So I have an Ibanez RGD7421 (7 string), and I adjusted the truss rod to lower the strings closer to fret board, the problem is the bottom 3 strings have serious fret buzz on certain frets. Is it possible to adjust these 3 strings somehow to get rid of the buzz?

Issue right off the bat. That's not how you adjust the action. You do that at the bridge.

LTD MH-400
PRS SE Custom 24 (BKP C-Bomb/VHII)
ESP Horizon NT-7 (SD Full Shreds)
UA Apollo Twin Duo
Peavey Revalver 4, UAD Friedman BE100/DS40
Focal Alpha 65 monitors

You CAN play anything with anything....but some guitars sound right for some things, and not for others. Single coils sound retarded for metal, though those who are apeshit about harpsichord probably beg to differ.

Well part of your problem is that truss rod adjustment isn't to fix the action, but to take bow out of the neck.

Here is a thread in electric guitar that is about guitar setup. I'm sure someone can help you out there: https://www.ultimate-guitar.com/forum/showthread.php?t=602241&page=472&pp=20
