Hi there


Did the same doctor prescribe both medications to you?  Does your doctor have a record of your allergy?


The best person to ask this question is either your doctor or your pharmacist.


In researching your question I see that has stated that there can be an adverse reaction between these drugs.  The worry is serotonin syndrome.


Please discuss your concerns with your doctor.


Thank you for your question.
