Hi Rianna, I’m sorry your having a worry about your meds...Remeron is a Tetracyclic so your physician isn’t going to want to pair it with the older Tricyclics due to a possible chemical clash. Wellbutrin and Effexor are SSRI's and would most likely give a good boost to the Remeron...this is why physicians typically stack the SSRI's on top of this class of medications. It is difficult to try to trust what your physician is doing, I know. But your very good about keeping yourself informed of these meds and just be sure that you ask lots of questions from your doctor before hand.
After working for a large mental health organization I can tell you that psychiatrists don’t get paid by the drug companies or drug reps to prescribe any of these medications. The most I have ever seen given out by the drug reps and drug companies is pens, note pads, book bags, sometimes if there was a training on that medication they would supply breakfast or lunch. Just small stuff like that.
Rianna, I'm not too sure where it is that you heard that Tardive Dyskensia can be a side effect of taking Effexor XR, but its not. I have double checked the NDR (nurse's drug reference), Mosby's Drug Guide, and Effexor's prescribing information and no where have I been able to find Tardive Dyskensia as a possible side effect. I am posting the link to Effexor's prescribing information below so you can read through it if you like. I understand your anxiety over starting new medications and the possibility if they will work and what are they going to do to your body. You may not have a medication coach but your doctor is very knowledgeable on these medications I am sure, plus you always have your pharmacist to go to and ask questions. We are always here for you also...
