I've been on Zoloft for a very long time for depression. Currently taking 100mg. I started taking Azilect three weeks ago at .5mg for the first 10 days and 1 mg since. When my Neuro prescribed Azilect and said it was a Mao-b inhibitor I reminded him I'm on Zoloft and he said not to worry that there really isn't any interactions with these new Mao-b inhibitors not like it was with the old Maoi's even though there are all sorts of warnings on the product. He said the FDA insisted on the warnings but there is really no science to back it up. In fact he put a note on my prescription for the pharmacist. I read on the internet that their could be very bad consequences taking these two together. Well I was just fine on the .5mg Azilect but once I bumped up to 1mg I've been having a really bad time of it. So very weak all I can do is just lay there and so very nauseous even though I'm not throwing up. I keep telling myself it's a coincidence but if it keeps up I'm going to have to do something about this.
What I would like to know is this....is anyone else taking an SSRI with and MAO-b? I don't know whether to trust my Neuro or not. I truly want to keep taking the Azilect because along with the sinemet my PD symptoms are totally suppressed and Azilect is known to slow down PD, I also know that I'm miserable without my Zoloft.
