Hi Cam,

Might you be able to explain to me what an
agonist is? Does Klonopin (which i take) and
Buspar which the pdoc wanted me to take with
Wellbutrin activate serotonin? Meaning it realeases
more? I am trying to understand
more about the interplay between these drugs and
I don't know what agonist or antagonist mean.
No one seems to like Buspar and I would be willing
to give it a shot if I knew more and felt
better armed knowledge wise. The doctor said he
wanted to give me Buspar because I was having
difficulty making decisions and he thought I appeared
more agitated than usual. Buspar , I tried samples
and got headache, nausea and yawning, similar to
SSRI is it similar to that? Could Klonopin be better?
I have taken 0.5 during the day and klonopin does
calmme down when I am too anxious and I don't have
any side effects from klonopin. I am not anti-benzo
at all and they work, but I do notice a little memory
problem as of late (short term) and then I read it
can make depression worse.

If you have a moment to write I would appreciate it.
i don't understand allthis terminology and why
the mix would facilitate a positive response
according to my doc.

Thank you, Cam.

Paige
