Taking Symbyax with phenytoin can lower the amount of Symbyax in your blood, perhaps decreasing its effectiveness.

Your healthcare provider may need to adjust your dose of these medications to prevent these interactions from occurring.
 
SSRI or SNRI Medications
Taking Symbyax with SSRI or SNRI medications can cause serotonin syndrome. Talk to your healthcare provider before taking these depression medications together, and contact him or her right away if you have any symptoms of serotonin syndrome, as it can be a dangerous condition.
 
Additionally, taking Symbyax with fluvoxamine can raise the amount of Symbyax in your blood, potentially increasing your risk of side effects. If you are taking these drugs together, your healthcare provider may need to decrease your Symbyax dosage.
