Patient :I'm a 20 year old female, and I've recently been taking various cough/cold/allergy medicines in order to combat the stuffy nose and dry cough I have left. I just found out about the dextromethorphan and SSRI drug interaction. I take 125 mg of sertraline a day. Should I stop taking things with dextromethorphan in them? I want to quiet or get rid of this cough as soon as possible!
