> 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.

Memantine may also require a dose increase. It did for me, several times. In fact, I don't know at what dose it might have stabilised for me. Watch out for (hypo)mania.

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

It's my understanding that statins inhibit the body's endogenous production of co-enzyme Q10, so it is particularly indicated (due to rosuvastatin) in this case.
