Can busbar pristiq (desvenlafaxine) or seroquel XR diazepam cause anger issues?

Can busbar pristiq (desvenlafaxine) or seroquel XR  diazepam cause anger issues?

Pristiq (desvenlafaxine) and Diazepam: Pristiq (desvenlafaxine) can cause anger issues by triggering mania or hypomania. Diazepam can cause anger issues by its disinhibiting properties in the frontal lobes. Buspar does not have this effect and neither does seroquel. Seroquel if anything has an anti-anger effect. Buspirone lessens anger by knocking out anxious irritability. Best wishes and have a happy new year. ...Read more

Can i take Zoloft with wellbutrin, adderall, abilify, (aripiprazole) Neurontin and lamictal?

Lot of medications: I'm not sure whether these are all prescribed by the same physician? It sounds as though your bipolar disorder (from the additional info you supplied) may be quite hard to manage, and meds have been added but none removed. Perhaps you'd benefit from a second opinion about your case and possibly simplify your regimen. It could also be that your symptoms demand high intensity measures. ...Read more

Can I mix seroquel (quetiapine) extended realese with the fast acting seroquel (quetiapine)??

Can I mix seroquel (quetiapine) extended realese with the fast acting seroquel (quetiapine)??

Yes.: Yes, but talk to your doctor first. I'm not sure what your rationale for combining regular with the extended release, but I could think of a few reasons that might make sense for some patients (taking advantage of different half-lives at different times allowing for varying duration of effects depending on time of day etc). ...Read more

Can you please compare/contrast Effexor (venlafaxine) XR vs. Wellbutrin xl?

Can you please compare/contrast Effexor (venlafaxine) XR vs. Wellbutrin xl?

Very different meds: Effexor (venlafaxine) xr works on serotonin and ne reuptake; wellbutrin xl works on ne and dopamine. Both are long-acting, and both work for depression. Effexor (venlafaxine) can help anxiety + depression; wellbutrin does nothing for anxiety. With wellbutrin the main dangerous side effect can be seizures; with Effexor (venlafaxine) it's possible hypertension. Sexual side effects with effexor; not so with wellbutrin. This isn't all! ...Read more

Taking Lamictal, luvox, (fluvoxamine) risperdol and klonopin.  Can I take adderall?

If by doctor's order: If you're taking these medications on doctor's order then, I cannot tell you NOT to take either one of them or any of them. But if what you're asking is whether or not it's SAFE to take ADDERALL (dextroamphetamine and racemic amphetamine) with all the other medications or whether or not it's really NECESSARY for to take ADDERALL (dextroamphetamine and racemic amphetamine) given the rest of the drugs you're taking then, that discussion should really be with your prescribing doctor. ...Read more

Can I take abilify, (aripiprazole) Prozac, ativan, trazadone and lithium together?

Yes but: This seems a bit much for anyone. Is there a way that you can speak to your doctor about streamlining your meds. The doc is treating you for bipolar issues,anxiety, depression, and sleep disorder. I suggest that you see if this doc or another can put you on a regimen that might help you sleep and still take care of the problem. Have the doc consider remeron (mirtazapine) ...Read more

Pdoc, seemed uncertain which med to taper first, seroquel or Effexor (venlafaxine) xr?

Pdoc,  seemed uncertain which med to taper first, seroquel or Effexor (venlafaxine) xr?

That depends: No diagnosis listed - just irritability, hopelessness & sleep disturbance. If the seroquel (quetiapine) was used solely for insomnia - I would stop that first. Seroquel (quetiapine) is a big gun for treating only sleep disturbance. A person could have severe depression & develop psychosis. If that were the case, I would stop the antipsychotic once the psychotic symptoms resolved - but would keep them on the antidepressant. ...Read more

Many meds: You've tried many meds already, although there are some you haven't mentioned that often help anxiety: buspirone, beta-blockers, other mood stabilizers besides lithium, etc. But after a person has tried so many medications and still has symptoms, i'd suggest non-medication approaches: psychotherapy, mindfulness, relaxation training, exercise/yoga, etc. ...Read more
