> hi thanks for your post, though after doing some research i found that atypicals would block the activating effects of prozac, i found that geodon is a strong 5ht2c antagonist like prozac and at low doses it is just as activating untill the dose is raised to have enough d2 antagonism on bourd to block the activating effects, so i guess it would be the same with mixing prozac with an AP, i was wondering becouse when i retried prozac under abilify i didnt feel anything and thought it just wasnt going to work for me again, as for caffeine, i know that it shouldnt be used if you have an anxiety disorder, but for me it used to help, which sounds confusing i know

Now I'm confused (which isn't hard to do)!! I take Prozac which works great for my depression, however I need to up the dosage but when I do I get hypomanic so I can only take 20mg which doesn't help me as much as I need. I'm trying to find something to use with the Prozac that will allow me to increase dosage of Prozac for the depression but will keep me from becoming hypomanic. Does this make sense?
