Clonidine Hydrochloride Menopause
No, mostly.: But that's because it's a really new drug, so it's not prescribed "often" for anything! It IS an antidepressant, and all antidepressants are also used as antianxiety meds. This is because depression and anxiety are often considered to be flip sides of the same coin within psychiatry. If you are not comfortable with idea of the med, talk to your doc. Otherwise, maybe try it and see how it goes? ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

Yes: Viibryd (vilazodone hydrochloride) is a new class of antidepressant. I have found it useful for anxiety as well as depression.

What about 30mg codiene to Demerol (meperidine hydrochloride)?
50mg tramadol to Demerol (meperidine hydrochloride)?: Meperidine (Demerol) 50 mg was superior to tramadol 50 mg for acute pain relief in patients with suspected renal colic when given intravenously. Because many patients in both groups received supplemental meperidine and the response to tramadol alone cannot be predicted, clinicians may want to choose higher doses of meperidine alone or other alternative combinations. ...Read more

They're very similar: Elavil (amitriptyline) (amitripyline) and tofranil (imipramine) are both tricyclic antidepressants, an older category. While they are effective against depression, both can cause antihistamine-like effects e.g., sedation, dry mouth, dry eyes, constipation, and temporary trouble focusing vision. Elavil (amitriptyline) does this a little more, so tofranil may be better unless elavil's extra sedation helps. ...Read moreSee 3 more doctor answers
