Is it safe to consume GABA tea whilst taking 20mg Paroxetine daily
I currently take 20mg Paroxetine daily. Is it safe for me to drink 1-2 cups of GABA tea each day?

It should be fine.  Paxil targets serotonin receptors, not GABA.  While GABA as a supplement doesn't generally work because it doesn't cross the blood/brain barrier, this tea supposedly increases the natural GABA found in tea so maybe it does cross.  Now, if you're on a benzo, you might want to think about it, since benzos target GABA, but even then it would probably be alright since this is theoretically a food source.  I say theoretically because who knows if this process really works and if it does work whether the GABA truly gets absorbed very well?
