One of the most significant advantages of Silexan is that it doesn’t carry addictive properties or the potential to be abused, like benzodiazepines that are often used to treat anxiety. Silexan may also carry a lower risk of other side effects compared to antidepressants like SSRIs.
However, there are still some side effects that you should be aware of.
One of the most common side effects is what is called “lavender burps;” if you burp shortly after taking Silexan, it may taste like lavender. Other side effects include a mild upset stomach or nausea.
So far, there have been no reports of serious or severe side effects from using Silexan.
Silexan and other supplements for depression are not a substitute for psychiatric diagnosis and treatment. Although supplements may not require a prescription, certain supplements are more safely used under the guidance of a physician.
Supplements are not regulated by the FDA like medications, so you should only purchase supplements from brands that have been evaluated for quality. Supplements are not FDA-approved to treat depression.
