I was prescibed trazodone for insomnia but had allergy next he prescibed Ambien but makes me feel weird, is it bad to suggest Xanax (alprazolam) or other med?

I was prescibed trazodone for insomnia but had allergy next he prescibed Ambien but makes me feel weird, is it bad to suggest Xanax (alprazolam) or other med?

Cause for insomnia?: Referral (possibly to psychiatrist) for thorough evaluation of your insomnia might be the smartest request you could make. It's better than asking for more medicines when it's not clear "why" you're having this problem. If you're still taking vyvanse (as on your other info), this may be related. Ambien (zolpidem) can indeed result in feeling "weird" -- also doing odd things at night after taking it. ...Read more

I take Sertraline HCL 50 MG and Trazodone 150 MG Is it ok to take Benadryl (diphenhydramine) allergy liqui-Gels 25 MG with the other meds?

I take Sertraline HCL 50 MG and Trazodone 150 MG Is it ok to take Benadryl (diphenhydramine) allergy liqui-Gels 25 MG with the other meds?

For what?: All meds have potential adverse effects and the more meds you are on increases this risk. Both sertraline and trazodone are antidepressants, but you are likely taking trazodone for sleep and these 2 are not an uncommon combo. Benadryl (diphenhydramine) is also sedating. If you need Benadryl (diphenhydramine) for allergies talk to your doc about tapering down trazodone. Also consider seeing an allergist ...Read more

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 am on celexa for anxiety, wellbutrin (bupropion) for energy and desyrel for insomnia. I have increased sweating anything I can take to combat it?

Prescribing: Some people feel that a separate medication should be given to "combat" each symptom -- rather than investigating causes or seeing systemic inter-relationships. Is this maybe you? Excessive sweating can indicate issues with your medications (possible serotonin overload, for instance). Please work with your physician to review & deal with this, rather than automatically seeking another drug. ...Read more
