Many meds: You've tried many meds already, although there are some you haven't mentioned that often help anxiety: buspirone, beta-blockers, other mood stabilizers besides lithium, etc. But after a person has tried so many medications and still has symptoms, i'd suggest non-medication approaches: psychotherapy, mindfulness, relaxation training, exercise/yoga, etc. ...Read more

Meds with food: Some of the meds you take may cause stomach upset, so it's good to take them with food. Some other ideas for reflux are to elevate the head of your bed slightly, not eat near bedtime, limit alcohol or NSAID use and consider a trial of a h2 blocker like ranitidine. If these do not help then consult with your practitioner for other causes like peptic ulcer or h.Pylori infection. ...Read more

Is Wellbutrin(100mg 2x/day), Fluoxetine(30mg) and Abilify (1mg, 2mg after a week) a safe combination for anxiety and depression?

Is Wellbutrin(100mg 2x/day), Fluoxetine(30mg) and Abilify (1mg, 2mg after a week) a safe combination for anxiety and depression?

Probably: Depending on yourneeds the combination seems reasonable. If the fluoxetine alone or in combination with wellbutrin doesn't remove/reduce depression, the addition of Abilify often helps. If, after a time this is not helpful... you didn't say you were in psychotherapy, but I would recommend it also. ...Read more

Can celexa 40 mg and wellbutrin 150 be taken together?

Combination of meds: Yes, they can. However, it's best to reduce the dose of citalopram to 20mg. citalopram and wellbutrin are in different classes thus they have different mechanisms of action.

I do not recommend taking Phentermine under any circumstances. pls make sure to discuss all of this with your provider. ...Read more
