Ok to ask: Prozac (fluoxetine) and Elavil are definitely used for mood and have other uses as well, that may be helpful in your case, such as Elavil at night to help you sleep. Klonopin is not an antidepressant but a benzodiazepine, most commonly used for anxiety, but again has other uses. If you have any concerns about using all three medications, it's always best to meet with the prescribing doctor for clarification.
