I was taking Effexor 75 mg and my doctor added Celexa 20 mg to that. I'm concerned because of serotonin syndrome but she says she uses this combo often. I have depression, anxiety/GAD and OCD. Thanks in advance.
Has anyone ever been prescribed an SSRI (Celexa) and an SNRI (Effexor) at the same time?

I have not but I do know that bipolar people (such as myself) are often on as many as 5 meds at a time with at least 2 being seratonin meds. I go to support groups and that's what they tell me. I understand your concern though. Just be aware of any side effects you have and call ur doctor or go to the ER at your first concern.
