This can result in the serotonin syndrome which is dangerous and even potentially fatal. All of these drugs also produce sedation. I would talk with your provider and pharmacist about safety of this. ...Read more

Older ones in the tca class (elavil, anafranil, etc), trazodone and even a more modern one like Remeron (mirtazapine) do so which can lead to increased sleepiness and appetite. As far as potency, they're not as effective as sudafed in fighting a cold. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
