Have tried pristiq, (desvenlafaxine) wellbutrin, paxil, celexa, effexor, lexapro, etc. With lithium, haliperidol &abilify. A couple improve mood. Still anxious!thoughts?
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
Bipolar 2 on 200mg seraquil, abilify, (aripiprazole) celexa , wellbutrin and lithium I am still so depressed and hard to fall asleep is it normal?
I am on Abilify (aripiprazole) 5mg 1x daily, citalopram 40mg 1x daily, topamax 25mg 2x daily, bupropion sr 150mg 2x daily. Having trouble with acid reflex. Ideas?
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 (aripiprazole) (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 (aripiprazole) 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

Possibly: Restlessness can refer to different experiences and can have many causes. One possibility is a state of anxiety or depression. But another possibility is that it is actually "akathisia," a certain kind of reslessness that can be a side effect of aripiprazole (Abilify). It can be hard to tell if this is the case, but your best bet would be to consult the prescribing doctor. ...Read more
Tried celexa, made anxiety worse, sister tried it, same reaction. She had success w/ wellbutrin (bupropion) said it works differently, could this help me?
NO: Usually people with anxiety D/O's are more sensitive to side effects. Antidepressants that modulate anxiety (Wellbutrin (bupropion) is not one of them) need to be started and up titration at much smaller dosages. I.e. Citalopram 50mg and in some people 2mg, then gradually medicine is tolerated better. Good luck and feel better. ...Read more
I stopped taking my medications over a month ago and have had no relapse, withdrawals, or any symptoms. How long until i can switch medications? I was previously on abilify, (aripiprazole) wellbutrin, and straterra.
It depends: If you stopped taking your medications a month ago, i hope this was a mutual decision between you and your physician. I don't know what conditions you were being treated for, since these medicines could be used in different ways. Conditions do not have to relapse immediately for you to be in danger of that possibility. Your doctor is the best person to answer your question. ...Read more

Combination of meds: Yes, they can. However, it's best to reduce the dose of citalopram to 20mg. citalopram and wellbutrin (bupropion) are in different classes thus they have different mechanisms of action. You can liken it to cream AND sugar in your coffee. ok with one or the other but maybe better with both. I do not recommend taking Phentermine under any circumstances. pls make sure to discuss all of this with your provider. ...Read more

My pdoc told me that interactions between Wellbutrin (bupropion) and Aripiprazole are nothing to worry in my case. But on the internet I read "major interaction".
Interactions: Drug interactions doesn't mean that two drugs shouldn't be taken together. It means they interact. Most commonly, and in this case, they refer to how they may influence each others' metabolism -- resulting in either a higher or lower lever. People vary in metablism of drugs. And, it means, as your doctor probably knows, that doses are incremented in small amounts and slowly, for safety. ...Read more

I have started to take Wellbutrin and I am on about day number 5, before this I was taking Celexa but got eased off of it but now my skin is in hives?
Depends: 6-week studies showed that adding Abilify (aripiprazole) to an antidepressant could improve symptoms of depression in as little as 1 to 2 weeks (versus an antidepressant alone). It will depend on how adequate are the doses of the antidepressant and abilify (aripiprazole). If it does not seem to be working to improve depression after 6 weeks then consult your prescriber. It takes time. I hope you experience a good outcome. ...Read more
To some degree: Wellbutrin, (bupropion) in most cases, either decreases appetite or has no effect on it. The most important way to avoid weight gain is a healthy balanced diet and exercise. Celexa may increase appetite but it is the number of calories consumed and not spent daily is what causes the weight gain. ...Read more

Been on Celexa 40 for months with no improvement in depression. Just added 75mg wellbutrin (bupropion) once a day and 40mg celexa every other day. Is this OK?
Been taking celexa 40 mg for 13 years. Dr recently wants me to add Abilify (aripiprazole) because it seems my depression is worse. Any side side effects from this ?

I have chronic pain throughout my body and feel foggy all the time. Can adding Abilify (aripiprazole) to my celexa 40 mg a day help clear my head and help with pain?
My doc has me on celexa and Wellbutrin (bupropion) XL for my anxiety. Is this a good combination? I've read that Wellbutrin (bupropion) can sometimes increase anxiety?
Work closely: This combo requires your provider to stay very involved since there is a higher risk for seizure side effects. But, if that's not a problem - it might be effective. Almost all psych meds seem to have as a possible side effect the very symptom complained of. It's a reason I urge trying talk therapy 1st - adding meds only if needed. Think about it, but don't just stop! Withdrawal's a real concern! ...Read more
