Brief Answer:
No concerns related to this. It is safe!

Detailed Answer:
Hi,

I have reviewed your information fully. Theanine is attributed the GRAS status(Generally regarded as safe) by the FDA and there are no reported or documented drug interactions with other medications. It is safe to take alongside lexapro and GaBA. There is no need to nurse any fears related to this.

I hope this helps and addresses your query fully. Feel free to follow up with me if need be.
