Do you have any new symptoms that you didn't have before? For example, are you more sensitive to light / sound?

Depending on the region of the stroke, brain connectivity can be impaired. If you found the event particularly traumatic, this too can leave an emotional burden.

I would go based on symptoms. You might try adjusting the dose of lamotrigine, fluoxetine or dextroamphetamine. You might try swapping fluoxetine for a different SSRI.

Of course 'environmental enrichment' (exercise, social interaction, trying new things) can help the brain re-establish connections. They can also increase BDNF and NGF which can help improve the brain's plasticity.

You might try adding some co-q10 (with doctor's supervision). It has some antidepressant properties and can improve the brain's mitochondrial energy.
