Customer Question

My niece is on prosac, birth control, and they want to give her buspirone. My research online has shown these can have dangerous interactions. Should we get second opinions.

I don't think there are any dangerous interaction with birth control pills.

Combining Prozac and buspirone can rarely cause a condition called sierotonin syndrome, but it's quite rare, and most doctors have never seen it.

I'm not sure a second opinion will be very helpful. If you wish to take not risks, then taking no medications is necessary.

Perhaps a second opinion will help to relieve your anxiety.
