Which is a better anti depressant fluoxetine 20 mg or escitalopram 5 mg for depression? I also take trifluoperazine 2.5 mg.
Both effective: Both fluoxetine and escitalopram are effective antidepressants, but people vary in what works best for them. Your psychiatrist will adjust your dose in accordance with your response.

Talk w/psychiatrist: You can talk with your psychiatrist about the results you're getting. Ask whether different medications, or maybe augmenting those you're already taking, would be useful.
