    Is it safe to take chinese herbal medicine with antidepressants?

    I'm now taking 40mg of celexa, 150mg of efexor xr and .5mg of klonopin for my ocd and depression. I'm going to an acupuncturist also and she wants give me a chinese herbal medicine to balance my "yin and yang." She said it's to balance my body and energy. Does anyone know if it's safe to take chinese herbal medicine with antidepressants? I need your help! Thanks

    Vicky

    Vick-

    Sounds like you're on quite a few powerful psychotropic medications. I would definiately check with your doctor before you start throwing other substances into the mix, regardless of if they're "natural" or not. Don't forget that alot of medications we take are synthesized from naturally occuring plants.
