Discussions that mention prozac

Bipolar Disorder board


My daughter is on 300 mgs of Lithium a day, along with 10 mgs of Prozac. This combo seems to be working. I guess everyone is really different. She's only been on it for 2 months, but I've noticed a tremendous improvement in her moods. She's still really messy, but hey, she's only living with us for a few more weeks. Should she be having her blood levels monitored?? She'd never do that on her own!!

Liz :

Sounds like the Lithium and Prozac my be a winning combo. However,what do you really mean by "she's still really messy"? If she is moving out on her own, her emotional stability is got to be at it's best. And She has to take the responsibility of having her blood levels (serium Lithium) monitored on her own, as part of her ability to deal with BP Disorder.

I truly wish that she can make a "GO" at this.
It's called "live and learn" !
