Tenho uma dúvida: Olá, faço um tratamento com o antidepressivo oxalato de escitalopram de 10 mg uma vez ao dia na parte da noite, e rivotril de 0,5 mg três vezes ao dia. Gostaria de saber se existe algum problema em tomar o tribulus terrestris. Pois nas contra-indicações de alguns tribulus terrestris é citado: uso de antidepressivos(ISRS).
