Yes, this is an appropriate combination if it is addressing her symptoms. If she suffers from anxiety/ depression and insomnia, she is being treated correctly.
Hi, vmarie! This is a link to a drug interactions report for you. There could be some very rare complications if not taken as directed under a doctor's supervision. Many (most?) of us take similar combinations and we do just fine.
Best wishes to you and your daughter! WCV
I am a little shocked the wellbutrin is in there, there really is no need with the other two. Prozac is usually stimulating (day time) while trazadone is calming (night time), so the 2 are commonly used together & I myself (33 yrs old) have been on that combo before. Vistaril is a VERY safe medicine, it is a class of antihistamine and is common for additional anxiety attacks. I would say this is a very normal combo except I see no place for the Wellbutrin being in there at all... it is such a weak antidepressant anyway but with many side effects... I don't see the point.
I have been seeing the most respected dr in bham and I was on the exact same meds and felt 100 percent better. Not knowing the dosage or more details such as is it working I would trust the dr and if you have concerns a pharmacist over the phone has always helped me w medication interactions and side effects. Best wishes you sound like you are an incredible mom your daughter is blessed to have such support:)
Hi. Many dr's combine Prozac (an SSRI-that increases serotonin, and helps with anxiety and depression), with Wellbutrin (that affects dopamine, and helps with depression and not anxiety. The reason for this is usually because Prozac decreases libido, and Wellbutrin is thought to increase libido, or at least cancel out the low orno libido side effect of Prozac. Trazadone is an old anti-depressant (Desyrel) that was proved not very effective for depression, but it's side effect (sedation), is used for those with insomnia. A trial of Vistaril is often used for anxiety and panic. I have been on all these meds and combination of meds (except Wellbutrin) for severe panic disorder/agoraphobia, generalized anxiety d/o, and insomnia. So except for Wellbutrin, my experience has been very successful. Prozac really worked well for me, but everyone is different. It would be helpful to know what your daughters symptoms/diagnoses are. Sounds safe to me.
