Can I take Picamilon with a SSRI, specifically Zoloft? its not an MAOI but I don’t know what the difference is exactly
Theoretically it would be fine. The question is whether you want to be taking a second mood regulating drug without your doctor’s supervision. American doctors do not prescribe this, and are most likely unfamiliar, and most likely quite suspicious of a supplement not FDA approved. There are many reasons not to take SSRIs, they suffer “poop-out” syndrome, and withdrawal symptoms after discontinuing. It would seem wiser to wait until you stop taking SSRIs.
