There any interaction between Zoloft (sertraline) 50mg and Risperdal 0.25 and remeron 15mg?? And can bi combine together?
Discuss w/ provider: Hopefully the same doctor prescribed these or they consulted if it was not.

So, make sure this is the best treatment plan available to you since it needs close monitoring. They all interact w/ each other in a non-major way that can increase dizzy, drowsy, confused effects so be careful w/ what you do. ...Read more

Can I take valerian root at night before bed while taking 25mg Zoloft (sertraline) daily? Is it safe? Or are there interactions?
Be careful: As you say you'd be taking the Valerian at bedtime, the fact that the combo can cause drowsiness, inability to concentrate and dizziness may not be too disturbing - but it can also increase a risk of respiratory depression - so if you have any breathing issues I'd avoid it and if you feel even a bit of such problems cease use immediately. I'd try warm milk or a boring book instead. Best! . ...Read more
