Can You take 2 low grade AD?

Together? I am on a low grade of Lexapro 10mgs, and need something else to help boost it, and have not health insurance. Can you take like a low dose of Prozac with it or something in that family @ a low dose and does it help?

I am going to the dr. next week but always come here to my friends that really understand me ............better...........

God bless.

Re: Can You take 2 low grade AD?

There are a ton of mental health drugs that are taken together all though I am unsure about two in the same categories. There is serotonin syndrome which can be a problem for some people when mixing too much of the same thing. Right now I take Pristiq and Cymbalta and have been doing so for quite sometime. When money is an issue you can ask your doctor for samples and you can also contact the drug companies as many have programs to help. I should point out all of the medication in the world is not going to cure severe depression as that needs therapy to take care of the issues at hand. Most mental health agencies do offer group therapy for free
