Can 20mgs Prozac (fluoxetine) trigger hypomania in BP II person even when taken with lamotrigine?

In brief: That is possible.

Although the hope would be that the Lamictal would act as a safety umbrella for use of an ssri - to prevent development of hypomania - there is no guarantee that it will seamlessly provide that protection.
