Mixing Prozac and Effexor

Posted by Lisa on September 14, 1998, at 21:17:46

Help Dr. Bob! I take adderall for ADD which works fine, but I am still somewhat depressed. My doctor first proscribed prozac 20mg per day. I took this for 31/2 weeks with absolutely no response except for feeling blah and very sleepy even with the adderall. He decided to switch me to effexor 37.5mg per day. To my surprise, it had an extremely positive effect within just hours after I had taken it, but this only lasted about 4 days then became negative. My doctor increased the effexor to 75mg which only made the side effects worse. He doesn't want to mix prozac and effexor together even at a low dosage. He says it is not a good combination, and would be concerned about seritonin syndrome. I would greatly appreciate some advice.
