Care needs to be taken when triptans (eg Sumatriptan) and selective serotonin reuptake inhibitors (SSRIs eg sertraline) are taken together.
There is a risk of developing Serotonin syndrome. Serotonin syndrome is a potentially life-threatening drug reaction that causes the body to have too much serotonin, a chemical produced by nerve cells.
There is also possible potentiation of side-effects with sertraline and lomotrigine which could result in decreased mental alertness, drowsiness and breathing difficulties.
If these drugs are given together it must be under careful supervision.
