Hi,

Interactions between your selected drugs
Major
dextromethorphan sertraline
Applies to: Delsym (dextromethorphan), Zoloft (sertraline)

Talk to your doctor before using dextromethorphan together with sertraline. Combining these medications can increase the risk of a rare but serious condition called the serotonin syndrome, which may include symptoms such as confusion, hallucination, seizure, extreme changes in blood pressure, increased heart rate, fever, excessive sweating, shivering or shaking, blurred vision, muscle spasm or stiffness, tremor, incoordination, stomach cramp, nausea, vomiting, and diarrhea. Severe cases may result in coma and even death. You should contact your doctor immediately if you experience these symptoms while taking the medications. It is important to tell your doctor about all other medications you use, including vitamins and herbs. Do not stop using any medications without first talking to your doctor.

You should avoid or limit the use of alcohol while being treated with sertraline.

Talk to your doctor or pharmacist if you have any questions or concerns.
