This is an awkward scenario.
Zyvox (linezolid) is an antibiotic that fights bacteria in the body.
Linezolid inhibits the enzyme monoamine oxidase. Because of this linezolid has the potential for interaction with adrenergic and serotonergic agents, including most antidepressants, causing serious side-effects (eg serotonin syndrome).
Zyvox should not be given together with serotonin re-uptake inhibitors (SSRI's) and tricyclic antidepressants and other miscellaneous antidepressants.
