fluoxetine + lamotragine

Posted by rjlockhart37 on December 10, 2020, at 11:34:33

this morning accidnetly took 120mg of prozac. Got up took 1, went back to sleep, then got up and forgot i took it and took my usal dose 80mg. There's not much difference but i can notice and antidepressant effect, but i drank some coffee too, and it made me irrtible, or just i hated the feeling mood was fluxuating so took 2nd lamotragine 200mg and now feeling ok. I've been on prozac a long time, but i'm on 2 mood stablizers lamictal and nuerontin which is off label mood stablizer and im ok this morning. Not the best, i usally never feel the best but average or mediocre in mood.

I read fluoxetine is lesser effective SSRI than seratiline and other SSRIs, Effexor is potent, more potent than prozac, the low doses seem to hit serotonin, higher does like 225mg and 300mg hit norephinephrine. Prozac hits NE at 80-120mg but still its not as potent as effexor. Effexor sometimes is used in conjunction with a stimulant for ADHD, with patients because it bumps NE up

So, accident 120mg this morning, not much difference but i defeintly can tell antidepressant effect, lamotragine and gabapentin on top of it seem to help. I take gabapentin 600mg X 3 daily. I read that it was, yes off-label mood stablizer but in actual terms it's not. It's used with other mood stablizers i guess to synergy the effect. I always had mood swings as a kid, and really instead of being on ritilin as a kid, i needed to be on prozac and lithium to cope with childhood mood swings, but that's done with

I don't know if anyone here takes Prozac but it's an ok antidepressant, not as potent as others, but defeintly has a warm feeling when its working and less depressed. Lamotragine has antidepressant effect by just treating bipolar depression rather than depression itself prozac does not increase dopamine, maybe it does indirectly but it's mainly serotonin and norephineprhine at higher doses
