Wellbutrin150mg and marijuana cause seizures on person with Anxiety desorder?

Wellbutrin150mg and marijuana cause seizures on person with Anxiety desorder?

Very unlikely but: Wellbutrin (bupropion) causes seizures in about 1 in 1000 people who take 300 mg or less. The incidence of seizures increases with higher doses. Marijuana actually reduces risk of seizures. Many people who suffer from seizures poorly controlled by drugs finds marijuana often helps them far better than meds.

What medication can a person with petit mal epilepsy if they take Latuda (lurasidone) for their paranoid schizophrenia and autism?

What medication can a person with petit mal epilepsy if they take Latuda (lurasidone) for their paranoid schizophrenia and autism?

Oooh, good question: The two most commonly prescribed meds for absence (petit mal) epilepsy are ethosuximide and valproate. Both interact with Latuda (lurasidone) by an additive effect of psychomotor retardation (dullness) and risk of depression. This can be managed by slow ramp-up of drugs, clear information of what to look for, and input from famiily/friends about overall function. With dose adjustments both may be managed. ...Read more

If behavioral or cognitive issues dominate, psychiatric problems lik ...Read more

Can iatrogenic amphetamine psychosis and bipolar disorder cause deviant sexual behavior?

Can iatrogenic amphetamine psychosis and bipolar disorder cause deviant sexual behavior?

Yes: Amphetamines can mimic mania, and both amphetamine use and mania can provoke hypersexual activity.
