I was on Prozac for 13 years to treat anxiety. This year it quit working for me. I have been on Viibryd, (vilazodone hydrochloride) and Paxil CR. Neither worked. What next?

More than drugs: Effective expert psychotherapy (CBT) is shown to be the key factor in optimal outcomes. You were able to avoid learning better skills for managing your life for a long time, but it seems that the time has come. So, I urge your next move to be finding a good therapist. Either w/ or w/out another medication that's what's been missing. Find one you trust and it will be worth your effort. Best! ...Read more

Psychiatrist put me on [paxil cr 12.5, wellbutrin (bupropion) 150, clomipramine 50mg, laxoberon] all od. My anxiety attacks gettin worse.Any advise to stop panic plz?

Unusual combination: Wellbutrin is unlikely to help anxiety at all. Either Paxil (paroxetine) (p) or clomipramine (c) would be sufficient for anxiety disorder, but usually at significantly higher doses. If both are continued as doses are raised, there is increased risk of serotonin syndrome and and of side-effects from just c, as p tends to raise levels of c. Laxoberon for constipation. Talk to your doc about this. Hope this helps. ...Read more

I am on 12.5mg CR Paxil (paroxetine) and 12.5 mg mtaprolol is it ok to take them together?
I'm not feeling good, mild nausea, stress, feeling fainting, burning

Doubt from them: interaction of these two medications will not cause these symptoms. You more than likely have something else going on. Or exactly all your burning? How long has this been going on? Has it only been present since you've been on these medications? Do you have any other medical problems? ...Read more

Discuss with doctor: Severe anxiety can cause undue suffering and be extremely debilitating. Your despair is certainly understandable. However, the "resistance" that you are currently experiencing may be due to various factors other than lack of efficacy. Recommend seeing your doctor ASAP for a comprehensive evaluation and discussing treatment options depending on findings. Hope this is helpful. All the best. ...Read more
