Common Questions and Answers about Adderall and wellbutrin xl


Avatar m tn 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 just like today it's gone back to waking up and wishing I hadn't at all. My mom has been on Welbutrin XL for a while and swears by it, which is why I decided to try it. She said she felt better almost immediately, but now it's been a week.
Avatar f tn Hi there - Yes, my doc spent over 1hr going over my medical history, doing blood work, EKG, and giving a physical. I only take 150 mg of Wellbutrin XL and don't plan on taking more. I also take Klonopin 1mg for anxiety and sleep, it helps to take the edge off the jitters that Adderall causes. I'm gonna ask him for something more "gentle" maybe Dexedrine XR Yesterday, I skipped the Adderall and had a totally worthless day (was Sunday anyway) but also felt more depressed then usual.
370801 tn?1264408618 My doctor gave me a perscription for severe depression but he wrote it for Wellbutrin XL 150 mg. The past 3 days I have been on the W XL and my mood has worsened to even worse than it was before taking Wellbutrin. I'm going to try and go back on the SR 100mg now and see if there is a difference.. My question is it possible that once version of the drug makes me more depressed while the other once makes me happier?
Avatar m tn It makes sense to me to not make any drastic lifestyle changes after starting a medication like wellbutrin. I take Wellbutrin XL, and have had no problems drinking while on the medication, but it may affect people differently so don't take my information as fact.
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 m tn Also, heard Wellbutrin and drinking don't mix very well. So between the Wellbutrin and my Rosacea, I guess my weekly beers are out for awhile :( FL: Don't think SAD is it. Think what's making me down is having to stay inside more than staying inside. I did buy one of those SAD lamps many winters ago but ended up returning it. SF: You're right. I posted the article but you picked out the "bending over" part :) You know, can't even remember what that article was about. LOL.
Avatar f tn Should I take the Wellbutrin every other day for a week and then stop? Ever since I started Adderall IR 10 mg for my ADHD all the depression and anxiety symptoms are gone... Thanks and Happy Holidays!
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'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 I am wondering if anyone has had experience with Adderall XR or Wellbutrin XL and Reflux symptoms? I started Wellbutrin about 6 months ago, and Adderall XR about 3-4 months ago. I finally feel like I have the side effects under control for the most part.
Avatar f tn Hello Ive been prescribed Adderall, Prozac, and Wellbutrin all by the same doctor. I started taking Adderall a month ago. Ive had ADD/ADHD since I was in grade school so this is not my first time taking a stimulant medication. I took Wellbutrin months ago when I fell into a deap depression. It helped alot even though I still felt like I was missing something. Anyways once I felt like I was out of the deap depression and the Wellbutrin was no longer doing much I stopped taking it.
Avatar f tn My doc gave me a prescription for Adderall 10mg and I took 5mg in the morning and felt great! However, took another 2.5mg before lunch - on an empty stomach and it gave me a horrendous panic attack! Heart was beating really fast, I got this rush of adrenaline, and felt like passing out so I quickly crushed and swallowed 0.25mg Klonopin, ate some food and it was OK. Is that this medicine has to be taken with food? I'm scared to take it again....
624695 tn?1221845309 Cocoa-Nilla Krispies w/ soy milk, multivitamin, 6oz Odwalla Green 10:00 am - 1 Norco, 10mg Zyrtec (took more because my allergies were particularly bad - also washed sweater & gloves to remove the cat hair, and used allergy eye drops) 10:45 am - Plain bagel w/ butter & sugar, Red Bull
Avatar f tn I have a real sensitive stomach and immune system, and am allergic to a lot so I would think that you can handle most of these. The best working were the Daytrana, Adderall XR, and Vyvanse, and the Adderall you are taking may be different than what I take(XR) The other Adderall hurt my stomach and made me sick if I didn't eat, but I have no problem with the XR.
Avatar f tn However, for at least a year now, I've been sleeping 12 to 14 hours on days when I don't have to be somewhere and can take a nap if I sleep 10 hours or less (sometimes more). I'm at my wit's end and have had lab tests for my thyroid, iron, B12 and Vitamin D and all came out normal (except the B12 was elevated). I also take thyroid medication and vitamin/mineral supplements daily.
Avatar m tn I developed a kidney stone and bladder issues from taking apmhetamine based stimulants, so currently off Vyvanse and Adderall. I'm trying to manage my symptoms by taking Wellbutrin XL 150 twice a day, and taking Tyrosine. We'll see how long it lasts....
Avatar m tn I know it isn't a foreign thing to a lot of people and I haven't really had a lot of problems with the combination, I just am trying to limit the amount of medications I have to take daily, which comes down to how much I pay for prescriptions monthly with insurance covering them already. I am on Adderall XR, Wellbutrin XL 300mg, Neurontin 600-1200mg, Vicodin 5-10mg, Lexapro 10mg, and Prozac 10mg.
329950 tn?1194801117 org/pdf/adhd_bipolar_disorder.pdf I personally take Wellbutrin XL for my ADHD, and when I am on the proper diet for me, I do great on it. I took Concerta a while back to treat the ADHD, and it gave me anxiety attacks. Wellbutrin XL isn't a stimulant medication like Concerta/Ritalin/Adderall, so it doesn't give me this problem.
Avatar n tn To sandratarium, keeponkeepingon, and kittykat3658 I was on Effexor (25mg/day) for 18 months, then successfully weaned myself off of it without pain, and after an 8-month slide back into depression while trying every natural remedy I had researched (none of which worked, contrary to all the glowing studies I had read about), I went back on it and have been using it without incident for the past 16 months.
Avatar n tn I almost started to cry at work and felt like I was losing it and going to have a breakdown. I called my doctor and left a message with his nurse. I'm on wellbutrin as well. On the YAZ pamphlet it says to talk to your doctor before taking this medicine if you have had depression. What does my obgyn know about depression??? I also have mitro-valve prolapse and it also states if you have heart valve problems not to take this pill. All I know how I felt in just two days is miserable.
Avatar n tn So i recommend the following combo to you. Mirtazapine before bedtime and Wellbutrin XL during the day to help with lethargy. you should not start taking both medications at the same time because it would be hard to know which one is causing a problem if there is a problem. Start with mirtazapine then if it works you can add Wellbutrin. You might even want to consider Adderall if Wellbutrin is not enough.
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 n tn Of all these meds, Wellbutrin XL has worked the best for me and I've taken it (or generic equivalent) for about ten years. About 5 years ago I was also diagnosed with Adult ADD and prescribed Adderall XR, which I find helpful in low doses; anything above 20 mg/daily brings unpleasant side effects. I don't really think I have ADD but the Adderall helps me get off the couch and function, so I take it.
766032 tn?1281645081 I take bupropion (Wellbutrin) but I take it for OCD/Anxiety. I believe I have undiagnosed ADD as well. For me it works well for my OCD/Anxiety. The ADD, well I have lived with that for so long that I think I have just found ways around the attention problems that I have so I can't really say that it helps or doesn't with that particular part of my life. If you have any specific questions about it, let me know and maybe I can give you a better answer.
Avatar n tn I've read in clincial literature that dopaminergic agents can affect T-hormone tests. Is it possible that the longtime medications I've taken, Wellbutrin and Adderall, both of which affect dopamine, might be skewing my tests numbers? ***PATIENT INFO*** Female, 41 History of depression (10+ years); Dx w/Adult ADD (~5 years); carpal tunnel (surgery, both hands); past history of anemia. Daily Rx meds: Wellbutrin-XL 30 mg; Adderall-XR 20 mg.
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 Hi, How are you? Are there other symptoms present? Try to apply a cold pack and see if the swelling or puffiness subsides. Otherwise, you may need to have this checked by your attending physician for proper evaluation. Direct clinical examination and your medical history are important. Take care and do keep us posted.
2164295 tn?1337023128 I lost my job in September of 2011, because I was having such difficulty getting up to go to work and staying awake at work. I have tried taking Wellbutrin XL for the cataplexy but I don't think it has really done much. I cannot change medications because I'm allergic to Nuvigil and Provigil. Any suggestions?
Avatar n tn Vyvanse is very similar to Adderal like the other poster said, but it is much smoother; not as much ups and downs throughout the day. Wellbutrin and strattera are non-stimulant options, but have a much lower success rates. If you're having trouble with amphetamine-type stimulants, you should next try a methylphenidate-type stimulant. Ritalin would be in that class. I first tried Adderal XR with an Adderal boost in the afternoon, then Vyvanse and now I'm on Daytrana.
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.
