serotonin syndrome is most often a minor event, it depends on the medications combined and your own "personal" response. Most cases of serotonin syndrome are mild and resolve themselves. I switched to a MAOI (from a serotonin drug) in just a couple of days, and I switched between two MAOIs within the same day. It really depends on you.

If you are considering taking off a couple days of the traditional MAOI wash-out period; I would first talk to your Dr. about it...like the extensive no-no food list, the "wash-out" period is a little excessive.
