I am writing this about a frind who has within the past day had a complete psycotic break with reality. She hasn't always been the most menally healthy person, but never, ever, ever has acted the way she is now. I'm just curious as to whether it could be a med interaction (she was just put on the remeron and inderal a few days ago, and also is known to abuse her adderal.)
