Hello, I've recently acquired a prescription for Buspar from my primary physician. I'd like to give it a try for my anxiety, but I'd also like to continue using Bacopa Monnieri for both anxiety and memory problems considering I have had a lot of success with it.
My question relates to interactions between these two and I can't find any answers anywhere. I've read that they both interact with serotonin, but I'm not sure how to feel about safety. It seems there's a risk with Serotonin Syndrome with some drugs and according to this site's interaction checker, SSRIs + Buspar increase the risk for Serotonin Syndrome significantly. Although, doctors generally prescribe them together.
My main question is: Is it safe to combine 500mg of Bacopa Monnieri a day with Buspar three times a day?
Answers are greatly appreciated!
