Hi--before I answer can you tell me exactly why you think the drops would cause serotonin syndrome?
Customer: replied 4 years ago.

beacuse my doctor tell me to be very careful as some meds dont go with aropax and also how will i feel after i have had the drops!

Expert:  Dr. Chip replied 4 years ago.
OK. You have absolutely nothing to worry about with this, Theresa. The drops are called pilocarpine and they act on the parasympathetic nerves just in your eyes so the pupils will dilate for a couple of hours. But there is absolutely no interaction between these drops and the aropax and there's absolutely no danger of serotonin syndrome here.

what will happen when he gives them to me ad will i get blured virson or things like that

Expert:  Dr. Chip replied 4 years ago.
You won't get blurry vision but bright light will hurt your eyes so you'll need to wear sunglasses when going outside for the first couple of hours. There really is nothing to worry about here--I've had the drops given to me before and it's nothing really too bothersome
