In brief: Don't know the

Doses.
It sounds like this is not a cross titration but rather doubling up the medications for a week? There are some people who develop serotonin syndrome even at low medication doses. However, for most people - the higher amounts of serotonin are the issue. Without knowing doses can't really comment.
