"There are no interactions between R. rosea and antidepressants, such as selective serotonin reuptake inhibitors (SRRIs) like Celexa, Lexapro, Prozac, Paxil, and Zoloft or serotonin/norepinephrine reuptake inhibitors (SNRIs) such as Effexor, Cymbalta, Pristiq, Meridia.. In fact, the concomitant use of _R. rosea_and these antidepressants has been reported to have favorable effects in terms of both antidepressant"
