Pristiq 150 Mg
That's what it's for: Wellbutrin or bupropion has been around for several decades, with many hundreds of thousands of people being helped with depression. It's success rate is about the same as other antidepressants (SSRIs and SNRIs) but it is in a different class, and lacks a lot of the same side effects. It is more energizing than sedating, and doesn't reduce sexual desire/performance as the others may. Works in 60% ...Read more

I am prescribed .50mg Xanax (alprazolam) 3/daily, 75mg Amitriptyline, and 50mg Trazadone. I'm 6'1, 232 male. Is this safe?
OVERLAPPING MEDS: The combo of Meds you are on looks like you are being treated for anxiety and depression . Xanax (alprazolam) is short acting for anxiety . Trazadone and amitriptyline are long acting for anxiety and depression but are very similar and both cause weight gain.. I would taper trazadone and start cymbalta. You need full lab work up including TFTS. Also a sleep study to rule out sleep apnea. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

Does Effexor (venlafaxine) XR make Concerta less effective? I take 112.5 mg and 108 mg, respectively.
Can taking lyrica (pregabalin) (150 mg) , trazadone (100 mg) and lexa pro (10 mg) cause CNS depression? Also what is it?
Meds and sad mood: None of the medications listed could cause depression individually or together. Depression represents sadness, lack of energy, probable sleep disruption and failure to find pleasure in pleasurable things. It has been liked to chemical imbalance which is often responsive to medications called anti depressants, including the lexapro you mentioned. Lyrica (pregabalin) is often used for pain, trazadone for sleep. ...Read more
Effexor (venlafaxine) 225mg hs, Neurontin 200mg bid, lisinopril 5mg ac, Prilosec 20mg ac, hydroxyzine 50mg hs, ativan .5 mg prn, too many rx's daily- liver damage?
Probably Not: Especially for someone who is young. Neurontin (gabapentin) doesn't even get metabolized by the liver. That being said, it makes sense to monitor you liver w/regular lab-work & to ask yourself if exercise, nutrition, & meditation can help your symptoms & reduce your pill burden. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
