Wellbutrin and zoloft together

Common Questions and Answers about Wellbutrin and zoloft together

zoloft

I've never taken more than one psychotropic at a time, <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>and</span> am leery abt taking a lot of meds anyway. <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>zoloft</span> helped 5 years ago bring me out of my only major depressive episode (which lasted circa 4 months and resulted in my taking several months off from work). No hosp. No suicidal ideation. My Q: Is there literature or clinical/anecdotal evidence suggesting these two might work well in combination?
<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>zoloft</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>and</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>wellbutrin</span> are commonly prescribed together, and work well together. Whether one or the other is activating your Menier's disease is impossible for me to say. It would probably be best to stay on it a while longer to see what happens, or talk to your doctor again about what else might be activating your menier's disease. Sometimes just worrying about these symptoms makes them worse because you observe them so closely...see if you can backoff a bit from that and see what happens...r.
The response to Zoomergirl's question regarding <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>wellbutrin</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>and</span> buspar in combination is completely innacurate. <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>wellbutrin</span> works on the noradrenergic <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>and</span> dopaminergic system through modulation and reuptake inhibition, and does not work at all on the serotonergic system directly. In addition, it's effects are presynaptic, and not directly at the receptor level. Buspirone, by contrast, is a serotonin 1a receptor agonist, directly stimulating that receptor.
<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>wellbutrin</span> XL is once a day and the wellbutrin SR is twice a day. I was recently on the XL and I didn't loose any weight, I actually gained some. But thats just me, I have heard it works wonders for some people.
is it ok to take a combination of <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>zoloft</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>and</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>wellbutrin</span> sr? i am experiencing headaches and more so than normal fatigue during the day. i cant afford that!
My doctor said <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>zoloft</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>and</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>wellbutrin</span> are compatible I'm going to add per his advice 50mg of <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>zoloft</span> I really hope this will make some difference. Just like some feed back on this.
since I have been taking <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>zoloft</span> (four months). I consulted my prescribing dr. <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>and</span> my primary physician both claim that the <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>zoloft</span> should be weight neutral and that there is another cause for the weight loss...which has me more worried. I am the skinniest I have been since jr. high. Most of my clothes hang on me and people ask me what is wrong...I look sick, etc. I have had no other changes to my diet or exercise plan. The weight seems to be dropping faster than it did at first. Any insight?
Now my doc is having me take them both together in the morning. Would it be better to take the <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>wellbutrin</span> in the morning <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>and</span> the <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>zoloft</span> at night since zoloft seems to calm people. Your help is greatly appreciated and needed. Any advice you could give would help. Thanks.
I was wondering if taking <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>zoloft</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>and</span> zyban <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>together</span> is a bad idea? I've been a bad boy and have slipped back in my smoking habbit. I took wellbutrin XL two years ago to help me kick the habbit but i was not on zoloft at the time. I've been on zoloft for over a year now, I feel really good and don't want to stop it.
Thank you both for your wondeful suppot <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>and</span> the good advise.....I have looked up th paxil <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>and</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>wellbutrin</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>and</span> it has the same side effects together that I am going through.....I am making an appointment with my doctor and will have him refer me to a psychiarist , whom he sent me to once with anothr issur over a year ago!!!!!!!!!
I worry that if you try to get off the wellbutrin you could do more harm than good for yourself. I'm not sure if <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>zoloft</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>and</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>wellbutrin</span> mix well <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>together</span>, so without a dr. to monitor you and tell what needs to be done, you shouldn't try to get on one while getting off the other. and if you slowly decrease the wellbutrin, it's almost like taking nothing at all. I'm not sure about you, but more than 3 days without my meds--all hell breaks loose.(and i'm not kidding).
Now I'm back to battling between meds to see if I can feel anything. I tried <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>zoloft</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>and</span> I felt nothing - literally nothing. I couldn't be excited about anything, but I couldn't be too depressed about everything either. Now it's my first week of Welbutrin XL...started off at 150 and up until today I maintained that dose before taking another one with hopes to do something - ANYTHING. I've had a couple better days where I've woken up and actually felt okay about it.
but once the drug kicked in I could see clearly and was motivated to help my life move forward. Previous to taking <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>wellbutrin</span>, I tried Lexipro <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>and</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>zoloft</span> VERY briefly, but could not stand them. I felt more despair taking them. As I said, wellbutrin was a miracle drug for me.
I was starting to wonder if it better just to smoke weed instead of taking all these AD drugs, I mean I am a walking medicine cabinet and nothing really seems to be doing much anyway except hitting my wallet, I am on <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>wellbutrin</span>/topamax/<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>zoloft</span>/lunesta/klonopin <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>and</span> I still feel horribly depressed, i have tried so many different combinations, it does not seem to make a difference.
Do your own research, but apparently you can take both <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>together</span>. I have taken <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>wellbutrin</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>and</span> my husband does for bipolar (him) <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>and</span> we did not gain wt. on it. It just did not work for me, so I switched to Lexapro. It helped me in less than a week. I have been on it for several years and actually lost wt. while on it. I was actively trying to lose wt. and had no problems doing it while taking the Lexapro.
She also said since <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>wellbutrin</span> doesn't help with the anxiety problem that I could take both <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>zoloft</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>and</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>wellbutrin</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>together</span>. Now I know she's a doctor and I probably think I know more because I'm constantly reading stuff on the internet, but is that really safe? Has anybody out there been taking both and maybe has some advice. I mean it makes sense but it just seems like a lot of medicine to be taking. But then again I'm not a doctor.
I am thinking of getting off wellbutrin altogether but am not ready to start the weaning-off process without some alternative. Any advice or info on 5-HTP <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>and</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>wellbutrin</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>together</span> would be a tremendous help. Thanks so much!
My mother is currently taking 150mg of <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>wellbutrin</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>and</span> 200mg of <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>zoloft</span> on a daily basis. My question is "are these two drugs okay together?" She has suffered from anxiety for years and years.
and on the other comment, i am a nasty ***** right now...thats a reason for going on the <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>wellbutrin</span>. For months I was just up <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>and</span> down <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>and</span> up <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>and</span> down with emotions..lately i havent wanted to look at anyone, i havent wanted anyone to look at me (in fear that i might bite someones head off)i havent wanted to go out in public, afraid that everyone that sees me will think...what a horrible, ugly, fat person....although i know none of this is true, i cant help but to think it..
I also experienced some minor swelling of glands behind one ear and base of skull. My Dr. advised to stop <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>wellbutrin</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>and</span> within one week all itching <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>and</span> swelling had subsided. My question is: Can this itching be controlled by taking a antihistimine with Wellburtin and also could taking Pepcid AC (otc strength) with the wellbutrin play any part in causing the reaction? Thank you for any help you may have to offer.
Over the next 15 years I tried <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>zoloft</span>, Paxil, Lexapro, <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>and</span> several others. I always quit taking my meds because I never could feel as though they were doing anything, even though others around me said they could notice a difference..? Honestly, I don't feel "sad or blue" but I do have some s/s of depression. I'm more angry than "sad" and I have great anxiety and lots of stress. I have been taking xanax for about 3 years, and it seems like it's only thing that helps me.
Firstly, has anyone had success with <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>wellbutrin</span> for anxiety, as the medication doesn't mention anxiety in the information package. <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>and</span> secondly, should I wean off the paxil or stop all together?
The drug just made me tired, lethargic <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>and</span> lazy. I tapered off the <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>zoloft</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>and</span> quit all <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>together</span> in October <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>and</span> found that my lack of motivation did not return. I just started a new drug, Effexor, and hopefully that will help my motivation. In the meantime, I can tell you that if you are eating right, watching carbs and exercising...you are on the right plan. However, how do you define "eating right?
I just read your post about <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>wellbutrin</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>and</span> it seems I'm suffering the same side effects as you. I've tried effexor; I was taking wellbutrin and Effexor together for a quite a while up until a couple months ago. The side effects I experienced from Effexor were pretty bad - non-existant sexual libido, shaking, lethargy - which seem pretty common after reading about other people's experiences with it on forums and talking to my doctor.
Yes, I have hypothyroidism, and I have had no prior OCD tendancies. I will stay the course with <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>zoloft</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>and</span> thyroid replacement therapy <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>and</span> hope for slow improvement. Thanks!
I tried paxil years ago and it left me like a zombie.. I don't think the <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>zoloft</span> was as bad, but again that was years ago <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>and</span> very brief. I don't know what to do. Should I try Effexor? Would it be good for since wellbutrin seems to make me a bit high strung at times ( and then very relaxed and sleepy at others?) ... and also a little paranoid still? Hope I am making sense. Thanks.
During my vist her perscribed in addition to my antibiotics Welbutrin XL (150mg) <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>and</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>zoloft</span> (50mg)<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>and</span> stated that they would help me keep up with my very busy life- seemed great so I started taking them... I have since had no major side effects and really can't see much of a difference- my biggest concern is that to my knowledge I have never been diagnosed with depression, and can't say that despite my full and chaotic life I feel bad. Is there some other use for these medications?
Personally I am on Efexor and that works quite well for me. I have been on <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>zoloft</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>and</span> that didnt really do it for me. Now you say you're christian <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>and</span> that you can pray yourself through this. You can't. Depression is a disease. If you were to have a broken leg or a serious infection, you wouldnt pray yourself through it, you would go to the doctor and get treatment. Treat depression as a disease, it's not your fault that you have it, but you can treat it.
I told them at the ER, and they said 50mg is not enough to do any damage especially since I have not taken any other medications, <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>and</span> gave me a lecture <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>and</span> info on taking someone else's medications. <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>wellbutrin</span> is not an SSRI. My Regular Doctor said I should not take those since I had such an abnormal reaction. I just can't get it out of my head. I am starting to think it may be PTSD from taking the pill and LITERALLY felt like I was dying.
I've been on <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>zoloft</span> 100mg a day for a little over 5 years <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>and</span> I was wondering if it is possible that it can stop working. In the past year my psychiatrist of 2 years moved and retired so I've been seeing a normal physician for my medication. He took me down to 100mg a day on my Topamax which seems to work well for my headaches but I notice still a couple times a month I become depressed.
