Second update  
Saw Mark Pruitt, the Nurse Practitioner, this morning. Have two new scrips, neither for Lamictal. One is for Remeron, which is another SSRI but targets a different receptor than Prozac. The other is for Klonopin as needed, since I've had a couple of anxiety attacks since this depression hit.

I'm supposed to start the Remeron in conjunction with the Prozac until I'm stabilized, then come off the Prozac. Have follow-up appointment with Nancy Davis next week, and Mark Pruitt in three weeks.

Sounds like a plan. I'm glad you're taking care of yourself.

Remeron does have an effect on seratonin, but it isn't usually classified as an SSRI. It also increases production of norepinephrine. It's the stuff (well, the generic, Mirtazapine) I was put on after the Prozac tried to kill me. It's done great things for my brainmeats - I hope it works as well for you.

Klonopin derails my panic attacks quite nicely. It also makes me sleepy. It is generic, so it is affordable. Good stuff.
