Can Buspar, Savella and Ambien be taken while suffering from Parkinson s disease?

I have Drug-Induced-Parkinson s, caused by years of over-medication. For the last year I ve been on 100mg. Trazadone for sleep & 3 1/2mg. Clonazepam for anxiety/panic/PTSD. Now I have Fibro, increasing anxiety, & problems with Paroxysmal A-Fib; Dr. says I have to quit Trazadone because of a-fib, wants to put me on Buspar 10mg. x2 daily, Savella, Ambien for sleep. I am terrified; am having increasing Parkinson s symptoms from the meds I m already on. But have also been unstable.

You can safely continue all your routine drugs. It will not worsen your present disease condition.
