Lexapro Trazodone Buspar Vistaril All Taken Together


My Dr. had me on lexapro and trazodone for my mood disorder and anxiety/ panic attacks. They didn't help with my panic attacks at all. So the next time I saw him he prescribed me vistaril and buspar. I was having severe panic attacks at least 3 times a day...Anytime I have to go into public my symptoms start. I haven't seen a big difference yet, even though I take the vistaril 3 times a day and the buspar twice a day and once a day for the lexapro and trazodone...does anyone have experience with all 4 of these meds? If so how long before I start experiencing some noticed improvement with my panic attacks?

I would not recommend taking Trazodone (or Nefazodone, it's cousin) if you have panic or anxiety.

I've take both in the past and experience intermittent worsening of panic and anxiety. This is most likely due to the m-CPP metabolite of both these drugs that are well known to cause these issues.

Hello, Jamie! How are you?

It could take about 4 to 6 weeks, before you know if they will help you, or not. You may also experience side effects, such as nausea, drowsiness, dry mouth, mood swings and weight changes.

As to what was mentioned by JB, that is a risk with most of these types of medications, actually. They sometimes cause the opposite of their intended effect.

Is there anything else I can help with?
