> I'm starting to feel real anxious. If I see my neighbors outside, I go upstairs in case (like this ever happens) they come to the door. It may be the wellbutrin I started with the geodon because I assumed geodon would make me sleepy. I think I'll switch to zoloft or stop taking an antidepressant and see what happens. We'll see.


i have heard more often that wellbutrin is responsible for triggering anxiety than geodon. welllbutrin is not the anti-anxiety agent that many of the SSRIs are.

geodon is supposed to be "activating" not sedating, perhaps you don't need the wellbutrin at all. this is why i generally experience insomnia rather than excessive sleepiness.

antipsychotics are supposed to suppress anxiety and paranoia, but everyone reacts differently. hence, the depression i experience with geodon ... i also take wellbutrin for it.

i wouldn't make any changes without consulting a doctor ... i have fallen in that trap before. please be careful.
