I know about the warning for taking triptans and SSRIs. Is it safe to take a triptan when you are also taking neurotransmitter supplements like gaba, dl- phenylalanine, l glutamine, and 5 htp? I recently started taking lower doses of these and my doctor was not helpful.
I have 3 (I think) meds that are linked to serotonin syndrome (which my doctors have never mentioned to be but I read about the meds I take). I’m on imitrex (100mg pill or nasal spray), citalopram (40mg – which is the max dose), amtriplyine (35mg and might go up). I use to be on cymbalta before citalopram. Plus my tramadol ER 200mg and candersteron (no idea why we are trying that one …. I haven’t had any problems at all with reactions. When I researched it there was only a super tiny risk .. if I remember right it was because they both response to different serotonin receptors.
Still watch closely for shaking, diarrhea, racing heart, and sweats though.
