From this study (6 days ago):
Need seroquel for panic/anxiety/depression/bipolar, but it seems to bring significant nasal congestion. Can't fight it w/Afrin for more than a couple days or risk rebound nasal congestion although Afrin does bring relief. Using Sudafed PE with mixed results and often need Afrin to breathe through my nose. Often have feeling of diffculty swallowing although a recent endoscopy did notfind anything physical. Panic/anxiety most often in the evening/night which are moretolerable when I stand-up and move around. Coping with anxiety and swallowing issues at night often result in little sleep on many nights per week.

Female, 70 yrs old. Taking Welbutrin and Lexapro. Cannot fall or stay asleep at night even after taking many different sleep aids. Severe nasal congestion (snorting) adds to the problem. Seems to start up after trying to sleep for a few hours and does not stop. Anyone else?
From this study (1 week ago):
Psychiatrist is reducing Seroquel dosage and my depression is increasing. Reason for decrease is pre diabetic sugar levels, but diabetes is in my family.I read anti depressants can increase depression in bipolar 2 patients. The studies I've read shoe no clear answers. How do I decide? I am tired of being non functional.
From this study (2 weeks ago):
would modafinil be useful for severe apathy and chronic depression, and in combination with drugs above?

I'm a 20 year old female. I'm currently taking Wellbutrin for my depression and Seroquel for biolar disorder. I told my doctor about my extreme social anxiety that I experience being around people. Any sort of social gathering. I can't even go to school anymore. She prescribed Zoloft, but it was only after I asked her if she would prescribe me Xanax. I haven't started the Zoloft and I'm actually kind of scared to. I just don't know what kind of effect it will have on me. I don't want to take a lot of medication that is affecting my brain chemistry. But if I knew it was guaranteed to help me amongst my other medications I would take it. It's kind of a gamble and there are risks involved. Has anybody my age taken these meds, or know what the outcome is? Please reply me if you have any suggestions.
