Okay so cardio doc prescribed Busiprone and LLMD prescribed EFfexor... anyone done either of these? Has anyone noticed blood pressure drop with either? I'm nervious to try either as i cannot afford to get any more NERVIOUS! lol or NUTS for that matter!!
Update on kidneys- blood test is fine-  no protein found in sample done by nephrologist- and a trace of protein found at LLMD- will just be monitering it for now!
I refuse to stay sick! Period.

was on effexor and missed a couple doses and got real sick with shakes and stuff was in bed for two days. Not sure about the other. All I know is that you don't want to stop cold turkey....especially with the effexor...hope this helps...

is buspirone another name for wellbutrin.? if so it's tuff on the liver. I'm trying SAMe now because it is good for liver. Also the only thing that works for my mood is pain meds. 5 mg oxy. so I try to be conscious of how much stuff I am shoving into my liver. even thought antidepressants take away pain too I always have other side effects but STILL am considering trying again too.
