My former dr said that you could never take more than one at a time, but she was wrong. I take Effexor and Prozac, which are working for me. Other people in a support group I sometimes manage to get to take two, three, or even more. It depends on what works for you. For me, the Effexor not only fixed my anxiety right away, it boosted the Prozac, and so I'm happy as a clam - except that who knows whether a clam really is happy?

Still, combos work sometimes when one drug alone won't. For example, sometimes one drug will cause toxicity at a high dose, but a lower dose is ineffective unless given along with another to boost its effectiveness. Did that make sense? I'm a bit tired tonight.

Anyway, drug cocktails seem to work better than single drugs much of the time.
