are calming. It can be used in tea or an extract. Side effects are not common but include thinking sluggishly, feeling tired, fast heart beat, nausea and vomiting. It should not be used in pregnancy or if breast feeding. If sedated, do not drive or use dangerous machinery. ...Read more

No known interaction: There has not been a lot of research on the interactions of most herbs with drugs, but to the best of my knowledge there is no evidence of the herbs you mention interfering with ampicillin.
