My dr has me on low dose methotrexate, tramadol, Wellbutrin xr, buspar, (buspirone) Xanax and ambien. Are all these drugs safe together?

Comments: I would not be surprised to encounter drug-drug interactions here, which could enhance adverse effects, and even compromise intended efficacy. Not having a clue as to why you take any of these, I cannot advise further, but think you would do well to have an extensive discussion with your doctor about all of this. ...Read more

Been on Bupropion 300mg. Feel restless often and hard to fall asleep at night, need Xanax 0.5mg to sleep. Would Buspar (buspirone) be a better alternative?

Buproprion: Buproprion is not a first line agent for anxiety. It is often prescribed for depression with fatigue. If not taken first thing in the am it can cause restlessness and insomnia. You can take buspar (buspirone) for anxiety on an as needed basis. But it doesn't take the place of a daily antidepressant. Xanax is not a sleep aid and is highly addicitive. Follow up with your doctor ...Read more

Is it safe to take wellbutrin sr and Xanax (alprazolam) together daily and can I take them at the same time? I'm also worried about my seizures. Will I be ok?

Yes: Wellbutrin, is a commonly prescribed antidepressant, now gone generic due to age. Xanax (alprazolam) is also "well aged" and is available in the generic form Alprazolam wellbutrin, as is the case with all rx drugs, must report every possible side effect. Don't read the package insert and follow your drs advise. The combination should be fine and work well.







My advise is to not read the package insert, . ...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?

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

Can I take 10 mil of Adderall with 10 mil Buspar (buspirone) and. 25 of Xanax together. Sometimes I get testy and anxiety and confused?

Are you stating that: You become testing, anxiety ; confused with this combination of meds- if yes, discuss with your doctor. Checked this with a drug interaction checker ; no significant interactions were noted with buspar, (buspirone) Adderall and xanax. However, that is not a 100% guarantee. ...Read more

Can I take passion flower if I am taking remeron 30mg and Xanax 0.5mg at bedtime? What other herb might help anxiety through day? Or perhaps buspar (buspirone)?

Can I take passion flower if I am taking remeron 30mg and Xanax 0.5mg at bedtime? What other herb might help anxiety through day? Or perhaps buspar (buspirone)?

Passion flower: I would not recommend taking passion flower at the same time as other sedating medications (remeron, xanax) as it could increase this effect. There have been only a couple of pilot studies of passion flower extract, rather than head-to-head comparisons to pharmaceuticals. Passion flower could be taken during the day, or even bach rescue remedy. Buspar (buspirone) is reasonable also, & is more studied. ...Read more

I take: Buspar (buspirone) 10mg (3xday) for anxiety, desyrel 100mg (nightly) for sleep, and. 5mg Xanax (3xday as needed) for anxiety. Desyrel isn't helping my sleep, what medicine is best to help me get sleep?

Treat anxiety first.: The use of Buspar (buspirone) and xanax are only useful for short term or for occasional treatment of anxiety. They lose effectiveness after a period of monthe. The ssri meds (like lexapro, zoloft) are more effective for the long run and then maybe good sleep will be more possible. Also the dose of Desyrel can be up to 200 mg for some people. ...Read more

I started taking natrol vitamin supplements for anxiety. I'm still having anxiety. Can I take a buspar (buspirone)? I was px Buspar (buspirone) 5mg. But have not taken it yet. Wanted to try a natural approach. Because Xanax and ativan had too many side ef

Yes you can: But Buspirone is not free of potential side effects either; no drug is. No 'natural' approach is necessary risk-free either. Buspirone can cause headaches and dizziness as most comon symptom, and I recommend starting 5 mg twice a day for several days, then increase to 10 mg twice a day and give it several weeks. Talk to the prescribing doctor for their advice. Psychotherapy is also an approach. ...Read more

Can I take wellbutrin and Buspar (buspirone) together?

Yes: Yes. If you have an anxiety diagnosis (which is suggested by your interest in buspar), be aware that wellbutrin (bupropion) sometimes can aggravate anxiety. Wellbutrin (bupropion) is very handy to have around for many cases of depression, add, and smoking cessation, and is usually well-tolerated. But there is that potential for aggravating anxiety. ...Read more

Is it okay to take a Xanax (alprazolam) periodically while on wellbutrin?

Probably, but: There is some concern that individuals who take xanax (alprazolam) regularly w/ wellbutrin & abruptly stop the xanax (alprazolam) may increase seizure risk (esp if there is a history of seizures). Also, wellbutrin may reduce the effectiveness of xanax (alprazolam). Occasional use is probably not associated with any significant interactions. However, consult your doc since he/she is knows your situation best. ...Read more

Can I take Nyquil with 2 mgs of Xanax (alprazolam) for sleep about 7 hours after taking my last 30 mg dose of Adderall IR? I am only prescribed Xanax (alprazolam) not Adderall.

Not recommended: Nyquil is risky w/ both the other drugs. Risks high BP w/ Adderall and can cause confusion, dizziness, etc w/ Xanax (alprazolam). W/o a Rx, you ought not take Adderall anyway. These are serious drugs, be careful. Your body is a valuable possession, take care of it! Be well! ...Read more
