In brief: Avoid

Not sure about how well n-acetyl-l-tyrosine is absorbed and metablized in the body.
However, the base component, tyrosine is an Amino Acid that is in the precursor pathway for Dopamine production. Dopamine is an important neurotransmitter in certain parts of the brain. Prozac (fluoxetine) and ssris have been shown to impact Dopamine levels. So, I am not sure what effect they would have in combination.
