Can wellbutrin and Buspar (buspirone) and Risperdal togther Help GAD without take ssirs because of sexual side effects?
Yes, potentially: although I don't think I would put Risperdal into the mix unless there was concern about either some thought disorder (schizoaffective or schizotypal) or evidence of bipolar disorder.

The extended release forms are better. ...Read more
