Dear Kristi, I'm so sorry you're having such a rough time of it right now. Just wanted to let you know there's someone out here who understands and has compassion. There's actually a drug interaction place within this site! You type in the names of the meds, & it brings them up & tells you. I would really encourage you to talk with your Dr again. It may dangerous to just quit a med abrubtly. Please stay with your lithium ( I'm on it too ), and hang in there. Since the lamotrigene was so helpful to you I hope you will be able to find a way to receive it again. zizilee
Funny because I was looking for this answer myself. I don't trust the place I go to the doc had me on Prozac for a year my hormones must've been crazy my face broke out horrible,I wanted 2 ram my head in a wall,got in a bs fight got arrested n now have a record,I kept telling him I felt manic anyway was on it for a year then I tell a doc from the same place no anti depressants he gave me n I felt a lil manic n stopped,sometimes dunno if it's me or the meds which is what brings me here,I did the interaction checker n they both increase serotonin n I've been feeling off,I've been on lithium solo n buspar solo but not together till recent,if Prozac increases serotonin n makes me nuts could this mix do the same?
