... Today I was prescribed 20Mg of Prozac to be taken with my Effexor. Has anyone been on this combo before? I would like to hear from anyone who has, and success or failure stories. thanks!
Many doctors prescribe Effexor with Prozac. I personally have never taken either of these medications, but I do take Lithium and Imipramine. Since you are experiencing resistant depression, this combination should work for you. If it doesn't work, there are many meds that can help. Some doctors will prescribe lithium with an antidepressant to help the antidepressant to work more effectively. If this combination doesn't work, don't give up hope! Sometimes it takes trial and error to find the right combination for your symptoms. If the newer SSRI meds don't work, you can ask your doctor about the older, tricyclic antidepressants. Imipramine and Elavil are excellent tricyclic antidepressants.
