Our Members Asked:
Rhodiola and ashwagandha are both promoted to help with stress and anxiety. Is it safe to take them at the same time?
Answer:Although we're not aware of a clinical study of their combined effects, rhodiola can cause dizziness and ashwagandha can be sedating -- and both may lower blood pressure, so it may be best not to take them together.
In general, it is best to first use herbal supplements separately to assess the benefits and potential side effects you experience with each.
