Hello. I'm Dr. Phil, licensed and practicing Internal Medicine Physician. Excellent service is my goal.
Thanks for this question
The answer is no and you are smart to ask. There is an interaction. Paroxetine increases the level of bystolic in the blood
I would switch one or the other. It will be tough to find the right mix. I checked many different drugs and they all interact
You CAN technically take them together as long as your doctor watches your blood pressure and heart rate
