Ophelia12 Posted April 6, 2012 Share Posted April 6, 2012 Hi all. *waves* I have GAD, OCD & Depression. I've just been seeing my pcp, but she's had to change my meds quite a lot due to not tolerating them (mostly ssri's) so I have an appointment with a psychiatrist on Monday. my doctor had recently switched me from Sertraline to a combo of Remeron & BusSpar. Since I'm seeing the psych very soon, I was just planning on waiting to see what she says. My previous routine was Sertaline 25 mg, Xanax 0.25 mg prn, Temazepam 15 mg (for insomnia) . Also, anti-nausea meds from Sertraline side effects. The routine she just changed me to is supposed to be Remeron 15 mg, BusSpar 30 mg, Xanax prn still. I'm guessing I wouldn't need the Temazepam. A pharmacist also advised me to wait due to a drug interaction between Buspar and Remeron. I'm looking for suggestions for possible meds/combos to discuss with the pdoc next week. I'm looking for something that will treat anxiety and depression (seperate meds is ok) without a lot of side effects. I've been taking additional meds just due to side effects and I don't much care for that. Even though I have insomnia, I don't so much want something that will make me feel sedated all the time. The Temazepam actually works great for helping me sleep at night. My pcp isn't crazy about me taking Xanax for very long. I don't know how this new doctor feels about benzos either. I don't tolerate ssri's very well at all. I've tried Citalopram and Sertraline. I would be willing to try something less activating. I've also tried Trazadone. I also have IBS-D, so if its something that tends to cause diarrhea, it's probably not a good option for me. Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
