Can you tell me about hydroxyzine or Xanax (alprazolam) for anxiety while taking wellbutrin for despression?

Can you tell me about hydroxyzine or Xanax (alprazolam) for anxiety while taking wellbutrin for despression?

These are ?'s: that you should be addressing to the physician who is prescribing the Wellbutrin. Also, bupropion is an "activating" antidepressant and may increase anxiety itself, so your doctor needs to know this is a problem for you. Hydroxyzine is an antihistamine that is mildly sedating and is ok for very occasional use. Your doctor needs to diagnose WHY you have anxiety to best treat it. I don't like Xanax (alprazolam). ...Read more

Xanax (alprazolam) vs anti-depressants for my social anxiety, which would you recommend?

What are the risk/benefits for atarax vs xanax (alprazolam) for anxiety?

Benzos: Atarax is an antihistamine, not my first choice for anxiety, it will make you tired though. Xanax is a benzodiazepine, which is effective for a panic attack, but long term use can lead to dependence/tolerance and possible abuse, while not effectively treating the underlying anxiety disorder. SSRIs like paxil (paroxetine) and zoloft are much better for long term treatment of anxiety, as well as psychotherapy. ...Read more

Can i substitute alprazolam for lorazepam?

Ask your doctor: While these are similar medicines, they are not the same thing. Alprazolam works a little faster, stops working sooner, and can be somewhat more addictive (although both carry this risk). The bottom line is that you shouldn't substitute any prescription med for another without consulting with the doctor(s) who prescribed them. ...Read more

What is the treatment for Xanax (alprazolam) withdrawal anxiety?

What is the treatment for Xanax (alprazolam) withdrawal anxiety?

Go very, very slowly: Xanax (alprazolam) is extremely addictive and it's half-life very short so you should decrease your dose very, very, very slowly to reduce the likelihood of experiencing withdrawal anxiety. To tide you through the difficult days/weeks ahead, try temporarily supplementing with another anti-anxiety drug (like klonopin) that has a longer half-life so that you don't then keep going into withdrawal. Good luck. ...Read more
