No: No interactions identified with others in the selection list. Ask your dr about Ritalin (methylphenidate) , Concerta and stratterra . Why you are taking Ritalin (methylphenidate) 3x/day?

Drug interactions: Per the drugs.Com drug interaction checker - use of Ritalin (methylphenidate) can ^ blood levels /effects of Luvox. The fact that there could be an increased risk for Serotonin Syndrome does not mean that it will occur.
