Lightbulb Klonopin + Wellbutrin = success

Well at least for me anyway. The klonopin takes away the anxiety and the wellbutrin gives me the energy to be social. Its a match made in heaven for me. The most effective anti-social anxiety cok-tail I've ever tried. If I take them alone, the klonopin makes me too apathetic, while the wellbutrin is too stimulating. Together, they have a perfect synergy. I've also never felt more focused then I do now. I guess you guys should give it a try.

ive been on both. Wellbutrin did nothing for me except lower my appetite.

I just began taking Wellbutrin at 300 mg for depression, how soon did you feel its effects I'm curious. for me it's only been the second day but I feel some side effects like a tightening feeling in my head causing a bit of a headache. From what I've read it seems to be effective for depression so I'm keeping my hopes up.

I would have to agree on how great the combination is... Have been taking the both together for 4 years now, used to just be wellbutrin. Yet, be careful about drinking alcohol bc I developed a drinking problem and didn't realize how dependent I became on Klonopin. Everything was all great for about 3 months, until I started crashing... I didn't realize how much the Klonopin was helping my hangovers (I never took more than my prescribed dose though)... takes the edge off in the morning after a heavy drinking night. Problem was my meds were regulated... drinking isn't. Developing a tolarance can be scary and really screw with your meds. I am not totally against drinking and realize that alot of my dependence was personal but just warning that alcohol seems like the perfect dessert to go with the klonopin/wellbutrin meal.

When you are on Wellbutrin + long-term Klonopin then drinking heavy is really dangerous, because of the increased risk of seizures. Also when you take Klonopin daily for a long time and are on Wellbutrin, never ever forget to take the Klonopin, because the benzo withdrawal is much harder / dangerous while on Wellbutrin.

I'm trying this as well. Welbrutrin is supposed to have less sexual side effects and not have any weight gain as other antidepressants do. I know Klonopin isnt safe for pregnancy but Welbrutrin is so that's a plus. I used to be on Paxil and thats a big no-no for pregnancy. So I'll give it a try. If it doesnt work at least I tried.

I am on the same. I actually went out for supper on Friday night, which is a HUGE step. I took a Klonopin before going out and I drank a beer with my meal. Big mistake! I crashed out within 20 minutes of coming home.

Would this be the same for lorazepam?

Yes most definetly..if not worse because klonopin has a long half-life and lorazepam doesn't so you get alot more rebounds with lorazepam but if taken right than their of similar caution but lorazepam for me caused withdrawals even when I took them right.

I take lorazepam 1mg nightly and usually 1/4-1/2mg in the morning. I definitely feel it when its starting to wear off. Thats why I've been considering clonazepam because it lasts much longer, right? Also, my pdoc wants me to take it every day because my anxiety is always high and I haven't been able to find an SSRI or anything else that works as well for anxiety. I also have physical anxiety (body tension, startle very easily, etc.).
