> I took 10 mg zyprexa with _ amount of prozac. I hated it. I don't think prozac is the one to take. I found celexa realy good. I still take the zyprexa. I tried the prozac thing too many times. I would always stop taking it, didn't think it helped at all. So I gave up on AD's for a while, because the doctor was not prescribing anything else. Till more recently, 2 years ago.

Hi Ivan,

Actually, I decreased the prozac to around 5-10 mg. It is hard to tell because I am opening the capusule and dumping about half out. I didn't want to do this without my pdoc's advice but he did not show for my appt. last week and the hypomania was too much for me. I feel so much better....more calm and less hypomania. I see my pdoc in two days and will talk to him about discontinuing the prozac all together or keeping at a very low dose. I am still having some insomnia so I think if I ditched the prozac, this would improve, although I still think an AD is needed. I have tried Lexapro, which is similar to celexa, but was so quesy I had to discontinue. Effexor was the worst and zoloft pooped out on me after 9 years.

What side effects did you get from the prozac and what dosage were you on? Are you BPII?

Thanks for your help.

Nicole
