Zoloft is just as frequently prescribed for anxiety and depression as is Paxil, so taking Zoloft again is probably a very good idea. You can add Buspar to the Zoloft to help with the anxiety, but why not wait and see if the Zoloft does it by itself...one less drug to take.
Also, the dexedrine increases the anxiety...so see if you can decrease the dose when you are feeling anxious.
If it will help any, I take zoloft, 25 mgs, for anxiety. And it has helped immensely. It does take time to take effect, but for me it is very helpful. I also had constant worryied thoughts, such as what if this or what if that would happen. Worrying over health. My loved ones safety since 9-11-01. I didn't want to travel much, either. Now since being on this since Jan. I see such a change. I have fun. I enjoy doing things now more that ever. I am less sensitive and much more patient. The obsessive worrying and thinking that any minute something will go wrong, is gone! If it takes taking one small pill daily for it to be that beneficial, so be it. I wish you luck.
Hello, I am an adult add and have been diagnosed with a frontal lobe problem. I am on ritalin and was on Depakote. I experienced bad side effects, depression, anger, hopeless thoughts. I am looking for a good combination to stabilize me. thanks
Hi I do take 150 mg of effexor daily and .5 mg of Klonipin 3 times a day as needed. I like the
klonipin because it stays in my body longer so I don't feel the need to take more, in fact I don't
take any until I actually start feeling those anxiety feelings. I love effexor only because I am a what
if Mom. I was such a mess worrying about my only child, and I drove the whole house crazy. After
effexor my worrying has dropped to almost 0. I may have a bad thought but it just rolls off my back.
Well I wouldn't do without it. I can tell you though that neither of these medications help my ADD.
In fact I am going to the Doc today, (wish me luck). I have to start taking a stimulant. My life is
so disorganized. Never finish household jobs, haven't cleaned out drawers for years. And I dread
doing anything and I to the point where I am giving up and it is really affecting my marriage. I took
Ritilan several years back when I was in college, but stop taking it afterward. Since then I have
had 5 jobs, stare at the tv, I don't take much in. There are two laundry baskets of folded clothes
on both sides of my chair a load in the washer for two days and one in the dryer. I know I am ADD
Doctors don't think women have ADD as much and misdiagnose sometimes. There is no going
back, it is my only hope. I hope you find the right meds. Maybe try Effexor XR for just a couple
months, you can always change. PS when I was a kid I was always the bad one, I really couldnt
function well., My son also was on ritilan in school. Good Luck,,,,,,,, May God Bless
