I hate to sound stupid but what exactly is seritonin syndrom? I did look it up, but still did not really get it.
I went to my PD yesterday and she wants me to add 10 mg of Lexapro at night to my 225 of effexor, which I take in the morning. I asked about just increasing the effexor but was told that she would have to refer me to another doctor.
