    #wellbutrin #prozac


    I just wanted to ask, has a prozac and wellbutrin combo worked well for anyone?

    Right now I'm on 40mg of prozac and on Friday my psychiatrist is going to add on wellbutrin to the combo.

    Prozac lately hasn't done anything for me, so I'm wondering if adding this will actually work. I've tried 3 different depression meds before this with no luck.

    Anyone who has taken Wellbutrin and stopped?

    I’ve been on Wellbutrin for a little over a year now, and I love it, but the career I want to go into doesn’t allow for this medication (FAA) and so I’ve been thinking about stopping it. Obviously I need to talk to my psychiatrist about this, but I just wanted to hear some first hand experiences. My biggest concern is weight gain if I were to stop, because I lost about 7-10lbs while on it and I’m really scared of gaining it back. So if there is anyone out there who has taken Wellbutrin and then stopped at any point, what was your experience like? #wellbutrin #Medication #help

    It’s been 3.5 weeks since I’ve started taking this and I’m still dealing with the problem of insomnia. I take 150 mg hcl xr in the morning. Anyone else experienced this?

    Can wellbutrin worsen suicidal ideation? #wellbutrin #Depression #Anxiety

    After a particularly rough few months I began taking wellbutrin to supplement with the Prozac I have been taking for years. After starting the wellbutrin I have found myself even more suicidal than before and my depression symptoms have worsened. Little appetite, insomnia, no motivation, that kind of thing but the suicidal ideation has been the worst. But my psychiatrist told me suicidal ideation is not a side effect of wellbutrin and something else must be the problem such as the Prozac not working effectively. I was just curious to see if anyone else had a similar reaction. Thank you.

    Wellbutrin vs Adderall

    I’m going to my primary physician this week in order to start medication (I have ADHD combined with unspecified depressive disorder and moderate anxious distress) because the psychiatrists around me aren’t currently taking new patients. The doctor said they would start me on adderall, but my therapist said to ask about Wellbutrin. Has anyone taken Wellbutrin, and if so, what was your experience like? Any information you have would be really helpful because this will be my first time on medication ever! #Medication #wellbutrin #Adderall #Depression #ADHD #Anxiety

    Wellbutrin as an add-on

    Does anyone take Effexor and Wellbutrin together? My Dr. added Wellbutrin to my effexor to maybe offset some of my cravings and weight gain. I haven’t tried it yet. I have taken Wellbutrin in the past by itself and it only made me angry and agitated. Wondering if it would do different though if taken with my effexor. Anyone have any experience with that?

    What works? The struggle of finding the right fit! #Antidepressant #wellbutrin #Effexor #cymbalta #Pristiq #GeneSight

    Ok. So I have been struggling with depression for years. The first time I tried mediation was when I was in my 30’s. I started with Wellbutrin SR. It worked so well for me. I was feeling good. Energetic. I was exercising. Lost weight. Then my mother passed away. It appeared maybe the medication hit a plateau. And yes I was forgetting to take it. Doctor RXed me XL version. Didn’t work anymore. Stopped taking it. My depression was manageable. I am a school counselor so I was practing what I preach.

    Breast cancer surprised me but caught just in time. And I opted for double masectomy. Had to take tamoxifen. Horrible pill. Wrecked havoc on my emotions. The only medicine I could take without countering with tamoxifen was Effexor. Worked great for awhile. Very strong. Had a bit of an euphoria for a short time. However, it dampened my libido - for lack of better words. 🤪 and then it stopped working for me. Quit that.

    Only recently before Covid happened, doctor suggested Cymbalta which would help with my anxiety, depression, and my back pains. I got the medicine but never started it. I managed to get my back taken care of. And until recently, with the ongoing stress at work. With my job. Students desperate for attention. Supporting teachers and administrators. The whole shebang with the election. Covid etc etc. Wow. I am starting to be forgetful. I can’t seem to get myself organized with the work load I nearly had a breakdown at work. And I have been an absolute terror at home. My poor partner has been on the brunt end of the stick. I feel horrible everyday. Doctor asked me about Cymbalta. I literally have a bottle of it waiting. I totally forgot about it. Told her my back is better. And she felt that maybe I should try Pristiq. And see if that will help me. But I am scared to try it for fear of finding out about the side effects or that it doesn’t work and having to go thru withdrawal all over again. You know. Should I go ahead and try it?

    Doctor did say for me to see if my insurance would cover Genesight. Anyone ever try that? It is suppose to analyze which medication is the best fit for you. What are your thoughts about that?

    Thanks for hearing me out. 💜💜
