Fibronodular shadows seen in left apex. PPD is positive. Sputum smear = 0. No tb symptoms. Am I contagious or do i have a latent tb?

--T.B.

Are you at risk for seretonin syndrome if only on 100mg of zoloft (sertraline) or is it usually only seen with the highest doses ? And is seretonin S. Common ?

Little risk.: Serotonin syndrome is uncommon, and seen at high doses or in situations in which numerous drugs are interacting. With 100 mg of sertraline (Zoloft) it would be exceptionally rare, and perhaps impossible -- unless combined with other medications. ...Read more
