Can an anti-depressant help an anti-psychotic work better?

What have your experiences been?

Hi @MissJennyJen welcome to the forum.

I take both an antidepressant and an antipsychotic but I don’t know whether one helps the other out in their jobs.


I tried antidepressants but all made me worse, so i avoid them all now.

it worked for me…
i take Zyprexa 5 mgs and vanelafaxine(anti_depressant) 75mg…!!!

did you read the post by the moderator sarcosine helps make antipschotics work better and also works as an antidepressant

It’s depended on which antidepressant it is. Tofranil was a nightmare. The two I take now have helped lighten my mood and remember more good rather than bad things.
