How do you all go about finding the right combination? Does a doctor recomment them to you. How long do you try them before you make a decision whether they are effective or not? THis strikes me as something new---mixing meds, like a coctail. It was hard enough finding the right dosage for one med. Please help.

Hi, Jude.

My p-doc (or regular doc) was always the one to suggest a second med. I've taken Wellbutrin with various SSRI's, that's the only mix I've really done.


I think the guideline is ... about 6 to 8 weeks before you can tell if a med may make a difference. It took 10 weeks one time for Prozac to kick in for me, so don't give up fast!
