... yet starting to wonder if its going to help or not always did well in the past
Hi Rabbithunter, I also take Prozac & it seem to help me a lot! I started off on 20 mgs about 5 months ago & a few months later my psch doctor put me on 40 mgs. Perhaps you should try 40 mgs with an add on, (of course with your dr's approval). Do u take an add-on already (other meds to enhance your antidepressant)? I think that prozac helps tame my emotions & therefore, I feel less emotional, not feeling depressed either, ( I don't have the motivation that I want, but my sadness is gone on the prozac)... Just a day ago, my dr recommended adding a mood stabilizer & I got my prescription, but have not started taking it yet. I tried a few other stabilizers like Lamictal & trileptal but they gave me a rash, so I had to stop taking them. I really liked the Lamictal a lot. Have u tried mood stabilizers yet with any success? I think u should discuss it with your dr & see how he feels. I also take Wellbutrin, xanax as needed & SAM-e. Good luck to you & keep me posted on how you are doing. I hope u find the right meds if prozac is not for u, but try discussing a higher dosage with your dr first. How were your experiences with other meds & are u depressed with a mood disorder or just depressed? Good luck to you & bless u!
