Question: Hello, I take 1.5 mg of vraylar in the morning for schizoaffective disorder, 100 mg luvox once a day for OCD, 150 mg wellbutrin xl once a day for depression, 5 mg propranolol twice a day for tachycardia, 150 mg of trileptal in the morning and 300 mg at night for mood stabilization, and 0.5 mg klonopin in the morning and 1 mg klonopin at night for anxiety. I took a mood boosting probiotic with 30 billion CFU with b. Infantis, b. Longum, b. Lactis, l. Brevis, l. Plantarum, l. Acidophilus, b. Animalis, l. Helveticus, l. Rhamnosus, and 231 mg of the prebiotic GOS. I felt like my heart was beating weaker and had some palpitations. I took an ekg throughout the day at home and most of the time it was normal but in the middle of the night I had some abnormal beats. Do you think it is safe to continue this probiotic and if not what natural supplement for depression and anxiety do you think is safe to use with my psychiatric medications?

Detailed Answer:
Dear Soniya,
Thanks for using healthcaremagic.

I read your query and understand your concerns.


First of all I like to inform you that few abnormal beats that too during middle of night is completely normal and there is nothing to worry about it. During different phases of sleep heart responds differently and there might be bradycardia and few abnormal beats during N-REM stage of sleep.

I must assure you that the probiotic which you are taking have no abnormal effects on your heart health and considered safe as per the available data.

Regarding natural supplement for anxiety and depression I feel S adenosyl methionine which is normal metabolite in our body will be safer option as it have proven role in depression as well as anxiety.

I hope this helps you.
Feel free to write back to me if you have more questions.
Thanks and regards.
