"that are safe"Can you guys name any medication combinations for social anxiety, and that are safe? For example mirtazapine + celexa. Name any that you know off. Thanks.
I would add in remeron with every SSRI as it has some properties that could make an SSRI more effective (zoloft for example may do nothing on its own but in combination with remeron it could start getting effective).Hey CrayzyMed,
I'm certainly no med expert, but I kind of want to avoid the whole 'Try this. No? Try this...' circus from my doc.
I just got Cipralex from my doc, and just switched from pristiq.
What would you say would be the best way to combine any of agomelatine, escitalopram, desvenlafaxine, mirtazapine and Klonopin (i think others on here said this was the best benzo)
Id really like to try mirtazapine, based on 'consumer reports' on this site, and agomelatine sounds promising as well
No i ment:The problem with mirtazapine (Remeron) is that it has a huge association with weight gain. For people with social anxiety, major weight gain may really impede a progress.
Escitalopram/desvenlafaxine seems like an unusual and potentially unsafe combination... what's your rationale here?
Zoloft + Wellbutrin would be a really good start, in my opinion. Wellbutrin is great for motivation, energy, and sociability that is so critical in treating social anxiety.
Agomelatine is only availeble in europe but you can order it from the internet. This was what i ment:Thx for the reply.
Yeah I think the Mirtazapine/Agomelatine one would be good, based on the little I've read. especially since my insomnia is getting a little rediculous, (se says at 4:30am). And the Klonopin for 'spot treatments'.
Any idea if agomelatine is released in canada? I would think if it was released in the US it would be released in canada, since im pretty sure health canada has a 'yeah, what he said' attitude, but i don't really know where to look for that kind of info.
desvenlafaxine + Mirtazepine + Klonopin + Wellbutrin has the potential to be pretty good but start with desvenlafaxine and mirtazepine and see where you go from there.Okay nevermind misunderstood. Yeah weight gain is non issue. in fact it would be welcomed (6' 143lbs). So how would you factor wellbutrin into that mix?
Lexapro + Wellbutrin XL in the morning, Remeron before bedtimeOkay nevermind misunderstood. Yeah weight gain is non issue. in fact it would be welcomed (6' 143lbs). So how would you factor wellbutrin into that mix?
Geez... I wonder what the doses are because an SSRI + a stimulant in somebody who's bipolar just seems to be begging for a manic episodeI don't know about social anxiety med combinations but here is my med combination for diagnosed bi polar
2nd generation anti psych - mood stabilization
SSRI - depression and SA
Benzo - anxiety
Id go with the first combination, an SNRI is better then a SSRI in my opinion.Cool thanks for the help guys, its really appreciated.
I did a three week stint in the pristiq, and didn't have any problem tolerating it. Also my dad really recommended it and there's something to be said for genetics. actually im not even sure why my doc switched me, he's a jacka**. When i got the pristiq he didn't even tell me when to take it. i want to switch to another doc that really good but hes booked till january. welcome to canada.
so, final question
pristiq + wellbutrin + rameron or
cipralex (im assuming this is more or less synonymous with lexapro) + wellbutrin + rameron
