Hello I suffer from SAD generalised type even in most social events and actions. What's the best drug? Can I take remeron or zoloft (sertraline)? Which is better?

Hello I suffer from SAD generalised type even in most social events and actions. What's the best drug? Can I take remeron or zoloft (sertraline)? Which is better?

Look for underlying: I assume SAD refers to social anxiety disorder vs seasonal affective disorder vs schizoaffective disorder

Finding the underlying cause is always better than taking a pill to mask the symptoms and create more symptoms. Looking at neurotransmitters. For example pyrrole disorder (which can be helped by zinc and vitamin B 6) can explain the social anxiety symptoms. Try desensitization, relaxatio ...Read more

What med would be more suitable for G A D.Lexapro (escitalopram) or remeron. Thanks or could you suggest some other medicine which does not cause a decreased sex driv?

Well...: There are different classes of medications aimed at treating anxiety. I see you are already on diazepam which can be very addictive. Adding another med to help your anxiety is reasonable. Are you seeing a psychologist too to help you? A psychologist helps as much or more than taking more medications in most cases. SSRI's can cause sexual problems but try first to see then check back 1 month. ...Read more

Can we take cough medicine and herbal cough medicine along with mirtazapine??

Can we take cough medicine and herbal cough medicine along with mirtazapine??

What's in it?: Usually that is ok. Some antidepressants, the MAO Inhibitors, can cause very bad high blood pressure reactions with some cold meds. Mirtazepine can be sedating at lower doses, and increase sedating effects of cough syrup, or lead to an idiosyncratic reaction. Herbal remedies are usually benign but sometimes they have active components that can have reactions with prescribed meds. ...Read more

Medication Question: It would be best for you to contact your prescribing physician. If meds are prescribed by different physicians contact one of them and ask about all three in combination.

Is there such thing as Saphris (asenapine) withdrawal? I am experiencing anxiety upon discontinuing. I know it is a new drug. Will mirtazapine help with anxiety?

See below: When you begin or stop a drug like Saphris (asenapine) that affects your clarity of thought, it is possible to experience unpleasant side effects like anxiety and changes in sleep and eating. Mirtazepine has had mixed results, but even if it does work for you, the effect would not be immediate - you'd need take it for weeks. Contact your doc about other, short-term options - e.g., a Klonopin dose increase? ...Read more

Highly unlikely;: Highly unlikely from a single event, but how much and how often you drink, what other medicines you take, genetic predisposition, and current health state of your liver all impact the result.

I'm on Mirtazapine for anxiety and depression but have chronic belching since I started on it. Is the drug causing the belching?

Mirtazapine: This medication has multiple adverse reactions many of them gastrointestinal. I was not able to find belching or burping as a listed side effect. However, if his symptom started at the same time as you started the medication it may be related. I would discuss this with your doctor. Do not stop this medication suddenly s severe problems can occur. ...Read more

I am on psychaitric medications haloperidol remeron (mirtazapine) and celexa. Should I get better everyday the more I tak the medicine?

There is no 'should': Certainly not day by day will you see changes. If you work with the doctors and a therapist and the medications are right for you, you will improve. But it may have ups and downs and may plateau at times. It's not only the pill - it's what you do too. Talk to you doctor about how to manage your expectations - don't let yourself be disappointed. Be hopeful, but realistic. Best wishes! ...Read more
