Both of these drugs: are SSRI's and there is the increased potential for serious side effects. Potential for serotonin syndrome is quite high. Discuss this with your health care provider if it causes you concern. He/She has your whole health and mental health history and is weighing the risks and benefits of this therapy for you.
