In reply to Adderall, Prozac & Amitriptyline?, posted by dove on September 23, 1999, at 13:53:35

> I finally went to the psyche doc and was diagnosed as Bipolar I, ADHD, GAD, and Panic disorder. With mild OCD and PTSD as secondary disorders. Now, to my questions. I have been taking 75mgs of Ami and the psyche doc has me taking adderall (20 mgs per day) to start and prozac (20 mgs per day) for start, all to be raised in 16 days. Is this a normal (ha! what's normal anyway?) combination of meds? Is there any risk of serotonin syndrome? He also said that lithium will be added at a later date, as I become 'stabalized' on this combination. I have been on tegretol before and was a zombie so I'm a little afraid of the lithium, is it different than tegretol?

Dove -

I would just watch out for mania or hypomania
with all the antidepressants. Amitriptyline is
pretty sedating and I still use it for sleep. It
has not produced manic symptoms for me because I
tend to sleep well. SSRI's can have the opposite
effect, so watch out for insomnia. Best of luck,
