Thank you. Although there are no studies to document any drug interaction.
The ingredients of Maca are:
"Carbohydrates
Amino acids - aspartic acid, glutamic acid, serine, glycine, arginine, valine, phenylalanine, tyrosine, threonine.
Fiber
Lipids - Fatty Acids, linoleic acid, palmitic acid, oleic acid and sterols"

These are things found in many foods you eat, so I don't see the that fluoxetine would interact with this.
