I do NOT mean to be confrontational in any way and I have tremendous respect for Chinese medicine, so I AM very interested to know why you suggest this poster not drink warm milk with clonazepam.
Well, it's not me anybody is talking to, but in Chinese medicine milk just isn't used much at all. Dairy isn't considered food for adult mammals in any form of natural medicine, particularly cow's milk. It presents so many intolerance and allergy problems that can create anxiety and other problems, so generally when you see any practitioner of natural medicine they will advise against dairy and wheat just as a first step. They might okay fermented dairy, but even then would advise goat or sheeps milk, never cow's milk (or eating beef much, for that matter). Some ethnic groups do have the enzyme that allows the digestion of dairy, but most people don't, so this is just a good first place to start and see if it helps. The purpose of the milk is the tryptophan, which is also high in turkey and some other foods, but then you have all the possible digestive and other potential problems to consider. But it has nothing to do with the clonazepam, which targets GABA, while tryptophan is involved with serotonin production, so it's not that.
