Well, ask this question of 10 doctors and you'll get 10 different opinions.

I would say do things from other classes of meds that you have not done.

For example, if it is to be Prozac, then match it up with 5mg Zyprexa. Don't try to figure it out scientifically, ya know, the dopamine thing or whatever. That kind of armchair quarterbacking doesn't work, as you saw with celexa. There was no reason it should have worked, but it did. Just know Prozac+Zyprexa is a special combination.

Or return to Celexa and try adding Abilify to it first, zyprexa second if that fails, with risperdal on the back burner.

More common things would be to add lithium or buspar or ritalin.

Me personally, I've experienced and see some good things with SSRIs + antipsychotics. It is just a matter of finding the right two.

My two cents worth.
