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

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. Both the tea and Ativan may make you sleepy so you'll be more sleepy and relaxed if you take the tea and Ativan together than Ativan alone, but it is safe to take both. 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

Someone bought me tea made w/ lavender flowers, lemon balm, & feverfew. Advertised as headache relief tea. Is it safe to use & if so how often?

Safe but: Whether it works or not is another question. As for the dose, there is no scientific study on this especially given that the potency of the active ingredient(s) among different batches of the plants are not known and have not been standardized. Having said that, most people should be able to tolerate up to 4 cups of herbal tea daily as a rule of thumb- again just my personal opinion. ...Read more
