Would Yaz (drospirenone and ethinyl estradiol) or Accutane be better to treat hormone related morderate-severe acne? Its mainly all pimples and black marks.

Im on Zoloft and Buspar (buspirone) and Risperdal for deeprassnt can Risperdal bi replace to remeron? For insomnia and anxiety and deeprassnt? ??
Different rationale.: The Buspar (buspirone) is often used for anxiety but it may take time for it to work. Zoloft is an antidepressant of the SSRI class , Risperdal is an antipsychotic but is used in small doses for severe anxiety. Remeron is an atypical antidepressant and is used more to stimulate appetite or improve your sleep. Please discuss this with your doctor. He has specific reasons for the use of each drug. ...Read moreSee 3 more doctor answers

Pcos, having acne, dermatologist prescribed me escitalopram along with doxycycline but I am not in depression then why this antidepressant? Why for acne
Ask for explanation: I'm surprised that a dermatologist would rx escitalopram / lexipro, as it is a psych medication. I'm not a psychiatrist or a dermatologist, but as a general physician i've got misgivings about writing for any psych rx without a plan that includes talk therapy and looking at your big life-picture. It's not a rx for acne. Further, an antibiotic should never be the sole rx for acne. Get a 2nd dr. ...Read more

Are adderal and Zoloft (sertraline) daily a good combination for for my add and my panic attacks?
No: In my opinion, Adderall could make anxiety worse, much worse in fact as anxiety is a common side effect of Adderall as well as all other stimulant medications like ritalin (methylphenidate). You may be much better off with a non-stimulant medication for add such as straterra. You must take the straterra with food to avoid stomach upset. Good question. ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers
I was on Zoloft 100mg for many years, helped with depression. Currently on 75mg of Effexor, (venlafaxine) helping with anxiety. Can i take them both together at lower dose to help with both Anxiety and Depression?
Consult psychiatrist: While this is possible, it must be done with great care or you will be at risk of serotonin syndrome, a very serious condition- see http://www.mayoclinic.org/diseases-conditions/serotonin-syndrome/basics/definition/con-20028946 Thus, DO NOT TRY THIS ON YOUR OWN! Find a psychiatrist who really knows psychopharmacology to work with. Possibly more Effexor (venlafaxine) without Zoloft may do the trick... ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

I get really oily and red on and around my nose. Im on yasmin (drospirenone and ethinyl estradiol) and have tried Accutane twice. Any suggestions to reduce sebum? Does metrogel work?
My doctor prescribed me with cymbalta (duloxetine). Will it cause acne and hair loss? I experienced those side effects with Wellbutrin XL.
It should not: If it does, it is worth the risk. Acne can be managed; usually topical benzoyl peroxide is sufficient. It's difficult to know what to make of accounts of sudden hair loss in people on this medication; emotional turmoil can do this to people. Even if it is real, it is a small price to pay for relief of the terrible, private pain for which this medicine is usually prescribed. Be brave and go ahead. ...Read more
I am taking a low dose of xanax (alprazolam) but lately feel depressed and crying..what antidepressant is ok.tried both wellbutrin and prozac with bad side effect?
Unanswerable: Xanax, (alprazolam) like all benzodiazepines, can increase symptoms of depression, although it is somewhat less likely to do that than other benzos in most people. This is a question for a psychiatrist or other mental health prescriber to answer, based on the kind of depression, its severity, exactly what side effects you had, how long you used them for and many other factors. Get advice in person, not online. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Im on Zoloft (sertraline) 50mg and Risperdal 0.25 for GAD can Risperdal work alone without zoloft (sertraline)?
Combination: At the very low dose of Risperdal you are taking is possible that the combination is what is making it more effective. You can discuss with your doctor, and suggest a trial. Since it is only a matter of trial and error, if it does not work, you will know for sure. ...Read more
