Switching from one serotonin reuptake inhibitor (SRI) to another is generally safe. Serotonin syndrome is not really a concern. I will be taking Trintellix in a month or two. If for some reason I need to switch from Trintellix to Effexor (two SRIs), my doctor will not require me to do a washout. He's pretty sharp. Otherwise, I can't see any reason why going from Zoloft to Trintellix should be a problem. I'll be interested to know what others think.

* Switching directly between SRIs and MAOIs is extremely dangerous and should be avoided. For this kind of switch, a washout period is necessary.
