Celexa (citalopram) and risperidone. Are these two together help for GAD and tremors?

Yes.: Celexa (citalopram) helps with depression which is often associated with anxiety. GAD causes excessive anxiety and worry fatigue, irritability, restlessness, muscle tension, poor concentration and sleep disturbance which then causes depression.

Im on Zoloft and Buspar (buspirone) and Risperdal for deeprassnt  can Risperdal bi replace to remeron? For insomnia and anxiety and deeprassnt? ??

Different rationale.: The Buspar (buspirone) is often used for anxiety but it may take time for it to work. Zoloft is an antidepressant of the SSRI class , Risperdal is an antipsychotic but is used in small doses for severe anxiety. Remeron is an atypical antidepressant and is used more to stimulate appetite or improve your sleep. Please discuss this with your doctor. He has specific reasons for the use of each drug. ...Read more

Can wellbutrin and effexor (venlafaxine) go together to help GAD, OCD, and depression?

Can wellbutrin and effexor (venlafaxine) go together to help GAD, OCD, and depression?

Sure: This is a fairly standard cocktail for depressive and anxiety disorders. While I prefer the newer version called Pristiq (desvenlafaxine) (because you don't need to titrate the dose like Effexor XR) ... That's more a matter of physician preference, hope that helps! ...Read more

Can wellbutrin and Buspar (buspirone) and Risperdal togther Help GAD without take ssirs because of sexual side effects?

Can wellbutrin and Buspar (buspirone) and Risperdal togther Help GAD without take ssirs because of sexual side effects?

Yes, potentially: although I don't think I would put Risperdal into the mix unless there was concern about either some thought disorder (schizoaffective or schizotypal) or evidence of bipolar disorder. Buspar (buspirone) is effective, but often the dose has to be gradually upped to the 60-90 mg range. Sometimes Wellbutrin may make anxiety worse, particularly if it is immediate release. The extended release forms are better. ...Read more

Can i take Cymbalta (duloxetine) 30mg and 25mg Zoloft both together because Cymbalta (duloxetine) good for anxiety and Zoloft help me for deeprtion?

Don't know why: you would want to do that. Cymbalta (duloxetine) can help with both anxiety & depression. Zoloft can also treat both anxiety & depression. Combining them could increase risk for serotoninergic syndrome. See you are also on ativan and risperidal. Please take only as directed by your physician/ psychiatrist. ...Read more

There any interaction between Zoloft (sertraline) 50mg and Risperdal 0.25 and remeron 15mg ?? And can bi combine together?

Discuss w/ provider: Hopefully the same doctor prescribed these or they consulted if it was not. There is a potential problem (serotonin syndrome) when Zoloft (sertraline) and Remeron are taken in combo. So, make sure this is the best treatment plan available to you since it needs close monitoring. They all interact w/ each other in a non-major way that can increase dizzy, drowsy, confused effects so be careful w/ what you do. ...Read more

Can wellbutrin (bupropion) and lithium improve anxiety, depression, and overal mood?

Can wellbutrin (bupropion) and lithium improve anxiety, depression, and overal mood?

Bipolar disorder: Bipolar disorder is often helped by lithium, which is a mood-stabilizing medication. Sometimes depression is severe enough despite this that an antidepressant like wellbutrin (bupropion) is added -- but not without the mood stabilizer. If prescribed by your psychiatrist and you are followed regularly, the combination may help your mood, wellbutrin (bupropion) is not an anti-anxiety medication, though. ...Read more

Im on Zoloft (sertraline) 50mg and Risperdal 0.25 for GAD can Risperdal work alone without zoloft (sertraline)?

Combination: At the very low dose of Risperdal you are taking is possible that the combination is what is making it more effective. You can discuss with your doctor, and suggest a trial. Since it is only a matter of trial and error, if it does not work, you will know for sure. ...Read more
