I am diagnosed with adhd, ocd, anxiety and tourette syndrome. My current medications are ziprasidone 40 mg 1+0+3, atomoxetine 25 mg 2+0+0, viloxazine xr 100 mg (qelbree) 0+1+0, mirtazapine 30 mg 0+0+1, lexotanil 3 mg 0+0+2. I need to replace the ssri (mirtazapine) with a snri or a ssnri which induce sleep and should treat my adhd, ocd and anxiety. Can I add venlafaxine xr 75 mg to my this treatment plan? If so, when should I take it: morning, afternoon or at night? Can venlafaxine xr replace mirtazapine? I have inattentiveness/adhd, ocd depression, laughing fits, anxiety, insomnia (insomnia unless medications) and mood swings unless medications. I remain absent minded at times and have difficulty concentrating on studies and work. I am 39 years old male person. Married with no kids.

Mirtazapine (nassa not ssri) is far better in inducing sleep compared to venlafaxine. Venlafaxine is not superior to mirtazapine in treating adhd, ocd and anxiety. A ssri (e.g. Paroxetine, slight helpful in sleep induction too) would be a good choice if you want to shift from mirtazapine.
