Question: Antidepressants and Sibutramine Hydrochloride

I would like to know if its dangerous to use serotonin reuptake inhibitors and sibutramine hydrochloride at the same time?

User avatar It is my understanding that these two should not be combined. You could check with your pharmacist for sure but I believe they both work on seratonin so should not be used simultaneously.
