"While it is generally safe to begin a different antidepressant after a 14-day washout, patients should be monitored closely after the washout period since there have been case reports of interactions, including serotonin syndrome, following 14-day washout periods.58 Similar caution should be exercised when switching from one MAOI to another, although more rapid switches (18 days) have been safely performed.57,59 A washout period of five half-lives for an antidepressant and its active metabolites should be provided before initiating an MAOI.57 This would require approximately a 45 week washout period for fluoxetine"


everything can change like that, and all these years go by so fast, but nothing lasts forever
