just for the record, though I haven't asked my psychiatrist or my pharmacist about zinc lozenges interacting w/ SSRI's, I have taken them for less than I week along w/ Zoloft (250 mg), Buspar (30 mg) and trazodone (50 mg) and did not notice any change in effectiveness of the antidepressants. the zinc seemed to help with cold symptoms.

and just fyi, though my psychiatrist does not see any problem with taking over-the-counter cold meds w/ my antid's, my pharmacist is not confident that they don't interfere with the action of the latter (though the combination is not considered otherwise dangerous). he recommended nasal decongestant spray because it is not systemic, which at least allows me to breathe--these can only be used for max. 3 days.

I would be interested in hearing other strategies for sidestepping potential drug interaction problems with anti-depressants & over-the-counter remedies.
