I've done countless crossovers from one med to another, or with herbs involved, where serotonin syndrome was a risk. The way I handled that was not with a wash out. Instead I did cross tapers - weaning off of one while titrating onto another, keeping the overall total dose low until the transfer was complete.

Prior to that I did do washouts. I found them to be overly cautious and not necessary. They were also torture because I had to suffer withdrawal symptoms which could be nastier than the actual thing I was trying to treat.
