thank you for response. I take Prozac, Lamictal, and zyprexa. They seem to synergy with eachother but i don't quite like the zyprexa. I was put on it long ago, because of an emerency at psych hospital. I just stayed on it but the first couple years i gained weight, and it also made me passive, and sometimes low motivation. I was calm most of the time, but it gave away that spontaneous motivation your suppost to have. Lamcital i take 400mg in morning - at the psych they said one at morninig and one at evening, i didnt do it that way. I told my doctor, and i take 400 in the moorning with 80mg Prozac. Both at max medical although lamotragine can go up to 800mg in siezure cases.

The Prozac - it makes things seem 'ok' but it's hard to describe. I can defeintly feel prozac's serotonin producing effect and also some norephinehrine but it's not a SNRI. Prozac from I've read is lesser effective SSRI, because it's the longest to take to work, and least selective oon serotonin sites. But it's half life is incredibly long, like 2-3 days. 80mg was only worked on me, my doctor was reluctant to use 80. But 120mg of prozac, i've ... taken it before because i accidnetly took 1 at bedtime. It's nothing like a major noticeable effect, but it keeps me up from being depressed, and synergy'd with lamictal that combination seems to work. I was just ... wondering 120mg would have an effect , because they use it for treatment resistant depression. Most doctors do not exceed medical maximum dose, although there's some that vigiously work with the patient, maybe they would explore that. Not my no.

37.5mg of effexor can have a similar effect to 80mg of prozac. Effexor is superior to prozac in treating depression, i've read that numerous times. We had to max the prozac to get an effect. So...don't really know what else to say, but lamotragine does work with fluoxetine.
