When should I call the doctor?

In severe cases, serotonin syndrome can affect how vital body systems function. Serotonin syndrome may even lead to a loss of consciousness (fainting or passing out).

See a doctor right away if you believe you may have signs of serotonin syndrome. Take extra caution if you have risk factors for the condition.
