I would like to take valerian for a general boost to help with anxiety and low mood but I know that alcohol and valerian can interact and I will want to have a glass of champagne at an event I have next week. How long after the last dose of valerian is it safe to have a drink?
In my case, I have not started valerian yet and would ideally start taking valerian daily from today (Saturday). The event is next Friday.
As long as you do not take Valerian on the day that you will be drinking you should be fine.
Take care and all the best.

I would not start the Valerian until after your event. It’s typically used for sleeping... and known for people becoming quickly tolerant to it. I guess I’m saying I would not take the risk unless you are familiar with Valerian and it’s effects on you.
