Can you take vitamin supplements with antidepressants?

If you are taking prescribed medication for low mood or anxiety you need to pay extra attention to the "Cautions & Warnings" section of your natural product label. 

 

Just because a product is "natural" doesn't mean you have a free pass to mix and match prescriptions with supplements. In some cases, their effects are similar and one can have a potentiating effect on the other. 

 

That means you can end up with a double-whammy effect and sometimes, you can have too much of a good thing. 

 

All natural health products manufactured in Canada for Canadian distribution have gone through a review process by Health Canada. This process identifies any potential contraindications and notes them on the label. 

 

If you are unsure about whether or not you can combine supplements with your medication, please use us a resource. We're happy to help you de-code product labels and ensure you are getting the best possible outcomes from both your prescriptions and your supplements.
