Expert Opinion Needed.

i started growing herbs for fun for myself and my family, but when my son's kindergarden teacher mentioned she couldnt sleep i gave her chamomile and lemon balm leafs and she said they work wonders, for the first time she slept through a night, but she also takes sleeping pills her doc prescribed, she could only get 4 hours out of those, but should she take them both at the same time? i looked in my books and the net but can't find anything about it being bad for you, should i be worried ?

They say to check with your doctor, but my doc has no idea what i'm talking about when i do, LOL.

Chamomile & Meds

Hi Lynn,

Thank you for your confidence in me..but please believe me...I'm not an expert on anything, just a grandma.

I do understand how you would be concerned, although, like you, I can't see how a cup of herbal tea can hurt anybody. But, with her taking medication to sleep it's hard to know what does mix with the meds. Again, I understand what you mean about asking the doctor. Maybe you could ask her to check the literature she got with the medication or ask her pharmacist. It never hurts to use some caution when mixing herbs and meds.
