Hi I'm on 5mg of melatonin every night as perscribed and wanting to drink some chamomile tea with licorice root. Would it be safe to do this every night? Also are there any specific herbs other than St. John's wort and kava kava and wired stuff like that that I need to be careful of? I thought if they were standard like chamomile, peppermint, ginseng, lemon, raspberry, cranberry, etc they were relatively safe to use everyday.
Waterstar0610; The tea your talking about is okay to take prior to the Melatonin But no all of these others you have to be very careful with these medications or mumbo jumbo things you get over the counter you must keep a list and let any doctor or pharmacist know what you are taking when they prescribe anything for you.Lots of people think this way but there are a lot of interactions with many so-called health medications that can do serious damage to kidneys liver etc so you must always check and the big one i see is st.johns wart interacts with a lot of things so always tell your doctor or pharmacist if you are taking anything like this or vitamins.
