Can i take nytol with fluoxetine?

I have been on these anti d's for 6 weeks now. My dr also gave me some sleeping pills which are amazing but I know I can't be prescribed anymore due to risk of addiction. So thought I would try some over the counter meds instead.

Does anyone know if I can take nytol?

Thanks

Hi

I too have trouble sleeping seem to be buzzing at night so would love to know too whether I can take Nytol with fluoxetine. Doc gave me Diazepam to take but these make me feel wierd and when I feel wierd I panic!!

Hi Lizzie

Yes it does get better. I felt absolutely awful during the first weeks but am feeling a little better its just sleeping that is the problem.

Hopefully Nytol doesn't interact with fluoxetine , hopefully someone will know. If not I am going to see my dr on Tues so I will ask her then

Hope you are ok.

Laura.xxxxx

Hi Mogwog, a pharmacist once told me I couldn't, but from what I've read since I'm not 100% sure she was right. Definitely one to ask your doc x

Hmmmn, you should be able to take it because it's herbal but still best to ask a dockie or pharmacist IMO.

I thought it contained valerian which isn't supposed to be taken with SSRIs cos it makes you excessively sleepy... May do the trick hehe
