Are there drug/herb interactions taking 30mg escitalopram, 300 mg modafinil and 400mg rhodiola rosea?
Rhodeola Rosea: I would not recommend the combination, since it has MAO (mono amine oxidase) inhibiting properties, which contraindicates combining it with serotonergic agents such as lexapro, (escitalopram) due to potential for serotonin syndrome.

Is taking Adderall (dextroamphetamine and racemic amphetamine) and rhodiola rosea a safe combination?
It's not clear: Adderall has a complex metabolic pathway, including the liver isoenzyme cyp2d6. Rhodiola rosea is a potent inhibitor of cyp3a4, a different enzyme system. There are no reports of specific interactions between Adderall & rhodiola, but rhodiola has been linked to increased heart rate in patients also taking Lexapro (escitalopram) (metabolized by cyp 3a4 & 2c19). I suggest caution because of incomplete data. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
