Re: Need input on Lamictal and Prozac combo theo

In reply to Need input on Lamictal and Prozac combo, posted by theo on September 2, 2004, at 18:56:42

I was taking Lamictal with Prozac, Remeron,Wellbutrin, and Lithium in different combos, but always including Prozac.

Lamictal helped enhance the effect of Prozac, but after, 5 months, I quit taking all and switched to Nardil which I ended up quitting because of intense insomnia, although it was effective in decreasing my depression.

Currently, I am taking Lexapro and I am unipolar depression free. It took Lex 45 days to kick in but when it kicked in, I was depression free. Prozac was my first AD and worked very well for 7 years until it finally pooped out. Hope this helps and good luck to you.
