Question: Fluoxetine/passion flower mix
|silhoutette - Tue Jun 12, 2007 12:20 pm||
Would it be dangerous to take a small amount of passion flower (not frequently) when on fluoxetine, seeing as one is a SSRI and the other is a MAOI...?

I am not familiar with the passion flower supplement; however, based on your question about SSRI's and MAOI's I presume that it is the MAOI.
Mixing SSRI's and MAOI's can be very dangerous. Using these medicines together can produce deadly effects.
