Common Questions and Answers about Zoloft vs wellbutrin forums

zoloft

Avatar n tn I have just switched from Zoloft to Wellbutrin because of the weight gain I experienced on the Zoloft. I have been on Wellbutrin for about 1 1/2 months but haven't noticed any weightloss (or weight gain). How long was it before you saw any changes?
Avatar n tn I also take zoloft. Can anyone recommend another anti-depressant; the zoloft keeps me awake I think. Anyway everyone here is right when they say xanax is not for long term use. I got to the point of taking 8-12mgs a day with little to no effect. I have a terrible tolerance and people need to not just trust their docs blindly. I have learned that lesson; you are responsible for your own well being. The kolonopin is a god send.
Avatar n tn I have tried everything in the book before finding effexor....paxil, prozac, wellbutrin, zoloft, and many others. I've heard taking effexor in the non controlled realease form (not xr) can help combat the night sweats. I had one of my primary care docs put me on hytrin, a blood pressure medication to try and counter the effects of the effexor that were causing my night sweats. any thoughts or advice would be greatly appreciated.

'' when u dont think clear at all.. well when im chocked or sad i turn out beeing pretty violent but i dont stay this way for a long time, only sometimes.
Avatar m tn About 4 years ago I was going through a tough time - a breakup of a 4 year relationship. Until that point, I was not a real emotional type of person. I had a demanding job and was going through the breakup. I found myself going through crying fits - VERY out of the norm for me. For the first time in my life started to ask myself if there was something wrong with me. I went to see my family doctor about the situation. I was "diagnosed" with depression and put on Wellbutrin and Lexapro.
Avatar f tn Thank you so much for your encouragement! I am beginning to feel like these symptoms will NEVER go away. I've been on other forums where I read of other people having MS-type symptoms that started a while after coming off the Effexor, but haven't been able to find anyone who followed up with when and if they ever felt normal again. Some people were a couple years out from coming off Effexor and still having the symptoms, so it's starting to scare me.

I will let everyone know how this all turns out!
Avatar n tn I take Epival and Wellbutrin. It helps. But sometimes, out of the blue, thereĀ“s me again. The hopeless one and the lonely one. Stay strong.
Avatar n tn Befoe going on Effexor, I had gained 20 from other antidpressants (Paxil, Zoloft, Celexa). Since beginning Effexor 1 year ago, I have gained a combined total of 53 pounds. AND YES I EXERCISE AND EAT HEALTHY! At one point I even got a trainer and still couldn't lose weight. I am afraid to go off Effexor because I'm convinced that I'm "A Lifer" as far as needing medication fro depression.
Avatar n tn Hi All, Thanks for this wonderful service! I have OCD, Panic Disorder & Social Anxiety. Without medication life is very uncomfortable. I was on Paxil for 6 months and all my symptoms were greatly relieved. However, the side effects began to outweigh the benefits. The side effects were: fatigue, nausea, headaches, loss of libido and inability to orgasm, weight gain and increased PMS.
Avatar n tn I also take zoloft and yasmin. Does anyone know if there is an increased risk for blood clots while on this, i tend to be a worrier and i just want to know from someone who knows whats up? thanks!
Avatar f tn I'm desperate to lose 40 lbs (half of which I gained on Zoloft-no longer taking). PLEASE respond if you had any weightloss on this drug, I'm very curious. THANK YOU THANK YOU THANK YOU!!!!!!!!!
Avatar n tn spend most time alone fucled on a large quinty of street drugs...god forgive me and let tjese forums educate someone so tjey dont end up like me a junkie who cuts himself so much he lost the use of two fingers...i hope god or someone helps you all...dont end up like me.
Avatar m tn I have tried a lot of the home remedies that most of the forums suggest, but none of them work. I'm talking about deep-diaphram breathing. I'm talking about telling yourself that you're ok and it will pass. I'm talking about laying flat on your back and just trying to chill out. I've tried reading. Nothing works. Even if the anxiety is in the back of my mind, it's still in there, waiting to creep out and make my life hell for the rest of the day.
Avatar n tn and unfortunately I have to stay on the hormones to control the endo pain. I started taking Wellbutrin XL a month ago to help a little with the mood swings I get from the 'menopause' but haven't had any luck losing weight on it. Any help or suggestions would be wonderful, thank you!!!
Avatar n tn JESUS CHRIST IS THE ONLY DOCTOR DELIVERER AND ANSWER TO YOU WHO CANT SEEM TO BREAK FREE FROM THE CUFFS YOUR IN HE UNCHAINED MINE. GET A BIBLE LOOK UP JOHN CHAPTER 3 VS 3 IN THE NEW TESTAMENT.THEN WHEN YOU FIND OUT YOU DONT HAVE THAT SCRIPT,ASK HIM FOR IT,A NEW BIRTH SPIRITUALLY,NOT A RELIGION BUT A RELATIONSHIP WITH THE ONE WHO CREATED YOU IN THE FIRST PLACE.JESUS IS GOD! NOT THE god OF AA NA CA WHICH CAN BE WHATEVER YOU WANT.....TOOTH FAIRY MONA LISA TREE IN YOUR YARD!
Avatar f tn (I had back surgery in 1981--seems too long ago to be a contributor) 2. medication for depression? (I take Zoloft and Trazidone and have for 15 years) 3. tanning beds? 4. stress?
Avatar n tn Keep an eye on what upsets you or look up on line about food combining and check PH foods vs acidic foods. Do some walking or light excercising and do not eat atleast 4-5 hours before bed. If your hungry have only a light protein snack. This even now is still a work in progress for me but I feel a lot better. I am trying to figure out whether getting this has caused what I suspect to be a succeptible area or pocket somewhere that may or may not heal with time?
Avatar m tn Hi, Oh my god, I had the EXACT same thing! (And I still don't understand it either. Sorry.) I'm a 49 year old woman, and I "rocked" my youth away, just like you're describing! There are probably millions of us out there, but we don't know about each other, because we like to do our body rocking in private. (I always made sure I locked my bedroom door, because it was mortifying to "get caught" rocking!
