Does anyone take 2 anti depressants?


I take Paxil for depression but I think another one might need to be added.

I only take Prozac for depression, but my pdoc told me that it if stops working and no longer helps, he plans to add a small dose of Lithium.

I take Zoloft, but also Lamictal for depression, though it is not classified as an antidepressant. It is actually an anti-seizure med that is effective in controlling bipolar depression.

I was on wellbutrin for about 2 years and it kept depression at bay. But I had horrible bad breath. I was taking the generic wellbutrin. I just need something at night to keep my depression at bay.

I take two anti depressants, lexapro and wellbutrin. The addition of the wellbutrin has been a goodsend. I found only the brand name wellbutrin xl worked for me. Maybe see if your pdoc would write a script for it to be dispensed as written.
