I take Zoloft and I'm drinking tea that contains Valerian root. I drink it at night and take my Zoloft in the morning and haven't had any problems yet.
I wouldn't take the chance, potential for dizziness, respiratory depression, etc.
Hello noranoranora..I researched and into your inquiry, I have no evidence either positive or negative. Regards pledge
