Does Doxepin Interact With Prozac?

I've been prescribed both Doxepin and Prozac and I am asking if this is safe to do so?

Answer

I ran these two medications through the drug interaction checker and it advised caution because it increases the risks of adverse effects, serotonin syndrome and neuroleptic malignant syndrome. If the same doctor prescribed both, he must have had a reason. But if you're concerned, don't hesitate to tell him your concerns and ask him to explain why he feels you should be taking both.
