That's very interesting ... so I suppose you have to be vigilant about symptoms of serotonin syndrome. Also make people around you (at home and at work) aware that if you do show any signs of the particular symptoms of serotonin syndrome that you need to be taken to a doctor.

Symptoms of the serotonin syndrome may include mental status changes such as irritability, altered consciousness, confusion, hallucinations, and coma; autonomic dysfunction such as tachycardia, hyperthermia, diaphoresis, shivering, blood pressure lability, and mydriasis; neuromuscular abnormalities such as hyperreflexia, myoclonus, tremor, rigidity, and ataxia; and gastrointestinal symptoms such as abdominal cramping, nausea, vomiting, and diarrhea.

Thx daniel for your support I talked to my pharmacist today and he told me the risk of seritonin syndrome is a rare risk but also increased sedation so I'm gonna talk to my dr too. I hate starting new drugs it makes me more anxious!
