Dear Ask The Doctor: I am currently on an SSRI - Fluvoxamine. I was on 200mg but as it was not helping with my problems I am changing to another one - Sertraline. I have been decreasing fluvoxamine and am now on 50mg. Today I am meant to be starting 50mg of Sertraline at the same
time. My phyciatrist wants me to continue 50mg of fluvoxamine for another 5 days whilst bringing in the Sertraline. I am abit concerned about taking these 2 at the same time
as I have read about serotonin syndrome. However If my phyciatrist has advised me to do this I am assuming it is safe, but would like some advice.
