Took valerian root tea by mistake and am on antidepressant and muscle relaxant
Patient : I just accidentally drank a cup of tea, not realizing it had valerian root in it (I usually drink chamomile or a "sleepytime" like tea). I have bipolar disorder and also have been in 2 car accidents. So I am on antidepressants, pain medication, and a muscle relaxant. I began to feel really drowsy and found it difficult to breathe. I began to drink water to help dilute it from my system. Breathing is easier now I'm tired, but not drastically like I had been - almost passed out so tired. I won't be taking it again. If I'm able to breathe again, is it safe to go to sleep?
