Does GABA or Tryptophan interact with Lithium?

Posted on Thu, 19 Jul 2018
Question: Hello, I take 600mg of lithium daily and am currently slowly coming off Remeron which is OK with my psychiatrist as I have had horrendous side effects. I am wondering if it would be safe to take GABA or Tryptophan with these. I'm feeling a little anxious. Thank you for your help.
