What kind of whey protein can I take while on Prozac (fluoxetine) 40mg? I heard that certain whey protein can cause serotonin syndrom. Thank you for your time.

Limit quantity: Serotonin syndrome can be caused by taking high amounts of tryptophan with Prozac (fluoxetine) & other ssri's. Tryptophan occurs in many foods like dairy & turkey as well.

Pure protein like whey does not cause this. But one will not have muscle gain just by eating whey- only by exercising as well! I strongly advise whey from grass-fed cows not given hormones & antibiotics, even better if processed at a low temperature. ...Read more
