Prozac, Dexedrine, & Ativan Cocktail

Has anyone ever heard of, or been on, the combination of 40mg Prozac, 30mg Dexedrine, and 4-6mg Ativan daily?  I was on this for 7 years, along with narcotics for terrible migraines.  Been drug free for 3 years with no depression, but man...was it awful getting off all that stuff!

Would love to hear from anyone with this combo or hear any stories about Zoloft, Prozac, & Effexor side effects and withdrawals.

I was taking 40 mg prozac, 60 mg dexedrine, and taking xanex as needed.  I just changed the prozac to 150 mg effexor, because my Insurance co. wouldn't let me continue getting brand name prozac (the generic brand didn't work the same.  I had no problem changing over to effexor, no withdrawal effects from prozac.  What made you get off the meds?  That's wonderful you are no longer depressed.  I don't think I will ever get off the anti-depressants.  I remember living without them BEFORE them, and I was not a happy  person.  Prozac was my first anti-depressant and it was a miracle drug for me.  I have been on Effexor for 3 mths, and I am not sure if it's truly the answer.  I go see my Pdoc tomorrow.

I am on 40 prozac and ativan as needed for depression and anxiety. Before i was on prozac i had never had a panic attack,and while i dont blame stopping prozac for the panic attacks, i know i will never be able to funtion now without it. The depression i feel i have a hold on, but the anxiety is unbearable without the prozac, and only partially controlled on it.
