Hi there,

I am online and will be happy to answer your questions.

I am sorry to hear about your problem.

this is not advisable to mix two of these together, as it can rarely cause dangerous side effect and result in a symptom complex called serotonin syndrome. which may include symptoms such as confusion, hallucination, seizure, extreme changes in blood pressure, increased heart rate, fever, excessive sweating, shivering or shaking, blurred vision, muscle spasm or stiffness, tremor, incoordination, stomach cramp, nausea, vomiting, and diarrhea.

i would recommend to not take two of them together and consult your doctor if you develop one of these symptoms.

thanks
