1. SSRIs (selective serotonin reuptake inhibitors)
This is a class of drugs (Prozac, Zoloft and Paxil) which are used as prescription antidepressants. Functionally, they increase the levels of serotonin in the body. These drugs can be dangerous if they're mixed with other drugs such as other antidepressants, illicit drugs (LSD, cocaine, methamphetamine), some antihistamines (Seldane, Histmanal), some antibiotic s, and calcium channel blockers. Side effects include lethargy, confusion, flushing, sweating and muscle spasms. Overdose can cause damage to red blood cells, breathing problems and kidney damage.
