I want to take Claritin for allergies. I’m on Zoloft, Wellbutrin, vistaril (spelling), and trazodone. Any major drug interactions?
You might: It is not uncommon to have allergic reactions (ar's) to both Nefazodone and trazodone. It is easy to confuse ar's with medication side effects (se's).

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.

If you need Benadryl (diphenhydramine) for allergies talk to your doc about tapering down trazodone. Also consider seeing an allergist ...Read moreSee 3 more doctor answers
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 moreSee 3 more doctor answers
