Im so confused right now im prescribed prozac 10mg for panic attacks and percocet 5mg for a herniation in my L2 disc in spine. Im planning on starting the prozac tomar do to my panic attacks getting so bad lately. A behavioral health doctor put me on the prozac and says that the two are not a good combo due too serotonin syndrome risk, I asked my doc who prescribed me percocet and he said this is fine i have nothing to worry about. So then getting two different answers from 2 doctors i went to the pharmasist with my question and she said this combo was fine too. But since the first doc told me that they could cause serotonin syndrome Im freaking out about that. I hate gettin different answers from different docs. Whats my risk of this??? Please help!
After having checked it on the Interactions Checker, some moderate reactions were found, please read it on: https://www.drugs.com/interactions-check.php?drug_list=72-1135,1115-648
Take care, be well & safe, please.
While there is some risk of serotonin syndrome with some opiates such as tramadol, there is no risk with the oxycodone in the percocet. Serotonin syndrome is very rare and you would have to be on a much higher dose of meds to even worry about it. I would trust you doctor that prescribed. I have taken many a percocet with my antidepressant and have never had any trouble.
