I've been on many antianxiety meds and have always ended up with more anxiety. I take Wellbutrin since 2002 (which is more of an antidepressant) but it was the only med that agreed with me. It also helped me quit smoking. Anyway, my body is so immuned to the Wellbutrin (buproprion) that lately my anxiety has been going through the roof. My doctor has tried paxil, celexa, gabapentin, buspar, and about 10 other meds. I just end up with more anxiety.
I remembered when I tried Zoloft (another antidepressant) that it worked well for me except I had sever diarrhea.
So, thinking maybe I should be on an antidepressant instead of an antianxiety med I called the pharmacy to see if Mirtazapine would interfere with my buproprion and he said they actually work well together. (NO GIVING ME ORDERS PLEASE)
Last night I took a half (7,5 mg) of my husband's Mirtazapine and slept 10 straight hours. I can't remember the last time I got such good sleep. I'm feeling a bit refreshed today.
Anyone else have good results with this med for anxiety even though it's more for depression.
Again, no telling me I should consult my doctor. I consulted the pharmacist and he said it's O.K. He's the one I refer to anyway. Thank you!
