Which is best for anxiety: seroquel (quetiapine) or risperdal?

Neither: Although Seroquel (quetiapine) and Risperdal (risperidone) both strongly reduce anxiety, neither are first-line treatments, as their side-effect risks are too great. For most people, better treatments for anxiety include non-drugs like psychotherapy, relaxation training, mindfulness mediation, etc, or SSRI antidepressants (which also treat anxiety), Buspar, (buspirone) or "benzo" tranquilizers. ...Read more

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

Im on Cymbalta 60mg Risperdal 0.25mg can Abilify (aripiprazole) 1mg add to my medication because Risperdal Abilify (aripiprazole) both good for me?

That question is: A good one for your doctor. Those types of medication changes are best made in partnership with a physician who knows you, and your medication history, very well. It would be presumptuous of me to give you advice in this context, but your doc will be happy to discuss this with you at your next visit. Best wishes to you! ...Read more

Can i take Abilify (aripiprazole) and olanzapine together?

Can i take Abilify (aripiprazole) and olanzapine together?

Yes but: They are two meds of the same class but can feel very different. Abilify (aripiprazole) tends to cause insomnia while Olanzapine is very sedating. Raising the dose of Abilify (aripiprazole) may cause sedation at or above 20mg, reducing the need for olanzapine. Olanzapine has a lot of wt gain and problems with blood sugars and is usually reserved for patients who haven't responded to other agents. ...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

What are the side effects of taking Zoloft (sertraline) and trazodone together at once? 150 mg for Zoloft (sertraline) and 50 mg for trazodone.

Not many: Zoloft (sertraline) and trazodone are often prescribed together. Some people find that zoloft (sertraline) can interfere with sleep and trazodone often provides the necessary sleep relief. Make sure to take trazodone at bedtime, and i would recommend taking zoloft (sertraline) in the morning. Zoloft (sertraline) and trazodone each have side effects, but their combination does not tend to cause other effects separate from those side effects. ...Read more
