Hi Ed,

No I am not sure I want to stop Prozac completely and probably will never do so. My idea is a good antimanic ie:Trileptal without weight gain/hair loss issues etc. I like the sodium and calcium channel action(possibly potassium) without the effect on GABA. Be the first to respond to my new post on Depakote/Trileptal equivalency. You will set a good pace.lol. John
