Hi,

Welcome to icliniq.com.

I have read your concerns.

Green tea extract has very good antioxidant properties. Its antioxidant properties equalthat of vitamins A and E. So, you can take it along with your antipsychotic medications. There are no interactions with the drugs you are taking.

However, do not have more than three cups of green tea extract per day. Adverse effects may occur when taken in high doses.
