Can rispredal Zoloft Buspar (buspirone) Lower my Pressure because wheni I race The dose from 50 to 75mg Zoloft and 20 to 30 Buspar (buspirone) my pressure went down to 100/59?

Can rispredal Zoloft Buspar (buspirone) Lower my Pressure because wheni I race The dose from 50 to 75mg Zoloft and 20 to 30 Buspar (buspirone) my pressure went down to 100/59?

Possible: … but unlikely. A very mild decrease in blood pressure has been seen with some SSRIs, but your pressure of 100/59 suggests a greater effect than what is customarily seen. Neither buspirone or risperidone have been implicated in drops in blood pressure. Look for other reasons. ...Read more

How do I get off my depression meds? Zoloft and Buspar (buspirone)?

How do I get off my depression meds? Zoloft and Buspar (buspirone)?

Wrong question: The right question is how is your depression doing? If you were being treated for a first episode of major depression, the standard of care is to treat for 1-2 years (one year and if doing fine taper the meds over the next 3-6 months or longer). You also indicate you are a "moderate" drinker, which by definition you aren't. Safe drinking in a woman is ...Read more

I have panic disorder and my anxiety is killing me. Will this hurt baby? I'm 24w and 4d? I'm on Zoloft and Buspar (buspirone) and my OB knows they're not helping

Chronic anxiety can: Expose a fetus to excess glucocorticoids, which may cause enduring neuroendocrine changes. The effects on stress-related behaviors, emotions, and cognitive abilities in offspring from infancy through adulthood are well-documented, as are the ^ed risks of premature labor, low birthweight & low Apgar scores.

I'm 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 more

I have GAD I was on Zoloft Risperdal Buspar (buspirone) my doc he stop Zoloft and take wellbutrin is because of eerection prob is that ok won't bi anxious mor?

GAD and wellbutrin (bupropion): Wellbutrin (bupropion) is commonly prescribed to treat depression, as well as to help with smoking cessation (I see u smoke up to 2 ppd). It sounds like u discussed this plan with ur doc. Wellbutrin (bupropion) does not cause the sexual side effects that SSRIs can (can even be used to treat them). If ur worried that giving up Zoloft will lead to worsening GAD, give a call to ur doc so you can review the best plan 4 u :) ...Read more

What is safer for long term use and short term for all types of anxiety, benzodiazepines, paxil, zoloft, lexapro, buspar, (buspirone) or marijuana (used correctly)?

What is safer for long term use and short term for all types of anxiety, benzodiazepines, paxil, zoloft, lexapro, buspar, (buspirone) or marijuana (used correctly)?

Not benzo's.: Hello - long term use of benzodiazapines can lead to tolerance. Marijuana can cause marked psychiatric problems in some people including anxiety, psychosis & paranoia. Paxil can be used long -term but most of my patients have experienced more side effects with it then from Lexapro & zoloft. I see you are on Lexapro -it has an excellent side effect profile. Buspar (buspirone) is very safe for long-term use. ...Read more

Yes, safe.: Yes - can help. See that you take ativan. When taking ativan a person can usually feel "different" after taking it. Buspar (buspirone) is usually more subtle - it works by helping to decrease symptoms of anxiety & usually the person doesn't feel tangibly "different". It is a gem of a medication.

Can somebody take Cymbalta at low dose for pain in his back while Taking Zoloft 50mg and Buspar (buspirone) 20mg did this combination exist?

Can somebody take Cymbalta at low dose for pain in his back while Taking Zoloft 50mg and Buspar (buspirone) 20mg did this combination exist?

A bit unusual...: Duloxetine (Cymbalta) is an SNRI that enhances serotonin and norepinephrine. Sertraline (Zoloft) enhances only serotonin.

Duloxetine is approved for Generalized Anxiety Disorder, Major Depression and several forms of pain, and it seems to help a substantial portion of patients with their pain.

I am not sure why you would be on both sertraline and duloxetine, as their mechanisms are similar. ...Read more

I'm on Zoloft 50mg and Buspar (buspirone) 40mg can remeron bi add at 15mg for insomnia. Ther any interaction?

Increase zoloft (sertraline): Yes, serotonin syndrome with high blood pressure and seizures can be one risk. It is not a good idea to take two SSRI-type medications with similar mechanisms of action. It would be better to raise the dose of zoloft (sertraline), (sertraline) if it works for you. Zoloft (sertraline) is indicated for just about all anxiety disorders. If zoloft (sertraline) doesn't improve your symptoms, then it would be a good idea to see a specialist to switch. ...Read more

Difficult: You may feel anxious because of stopping the Buspar (buspirone) which treats anxiety. I usually think it's best to make only 1 medication change or adjustment if possible. That makes it easier to figure out what the adjustment did and why. Follow up with your psychiatrist. ...Read more
