Can Valerian and Fluvoxamine be used together?

Published: May 9, 2013

I have ordered your recommended natural sleep remedy “ Revitalizing Sleep Formula” and I also take 100mg of Fluvoxamine per day. I found a PDR on-line that lists the interaction as a Moderate but not Major with possible side effects. Can you tell me if taking around 400mg (2 capsules) of the valerian in the formula is a significant problem ? I thank you for your help.


I have no problem combining these in my patients
