Yes: It is safe to take those three medications together as long as the they were prescribed by the provider, and the provider who prescribed them is aware of the potential for interactions.

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

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?

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

Tried celexa, made anxiety worse, sister tried it, same reaction. She had success w/ wellbutrin (bupropion) said it works differently, could this help me?

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.

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

Can celexa 40 mg and wellbutrin (bupropion) 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 (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
