Interactions with food items
- Avoid cola drinks, chocolate and food items with caffeine. They increase serotonin levels and may result in serotonin syndrome, a serious condition marked by symptoms like high fever, agitation, vomiting, nausea, fast heartbeat, trembling, sweating, and sudden jerky movements of the muscles....
