Mental Health Home > Drug Interactions With Gamma-Aminobutyric Acid

Gamma-aminobutyric acid (GABA) does not have any known drug interactions. However, you should always tell your healthcare provider about any other medications or supplements you are taking, including prescription drugs, nonprescription drugs, vitamins, and dietary or herbal supplements. Even though there are currently no known interactions, it is important to understand that gamma-aminobutyric acid supplementation has been studied very little in humans. It has certainly not been studied enough to rule out the possibility of interactions.
If you suspect a drug interaction between gamma-aminobutyric acid and a medication you are taking, let your healthcare provider know. He or she can help you investigate this possibility. If your healthcare provider also suspects that an interaction has occurred, he or she might want to report it to a medical journal, especially if it is a significant or particularly interesting interaction.
