Combo or high dose: Serotonin syndrome is too much serotonin in the brain. If you have tolerated zoloft (sertraline) for a long time, than your chances of developing the syndrome are low, unless your dose was increased or another med added. Other psychotropics, pain meds (e.g. Ultram), migraine meds (triptans), HIV meds, stimulants & hallucinogens w/ zoloft (sertraline) can raise the risk. Inform your doctor of all the meds you're taking.
Unlikely but if you: Experience symptoms of excessive serotonin including nausea, vomiting, diarrhea, agitation, confusion, restlessness, dilated pupils, headache, changes in blood pressure/body temperature, rapid heart rate, tremor, loss of muscle coordination, twitching muscles, shivering, goose bumps, or excessive sweating seek medical review. Best regards for good health.

SAM-e: Can cause serotoneric syndrome if taken with Demerol, (meperidine hydrochloride) Talwin, dextromethorphan (Robitussin), Ultram, Triptans or other antidepressants. It should be taken with Folate, B12 and B6 to avoid elevations of serum homocysteine. It is best taken in the morning on an empty stomach to avoid insomnia. It is not regulated by the FDA. Talk to your doctor about dose-some pill forms have a very short half life.
Is it possible to get serotonin syndrome from taking 400mg of Sam-e by itself, or is it fairly safe?
Probably OK: The Mayo Clinic suggests that higher doses of SAMe can be used (http://www. Mayoclinic. Org/drugs-supplements/same/dosing/hrb-20059935), but each person is an individual; also, it is important not to be taking other agents that could precipitate serotonin syndrome at the same time.
Possible: Depending on the person, it can happen at any dose. Generally, it is less likely the lower the dose.

If you have any: Concerns about side effects, see your MD immediately. This class of meds can produce some very weird and worrisome and potentially dangerous side effects, and sooner than you think.
Unlikely: Serotonin syndrome is very rare already. At this dose, it is unlikely. However, it is possible. It also depends on what else you are taking; if you are taking migraine medications, other psychiatric medications, or pain medications (like tramadol), you are more likely to get it. If you think you have it, stop the zoloft (sertraline) and ask the doctor who prescribed it.
I may have taken twice my 200mg dosage of Zoloft (sertraline). When would I be able to tell? Would I get serotonin syndrome? What should I do?
If you get: Serotonergic syndrome from an extra dose of Zoloft (sertraline) the symptoms would likely be mild and short lived. Get a multi day pill box to avoid this issue in the future. If your pulse is less than 120 your fine. If you are not sure how to take your pulse look it up. (Its a good thing to know) If you have an elevated temperature and are sweating a lot or have confusion have someone take you to the ER.
