Why would my doctor prescribe both, Lamictal and Prozac for BPD?

Hi, Heavyweight! Lamictal, an anticonvulsant, controls mood swings and mania very well in many patients, but is not necessarily considered particularly effective in treating depressive episodes.

Prozac is a SSRI to treat depression in general. As to why your doctor prescribe both meds for you, my opinion is Prozac shouldn't be used alone to treat BPD II unless mixed with a mood stabilizer (in your case is Lamictal).

I too am also on an SSRI medication as well as Lamictal. I’m on Zoloft

I'm on prozac and lamictal. And also bipolar 1. I have more depressive episodes than mania lately so that's why I'm on both. Lamictal acts as a mood stabilizer and the prozac is for the depression. free discount card
