Trazodone Stopped Working
What would happen if I stopped taking all prescribed medication? (Klonopin, Remeron, Welbutrin, cymbalta, (duloxetine) Qvar, singulair etc)
Do you mean stopping: cold turkey? If so, you could become very ill. Please don't do that. ...Read more
Been all sleep meds but they stop working pretty soon, tried trazadone worked at 400mg night, now seroquel (quetiapine) 100 and trazadone 25mg klonopin .5 safe?
Careful: Sleep medications may not be all they are cracked up to be. They often decrease deep sleep n3/rem and give you light (often nonrestorative sleep). If you are not seeing sleep specialist especially on all those medications, you should. These medications are all sedatives but none really fda approved for sleep. ...Read more

Seek CBT therapy: I hope you can find a good CBT therapist that you feel good with to help you as the search for an effective pill proceeds. If you find one, it will optimize the benefits and if not, it will do the best job for you. You'll learn how to handle things and manage the symptoms and understand yourself better. Best! ...Read more

10mg paxil (paroxetine). Pdoc wants me to switch to wellbutrin by starting at 75mg and taking 10mg Paxil (paroxetine) for 5 days then stop paxil (paroxetine). Need for Paxil (paroxetine) ween?
See a psychiatrist: I can only guess your medication is for depression. First of all I am clueless as to why your dose of Remeron is so low and every other night. Secondly i don't understand why you were coming off of just 10 mg of Paxil (paroxetine) which is rarely therapeutic. Thirdly, 75 mg of wellbutrin is too low as a starting dose. Find yourself a psychiatrist who will dose your meds properly with full remission from the depression as a goal. This will generally take 300 mg a day of wellbutrin.You can taper the Paxil (paroxetine) to 5 mg down from 10 and then stop it if you wish. That may help make any potential withdrawal more tolerable. Best wishes. ...Read more
Was on wellbutrin. Doc changed to Zoloft and lamictil. Bad mania. Zoloft gone. Added straterra & abilify (aripiprazole). Bad. Stopped. Now want help to wean lamictil
New Psychiatrist: Sounds like you have had a difficult time recently. And that you don't have a good therapeutic relationship with your psychiatrist if you are seeking help in managing your own medications here. Change psychiatrists and find one that you can work with. Your situation seems more complicated than simply how to stop a medication. ...Read more
Can i drink and/or smoke marijuana while on effexor (venlafaxine)? I switched from 200mg Zoloft to 75mg Effexor (venlafaxine) just yesterday for anxiety cuz Zoloft wasnt working
I switch from cymbalta (duloxetine) 90mg to Zoloft 50mg by tapering cymbalta (duloxetine) but after 10 dayes i finish my last 30 mg cymbalta (duloxetine) but i can't sleep even with trazadon?
May take longer. : Zoloft and Cymbalta (duloxetine) are actually very different from each other. Cymbalta (duloxetine) is very potent and works on two different receptors (serotonin ; norepinephrine ) and many people take longer to get off of it. Zoloft works mostly on one (receptor) and 50 mg is a low dose. Talk to your doctor about this. ...Read more
I want switch to Zoloft 50mg i start 25mg Zoloft and cymbalta (duloxetine) 60mg for 5 dayes then cymbalta (duloxetine) 30mg and Zoloft 50mg for 5 dayes then i stop cymbalta (duloxetine)?
No treatment Here: As earlier advised it is foolish to act as one's own doctor. Also the doctors on health tap do not provide treatment advice or prescriptions to our readers. You must do this change when appropriate under the care of the physician you see there in canada. ...Read more
Is it ok to stop pristiq (desvenlafaxine) 50mg abruptly and start 10mg of cipralex. I've only been on pristiq (desvenlafaxine) for 8 weeks. I took cipralex before that.
You can still get: discontinuation syndrome even if you start another antidepressant. Thus, recomend that Pristiq be tapered under medical supervision. Per Drugs.Com - discontinuation syndrome may occur when Pristiq is abruptly stopped & it can lead to dizziness, nausea, headache, irritability, insomnia, diarrhea, anxiety, fatigue, abnormal dreams, & hyperhidrosis.

Insomnia bad, i put on Prozac 10 mg and trazadone 50 mg. Taken 2 days. I was taking serqouel 50 mg & worked for a while but stopped working. Dr. Said stop seroquel (quetiapine) since given new meds, what do ido?
Maybe more trazodone: You have to talk to your doctor about what to do. We can't advise or treat you over the internet. But here's something to consider: seroquel (quetiapine) 50 mg is stronger than trazodone 50 mg. The latter is usually a better choice for insomnia, but the dose may need to go up. Prozac (fluoxetine) may help depression or anxiety that interferes with sleep, but it takes a few weeks to work. Good luck. ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers
My psych now has me on remeron, buspar, (buspirone) 30mgx2 Wellbutrin 300mg xl, Adderall 15mgx2 , and Ambien 10mg. I thought REM was a antidep?
Been taking zoloft (sertraline) 100mg recently started thinking girlfriend left me for good. Also take donezepil, should zoloft (sertraline) be switched?
Donezepezil + Zoloft (sertraline): I assume that the physician who prescribed the donezepil did not know you were on Zoloft (sertraline)? These drugs could interact leading to an increased effect of donepezil. This may or may not be OK for you. My advice to you is to inform both doctors that you are on both drugs and ask if it's OK or whether you should adjust one of the doses or even change the Zoloft (sertraline) to an alternate antidepressant. ...Read more
