ive also been Rx'd amitryptiline(elavil)starting at 10mgs @ bedtime and over the years has been increased to 100mg in the course of about 4 years. what are some pros/cons between elavil and trazadone?
I would be more concerned with the interactions between the amitriptyline and prozac and amitriptyline and trazodone then I would be between the prozac and trazodone. I don't believe that the prozac with trazodone will offset eachother but there is risk of hyperstimulation of the brain stem and possible serotonin syndrome, which incidentally is rare. To read about possible interactions with these three medicines, click on the following:
I would be cautious and consult the doctor further on this combination of medicines.
I take (generic) Prozac, 80mgs 1x day at dinner time and Trazadone, 150mgs 1x day at bedtime. I also take (generic) Buspar, 20mgs 3x day.
This combination has worked very well for me with no problems. I'm a 35 year old male trapped in a 57 year old body. :-)
The Prozac is for my OCD/Depression, the Buspar for anxiety and the Trazadone is mainly so I sleep all night.
My daughter also suffers from anxiety and depression, for depression she was put on cymbalta it worked very well for a couple of years. She was on buspar for anxiety it work very well for about 2 yrs. her meds have to be changed usually after 2 years because it seems like they stop working for her
also I'm going to try the natural herb Passion Flower It was recommended to
me by her behavioral specialist check it out with your Dr. But it is not supposed to have any side effects and being all natural sounds good. My daughter is mentally handicapped which creates alot of anxiety for me. I am taking celexa it does not have any side effects for me. It is like it turns down the anxiety volume for me . but I'm also going to try the passion flower
Hope you find something to help.
