Is it safe to take Brain Calm while on Lexapro and Xanax?
It is always good to check on potential interactions between medications and supplements. I actually give CALM Natural Mind to my patients coming off those medications: Lexapro, which acts primarily on the serotonin system (provided naturally by 5 HTP and B vitamins) and Xanax, which affects the GABA or calming system. This supplement provides a natural calm by raising GABA levels. My only consideration here is to take the supplement at least 2 hours away from the medications. For more information on coming off these medications, see The Addicted Brain and How to Break Free. And check with your own doctor.
