Can wellbutrin and Buspar (buspirone) and Risperdal togther Help GAD without take ssirs because of sexual side effects?
Yes, potentially: although I don't think I would put Risperdal into the mix unless there was concern about either some thought disorder (schizoaffective or schizotypal) or evidence of bipolar disorder. Buspar (buspirone) is effective, but often the dose has to be gradually upped to the 60-90 mg range. Sometimes Wellbutrin may make anxiety worse, particularly if it is immediate release. The extended release forms are better. ...Read more

SSRIs: These are medications that prevent the reuptake of serotonin, a chemical messenger that plays a role in brain activity including depression/anxiety. By doing this, the effective amount of serotonin available will increase. Adjustments take place over a period of time and that is why a person needs to take the medication daily for many weeks before effect is seen. Good luck! ...Read more

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.

Since each agent is different in its chemical structure and each of us reacts differently to any medication, not everyone will suffer this side effect with each medication.
