Are benzodiazepines + marijuana ever a reasonable option for control of anxiety and depression?
I'm a pain doctor, not a psychiatrist. Have a young male patient with profound anxiety. Seeing a psychiatrist and psychiatrist is prescribing xanax 1mg TID PRN + "medical" marijuana + atomoxetine 60mg Q24hr Is this considered an appropriate medication combination? Not my specialty and want some opinions. (Source: Student Doctor Network)

The worst polypharmacy
I may have a winner for worst polypharm ever. Young (early 20's) individual comes in after being hospitalized several times out of state after being hospitalized multiple times for anxiety and "ADD." He brought in his discharge paperwork that had his d/c meds, which included, Get this -- 2 Atypical AP's (I bet you can guess what one of them is) Strattera Adderall An SNRI Xanax Restoril Valium, and Tramadol "for pain" -- without any actual physical health conditions.
