If you need this combination, which is improbable but not unthinkable, you should start with the MAOI and reach a steady dose, then carefully introduce the precursor or the (S)SRI. Liquid preparations of SSRIs would be particularly appropriate for this purpose.

Better idea: add Amitriptyline. It doesn't seem to cause Serotonin syndrome when added to MAOI. It maybe can reach 70 - 80% SERT occupation at high doses, but it is a very strong 5HT2 antagonist and that might attenuate serotonin toxicity in combination with MAOI.
