I'm taking lithium carbonate and trifluoperazine, ok?

Depends. Lithium is prescribed for bipolar disorder and certain types of depression. Trifluoperazine is an antipsychotic prescribed mainly for psychotic disorders like schizophrenia, or depression where there are psychotic symptoms. The 2 medications can be combined when 1 alone is not helping.Trifluoperazine is an older medication and is possibly more likely to cause side effects than newer medication.
