Is bacopa monnieri safe to take with an ssri?

Bacopa monnieri. Bacopa has been studied in healthy men and women, and found to help verbal learning, memory, information processing, and retention. These studies only went for 12 weeks, though. It may have some cholinergic effects similar to medications used to treat alzheimer's dementia. There are no known interactions with ssri's, but could be with cholinergic drugs & anticholinesterase inhibitors.
No known interaction. There are no double blind studies to show that bacopa munieri works. It is an ayurvedic medication known in india for treatment of epilepsy and asthma. Later studies have shown it reverses benzodiazepine effects that can potentially cause anxiety. I would keep away from it but talk to your physician first.
