Lol, I never was sure why you wanted to do that!
>My goal is elimination of prozac
Are you sure you want to come off Prozac completely? Trileptal might not be very effective for depression on its own. A low dose of Prozac could be sufficient, in clinical trials of 5mg/day, some people apparantly did well. Low incidence of side effects at this dose.
>I just need some advice on titration.
I would start with a lower dose than the initial dose recommended for epilepsy. Once you've been on the Trileptal for a few weeks I'd attempt to withdraw the Depakote.
