Common Questions and Answers about Abilify and wellbutrin xl


1190024 tn?1264692022 I am taking 450 mg Wellbutrin with 40 mg. Lexapro and 10 mg. Abilify and I don't seem to have any particular side effects from the combination. I also take Zonegran, an anti-seizure drug that is used to treat neuropathic pain. My doctor gave me Xanax to take as needed, knowing the mixture that I already had. There doesn't seem to be a problem with that, either.

I have to work. Is there a better way?
Avatar m tn I was on effexor xr 75mg for about 4 years until it quit on me, I added wellbutrin XL 150mg and stayed on the effex. for another year and weaned off just the effex. I've been on the wellbutrin fro another 4 years and I was great until I had to take methylprednisone (steriod) and I went off the deep end. But if I hadn't taken the steriod, I would be fine.
Avatar n tn I've been on Wellbutrin for about 5 years and it's worked wonders for my depression. I also believe it's been a key factor in losing weight and maintaining my weight loss. During the first year and a half of taking it, I lost 30 pounds. Although I didn't necessarily feel less hungry, I felt like I had more energy and I was more in control of my impulsive behavior.
Avatar n tn I have been on Wellbutrin Xl tabs, 150mg for the last 5 months. I have been gaining weight and the doctor said that I probably would loose weight on this drug. I am going to stop the drug as I am not going to gain all this weight. Please let me know why this if happening?
Avatar m tn I took Abilify and Effexor (seperately) as well, Abilify was the last drug aimed at controling my largely depressive BP. It made me feel blah, less deeply depressed, but it gave me the rare side effect of blurred vision! It was taking a dosage of Effexor which gave me my first flamingly manic episode and caused me to be rediagnosed from severe depression to BP.
Avatar n tn I took wellbutrin XL 150 mg for several months. I gained 10 pounds and constantly craved sugar and sweets. Everything smelled very strong. It also greatly increased my sex drive. that was nice but I couldn't handle the weight gain. I just want to warn everyone that not everyone loses weight I didn't.
5050843 tn?1362873926 This definitely could be withdrawal from the Zoloft and not the Wellbutrin. Zoloft is an SSRI and Wellbutrin is an atypical antidepressant...it's hard to transition from one drug to another when they're not from the same "family." I did manage to transition from Abilify (an antipsychotic) to Wellbutrin last fall so it can done but it was a rough few weeks. If the symptoms don't seem to be easing up at all you should go back to your doctor.
Avatar f tn Have been going through withdrawal symptoms of Effexor XR and Wellbutrin XL. Anxiety., agitation, very angry. nausea, voimiting, diarrhea. Hurting all over. Unable to sleep,, very restless. Nervous. Worrying over everything. Mind has been wondering and very fast thoughts. Dizzy, low bood pressure. Back to Dr today. Restarted on Effexor XR 150 mg and Wellbutrin XL 150 mg daily. Will cut back on Effexor XR weekly til I get off of it.

Avatar f tn I live with major dpression/anxiety and am currently on Wellbutrin XL 400mg, Cymbalta 90 mg, Lexapro 10 mg, Repridal 10 mg and Xanax 3 mg and a couple of other non related meds. My doctor is trying to raise my energy level and simplify my meds. W ould ambilify help with energy? These seem like alot of meds to me,( my fomer doctor kept adding them as the depression did not get better). I am stable now but feel neither here nor there sort of emotionless. Any input would be appreciated.
Avatar n tn I am on seroquel and abilify, and so far they havent caused any weight gain for me, or weight loss! I was on geodon at one point to, but that was a nightmare! You will have to sit back, and see what happens. If you really dont want the weight gain, then exercising should definitely help! I cant say for sure either, what the result will be!
Avatar f tn I've been taking Wellbutrin 150mg XL once a day for over 2 weeks and while I'm fine in the morning, the depression sinks in later in the afternoon and all I want to do is eat cake, ice cream, sugary junk foods, and sleep. Why isn't the Wellbutrin keeping me "up" all day? Is craving sugary foods suggestive of serotonine deficiency? After I eat them I immediately get a jolt of energy and keep going but the problem is that I always overeat and already gained 10lb.
458139 tn?1334627036 I am taking wellbutrin xl 300mgr, lexapro 20mg, trileptal 300mg, ativan .5mg and for my hypo-thyroid, synthroid 50mg. Can anyone refer me to a therapist, psychiatrist and out-patient partial program that accepts Medicare Insurance. I live in Southern, California (Los Angeles County), Woodland Hills of the West San Fernando Valley. My mood has been depressed, since an increase in my lexapro from 15mg to 20mg, I am not crying as much.
Avatar f tn com/abilify/home/index.jsp . They also have some useful information on the disorder and how abilify works to help control moods. - it seems to have less side effects than some drugs of its type based on what I have read.
Avatar f tn I am on Wellbutrin XL, Ablify and Zoloft. I am still not doing better. Do you think they would put me on another Antidepressant also?

Avatar n tn Hi, I have been on Effexor XR for 3 years and I have gained about 40-50pounds, most when my dose was increased to 225, now I am on 75mg b/c I'm getting ready to wean off the medicine in a couple of weeks,and I haven't lost anything yet. My eating habits have not changed and I exercise. I have always been underweight and I could eat whatever I wanted...I'm only 26 years old...I know my metabolism has changed some, but not enough to pack on 40 pounds.

Avatar m tn I am currently on a combo of 100mg of wellbutrin, 75 of zoloft and 5mg of abilify and it is working great for me. I do get tired in the afternoon if I dont have something to keep me busy but nothing really bothersome. This combo is the best I have ever been on - I take the zoloft and wellbutrin in the am and the abilify at night. I hope you find something that works for you.
Avatar n tn I currently take 300 mg of Wellbutrin XL and now .25 of abilify. These successfully treat my depression and allow me to live a normal life. I am a moderate drinker, but consider myself an alcoholic and easily become intoxicated and do not have the ability at times to stop at one or two glasses of wine. I want to stop drinking alcohol to make my life even better and can't do it alone. So my md prescribed .5 mg klonipin. Because it makes me sleepy, I have cut the med in half.
Avatar f tn I'm cycling rapidly where one minute I'm ok, the next I'm sad, then I become very angry. I'm on Zoloft..been on lexapro and abilify at the same time and that combo caused me to have horrible suicidal thoughts. Any suggestions on medications that will really help stabilize my mood?
Avatar n tn heya, Glad I came across this community, enjoyed reading some of the posts, helpful info for sure. Currently I am taking Wellbutrin XL, topamax, Lamictal, and Xanax (for sleep) and have been feeling desperate on what to try next for my Bipolar. I started on meds over 10 years ago when I was "diagnosed" (although not told with that terminology", then put eventually on Seraquel, Zoloft, Prozac, Buspar, Celexa......
889551 tn?1416188083 He mentioned Strattera (but he said he didn't feel that it worked), Adderall, and Ritalin. I'm currently on abilify and wellbutrin for depression and these meds, along with adderall and ritalin lower the seizure threshold. I don't have seizures, but I'm a bit hesitant to take these meds together as there is a drug interaction between them. My questions is has Strattera worked for anyone here? And has anyone ever been on wellbutrin and adderall or ritalin?
Avatar n tn He gave me a week sample of the 30mg Cymbalta in order to wean myself off. He also have me (7) Wellbutrin XL 150mg and (7) Wellbutrin XL 300mg. This week coming down off of the Cymbalta has gradually gotten worse. I am extremely depressed at times (almost manic). I can't go to sleep when I need to (for which he prescribed me Lunesta). I guess I'm fighting it because I can't sleep still. Oh yeah--another thing--I have been taking Adderall (w/o a prescription) on and off since I was 18.
Avatar n tn I was taken off of that too. I WAS taking 900mg lithium, 300mg wellbutrin xl, 10mg lexapro and .5mg ativan daily. I was forgetting everything. I never really got settled into any perticular cocktail that worked for a long period of time. I was on this roller coaster ride since 1997. Check out Omega-3. good luck.
