Frequently asked questions

  • Anxious moods are not fundamentally life-threatening, which means they do not necessarily have to be treated. However, it has been demonstrated that many people who do not seek help can experience other emotional problems. Treatment is thus strongly recommended.

  • Do not use Lasea® if you are hypersensitive or allergic to lavender oil or any of the other components of this drug.

  • There are no clinical data about taking lavender oil during pregnancy or lactation. Lasea® should thus not be taken during either of these periods.

  • Lasea® contains a special lavender oil which, as is typical for herbal medications, consists of many separate phytochemicals which mutually enhance each other's effects. The two natural substances linalool and linalyl acetate are particularly important here. It has been shown that Lasea® brings equilibrium to important neurotransmitters and this counteracts the hyperstimulation of nerve cells.

  • Unless otherwise directed by your physician, the standard dose is one soft capsule per day. The soft capsules are swallowed whole with plenty of liquid (preferably with a glass of uncarbonated water at mealtime). Do not take Lasea® while lying down.

  • One Lasea® soft capsule is taken once a day.

  • Interactions with other drugs have not been reported.

  • There are no fundamental reasons why Lasea® cannot be taken on a long-term basis. Lasea® is well-tolerated, and even if taken for extended periods, there is no risk of addiction, and the effect does not taper off.

  • No. Lasea® does not have any addictive potential.

  • Lasea® contains a special kind of lavender oil which fulfils the strict standards for producing lavender oils defined in the European Pharmacopoeia. The manufacturing process guarantees that the content of two important components, linalool and linalyl acetate, is guaranteed to have the same high quality from capsule to capsule.

  • Yes. As an approved herbal drug, Lasea® had to undergo extensive clinical studies to prove its efficacy and tolerability.
