Am I to understand you're taking six drugs that conflict? Says who? If the Dr prescribed these I would hope he/she knows what they're doing. I was on a similar cocktail and I'll tell you the Cymbalta had to go, major weight gain and it really did a number on my head; confusion depression and flat out weirdness. If these are all prescribed, and if they are all prescribed by the same Dr I would either bring it up with him/her or find another Dr.
If they're being prescribed by more than one Dr, or if some are not prescribed this is an entirely different concern. Hope this helps.
Talk to you doctor who prescribed the meds. For true SS first thing is discontinuing the offending med anr supportive care (fluids and benzos) sometimes periactin can hault SS but not always. Why do you think it is SS? Fever, insomnia, racing heart (tachycardia), increased BP , severe anxiety, ataxia, hallucinations and seizures can be just a few symptoms, also huge pupils and complete lack of appetite. SS is VERY distressing and can easily land you in the ICU or worse if not acted upon immediately. So call your doc or like suggested above, head to the ED.
If you think you are having symptoms of SSRI Syndrome then you should seek medical attention immediately. Looking at your list of medicines, you are on a lot of pain control type medications. I think your providers should be aware because if all of these are taken at the same time even as directed, your cardiovascular as well as your neurological system could be at some type of risk. I'm curious if one provider prescribed all of these. Hope you feel better.
