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
I suffer from anxiety and depresion. Can i take Zoloft and pristiq (desvenlafaxine) along with xanax..
I'm old fashioned: I have a feeling that more and more people are self diagnosing and selecting the drugs the want to take. I'm almost always against this idea.

Didn't feel Lexapro (escitalopram) helped my anxiety, so Dr. added Buspirone. Can Buspirone can control anxiety by itself? I'd like to drop the Lexapro (escitalopram).
Medication effects: Thank you for informing about Canker sore, Hernia surgery and Colostomy. These stresses likely have caused Anxiety. Using with Lexapro can increase the risk of serious Serotonin Syndrome. It can be up to 2 weeks before Buspirone will work. Discuss with Psychiatrist •Decreasing and then discontinuing Lexapro •Therapy for stresses in your life •Ativan or Xanax (alprazolam) for Anxiety •Breathing Relaxation. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

I am on Lexapro (escitalopram) for some time now.I have excessive sweating and no sex drive.Would changing to remeron help and could I change without weaning Lexapro (escitalopram)
Answered before: I have answered this question before. Mirtazapine (Remeron) generally has fewer sexual side effects than escitalopram, however, mirtazapine can have other side effects that escitalopram does not have. Talk to your physician about switching and you and he/she can decide together. NEVER abruptly stop a psychiatric medication or try to taper/change medications except under a physician's care. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

XL Wellbutrin (bupropion): There is a lower incidence of decreased libido with wellbutrin (bupropion) VS. SSRIs such as zoloft- but it can occur. In respect to IR vs. XL, I would personally opt for the XL, as it keeps the levels of the drug more steady throughout the day. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Pexeva and zoloft (sertraline): The drugs that you are mentioning are of the same category called selective serotonin reuptake inhibitor. Although it is not usual to prescribe at the same time each practitioner uses clinical judgement to treat. Often such combinations can usually mean various things such as the patient is not responding, the wrong diagnosis is possible or the patient may be having another medical issue. ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers
