Thanks to each one who checked their sources on this question. We have not found a documented link between this combination and Neuroleptic Malignant Syndrome. But each of the two drugs may cause it. /Mary -------- Original Message -------- Subject: Geodon-Zoloft interaction Date: Fri, 5 Jul 2002 13:18:54 -0400 From: Mary O Walker <[log in to unmask]> Reply-To: Mary O Walker <[log in to unmask]> Organization: New Jersey Department of Human Services To: [log in to unmask] I have been asked if I can find reports of an interaction between ziprasidone (Geodon) and sertraline (Zoloft) that would cause Neuroleptic Malignant Syndrome (NMS). Our pharmacist checked ePocrates and did not find anything. He called Pfizer, but they are on Holiday. I have searched Hansten & Horn's, Medline, PsychInfo, Google to no avail. These concerns may lead to change of patient treatment, so any help would be appreciated. Responses to this email [log in to unmask] would reach me most immediately. Mary O.
