Not effective?: Need more information to understand your primary concern - is your concern the regimen is not effective, or too much? Or is your concern with the regimen itself?

I am taking a low dose of xanax (alprazolam) but lately feel depressed and crying. What antidepressant is ok. Tried both wellbutrin and prozac with bad side effect?
Unanswerable: Xanax, (alprazolam) like all benzodiazepines, can increase symptoms of depression, although it is somewhat less likely to do that than other benzos in most people. This is a question for a psychiatrist or other mental health prescriber to answer, based on the kind of depression, its severity, exactly what side effects you had, how long you used them for and many other factors. Get advice in person, not online. ...Read more

Is Wellbutrin (100mg 2x/day), Fluoxetine (30mg) and Abilify (aripiprazole) (1mg, 2mg after a week) a safe combination for anxiety and depression?
Probably: Depending on yourneeds the combination seems reasonable. If the fluoxetine alone or in combination with wellbutrin doesn't remove/reduce depression, the addition of Abilify (aripiprazole) often helps. If, after a time this is not helpful... you didn't say you were in psychotherapy, but I would recommend it also. ...Read more

Take treatment for GAD by Prozac 40 mg, my GP wants add either Buspar (buspirone) or Wellbutrin to encounter side effects of Prozac, which the safe and ideal combo?
Buspirone: You may want to talk to your doc about a psychiatry referral since it sounds like (a)he may be in over their head. Buspirone is an anti-anxiety drug, but both Prozac and Wellbutrin (bupropion) can potentially exacerbate anxiety. There are many other potential options if Buspirone is not beneficial, but I would not abandon it before max dose of 60 mg/d. It should be taken 3-4 times dailu ...Read more

Does Prozac (fluoxetine) help anxiety/panic as well as depression? I know it's a bit more activating than other ssris but wondering if it's still good for anxiety
Prozac (fluoxetine) anxiety: Prozac (fluoxetine) is still one of the best drugs for depression. It is also a great choice for obsessive compulsive disorder and bulimia nervous. Although it is not indicated for anxiety it may help in an indirect way but I would not take it if your only diagnosis is anxiety. Now days many have multiple diagnosis so it may be part of you treatment plan but not the first choice. Off label can be for panic ...Read more
