I have two questions:

(1) What is the maximum dosage of turmeric powder, extract or curcumin you have tried without side effects?
What are those side effects you have encountered? For example, I have been worried that a high dosage
of turmeric could result in Serotonin Syndrome, since it is a MAO inhibitor.

If you answer, please specify in what form (extract of turmeric, extract of the three curcuminoids,
pure curcumin, e.t.c) you have tried, and also for how long.

(2) I have read that switching from SSRI to an MAOI could result in Serotonin Syndrome
if not taking a 2 week wash out period. This only seems to apply -- as far as I have read -- to the
manufactured antidepressant drugs called MAOI, and not to natural MAOIs. However, I'm not a
100% sure. Therefore I wonder if anyone here has had experience with transiting from SSRI to
turmeric and how that has affected you?
