Can inositol and choline interact with benzodiazepines, due to their effects on GABA receptor sites?
Benzodiazepines have wrecked my mind and body, and how they function. Plus, they are almost impossible to get off of!
Thanks for your question. The Natural Medicines database does not indicate an interaction between inositol or choline and benzodiazepines. Both of these supplements are common in the diet, which suggests that they are well tolerated with benzodiazepines given the lack of reported side effects. I hope that helps!
Hello and thanks in advance for your help. I currently take Ritalin depression and for Adult ADHD. It’s incredibly helpful for both of these things and takes a lot of my terrible, more generalized anxiety away. However, it gives a lot of anxiety back in return and I have to take Ativan to blunt it. I hate taking benzos. Do you think it reasonable to take the Ritalin along with Choline/Inositol supplement at about 1500 mg a day? How about adding Aniracetam to that?
I have read inositol feeds candida?
Do you know of any interactions between mayo-insolitol and CBD (anxiety treatment)?

Can inositol be taken with vitamins A-Z?
Can you use 4g Inositiol with Berberine? Or will that lower blood sugar too much?
It would be important to check with a doctor to determine whether this supplement combination is appropriate for you! There is no research available that examines the effects of combining inositol with berberine at present.
