I am taking a low dose of xanax (alprazolam) but lately feel depressed and crying. What antidepressant is ok. Tried both wellbutrin and prozac with bad side effect?
Can try others. SSRIs -sertraline, mirtazapine, citalopram, fluvoxamine, escitalopram SNRIs - duloxetine, venlafaxine, desvenlafaxine older group of TCAs, amitryptiline, imipramine, clomipramine, doxepin be sure you are staying with one drug long enough and the dose is up without causing side effects.
Tried ssri/xanax for depression/anxiety, bad reactions. I heard wellbutrin (bupropion) works on different brain chemicals than ssri's. Can wellbutrin (bupropion) help?
Wellbutrin (bupropion) Wellbutrin does work on different neurotransmitters than SSRI's - specifically norepinephrine and dopamine. That said, you mentioned using Xanax (alprazolam) in the past - and Wellbutrin does have an "activating" effect for many people. So, it's probably not the best option for you. I'd suggest seeing a psychiatrist to talk over all of the options available (sometimes dosing is the key). Good luck! Read more...
