Dear customer,

Thank you for the question.

You should avoid this combination since both serotonin levels and can rarely cause a serious condition called the serotonin syndrome. This is a severe interaction and using both these medications together should, therefore, be avoided.

Take care.

Thank you to the Physician who answered my question today. The answer was far more informative than what I got from the Physicians I saw in person for my problem.
