3] receptor antagonists alone but particularly with concomitant use of serotonergic drugs
For example, the combination of serotonergic drugs
with MDMA may potentially place users at risk for serotonin syndrome (Oesterheld et al.
Triptans, which are 5-hydroxytryptamine receptor agonists used to treat migraine; and SSRIs and SNRIs, used to treat depression and other mood disorders, are serotonergic drugs
Similar effects were not noted for cholinergic and serotonergic drugs
It would seem essential that the large number of novel serotonergic drugs
currently under investigation be examined for treatment in Alzheimer-type dementia," Cross says.
If concomitant use of PRISTIQ with other serotonergic drugs
is clinically warranted, patients should be made aware of a potential increased risk for serotonin syndrome, particularly during treatment initiation and dose increase.
The switch, however, should not be too abrupt: A schedule that phases in the second drug while slowly tapering off the first will minimize the possibility of the discontinuation syndrome that can occur when serotonergic drugs

VIIBRYD must not be used concomitantly in patients taking MAOIs or in patients who have taken MAOIs within the preceding 14 days due to the risk of serious, sometimes fatal, drug interactions with serotonergic drugs
Serotonin syndrome has been reported with the use of 5-HT3 receptor antagonists either alone or in combination with other serotonergic drugs
, including selective serotonin reuptake inhibitors (SSRIs) and serotonin noradrenaline reuptake inhibitors (SNRIs).
The serotonergic drugs
clomipramine and any of the selective serotonin reuptake inhibitors (SSRIs) are first-line treatments for OCD, but only half of patients respond to a single trial, even when response criteria require only a 35% symptom reduction, rather than recovery or remission.
