Wellbutrin and zoloft together

Common Questions and Answers about Wellbutrin and zoloft together


Avatar n tn I've never taken more than one psychotropic at a time, and am leery abt taking a lot of meds anyway. Zoloft 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?
Avatar m tn After taking Wellbutrin 150mg 2x daily and my Zoloft 100mg together fro the first time I woke disoriented and dizzy Just was wondering if I should of started the wellbutrin one a day to get used to it.
Avatar n tn Zoloft and Wellbutrin 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.
Avatar n tn The response to Zoomergirl's question regarding wellbutrin and buspar in combination is completely innacurate. Wellbutrin works on the noradrenergic and 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.
Avatar n tn Wellbutrin 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.
1756969 tn?1332440763 is it ok to take a combination of zoloft and wellbutrin sr? i am experiencing headaches and more so than normal fatigue during the day. i cant afford that!
Avatar m tn My doctor said zoloft and wellbutrin are compatible I'm going to add per his advice 50mg of zoloft I really hope this will make some difference. Just like some feed back on this.
Avatar n tn since I have been taking zoloft (four months). I consulted my prescribing dr. and my primary physician both claim that the zoloft 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?
20632981 tn?1503691167 This post suggests you're taking wellbutrin and Zoloft together and think the wellbutrin is working but not the Zoloft. See my response to your other post for my thoughts about this, but you do need to clear up the confusion as to what you're doing now so people here can help better.
Avatar f tn Now my doc is having me take them both together in the morning. Would it be better to take the Wellbutrin in the morning and the Zoloft at night since Zoloft seems to calm people. Your help is greatly appreciated and needed. Any advice you could give would help. Thanks.
Avatar n tn I was wondering if taking zoloft and zyban together 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.
Avatar f tn Thank you both for your wondeful suppot and the good advise.....I have looked up th paxil and wellbutrin and 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!!!!!!!!!
1756969 tn?1332440763 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 Zoloft and wellbutrin mix well together, 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).
Avatar m tn Now I'm back to battling between meds to see if I can feel anything. I tried Zoloft and 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.
Avatar n tn but once the drug kicked in I could see clearly and was motivated to help my life move forward. Previous to taking Wellbutrin, I tried Lexipro and Zoloft VERY briefly, but could not stand them. I felt more despair taking them. As I said, Wellbutrin was a miracle drug for me.
Avatar m tn Do your own research, but apparently you can take both together. I have taken Wellbutrin and my husband does for bipolar (him) and 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.
Avatar n tn She also said since Wellbutrin doesn't help with the anxiety problem that I could take both Zoloft and Wellbutrin together. 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.
Avatar n tn 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 and Wellbutrin together would be a tremendous help. Thanks so much!
Avatar n tn My mother is currently taking 150mg of Wellbutrin and 200mg of Zoloft on a daily basis. My question is "are these two drugs okay together?" She has suffered from anxiety for years and years.
Avatar n tn and on the other comment, i am a nasty ***** right now...thats a reason for going on the wellbutrin. For months I was just up and down and up and 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..
Avatar n tn I also experienced some minor swelling of glands behind one ear and base of skull. My Dr. advised to stop Wellbutrin and within one week all itching and 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.
1190024 tn?1264692022 Over the next 15 years I tried Zoloft, Paxil, Lexapro, and 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.
Avatar n tn Firstly, has anyone had success with Wellbutrin for anxiety, as the medication doesn't mention anxiety in the information package. And secondly, should I wean off the paxil or stop all together?
Avatar n tn The drug just made me tired, lethargic and lazy. I tapered off the Zoloft and quit all together in October and 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?
370801 tn?1264408618 I tried paxil years ago and it left me like a zombie.. I don't think the Zoloft was as bad, but again that was years ago and 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.
Avatar m tn Yes, I have hypothyroidism, and I have had no prior OCD tendancies. I will stay the course with Zoloft and thyroid replacement therapy and hope for slow improvement. Thanks!
Avatar n tn During my vist her perscribed in addition to my antibiotics Welbutrin XL (150mg) and Zoloft (50mg)and 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?
Avatar n tn I just read your post about Wellbutrin and 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.
Avatar n tn Personally I am on Efexor and that works quite well for me. I have been on zoloft and that didnt really do it for me. Now you say you're christian and 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.
Avatar m tn 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, and gave me a lecture and info on taking someone else's medications. Wellbutrin 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.
