Adding Wellbutrin to Lexapro
I had a visit with my psychiatrist today who decided to add Wellbutrin SR to my daily dose of 15mg of Lexapro. I've been on Lexapro for about 6 months, and lately my depression has gotten worse, so she decided to start me with 50mg of Wellbutrin for the first 3 days and then to up it to 100 mg.
Starting tomorrow, I will be taking both meds in the mornings, instead of the evening when I was taking the Lexapro.
My request is for anyone who's been on Wellbutrin to let me know of their experiences, if they'd like to share. How did it work for you? Did it make you tired or give you more energy? Any side effects? Did it help with the depression? At what dosage?
Any response/input from my wonderful SASers will be greatly appreciated. Also, feel free to ask me about my RX past, which includes Paxil, Zoloft, Effexor, Lamictal, klonopin, xanax, and some others which I'd have to look up.
