  1. Medication
    HI!!... I've been on Wellbutrin XL 300 mg for a long time. It has helped me with my depression, but certainly my social anxiety remains. So I've finally convinced my psychiatrist to start me on Nardil. What is the washout period while going off Wellbutrin to Nardil; is it 2 weeks?? I stopped...
  2. Medication
    I just started taking Wellbrutin XL to treat my anxiety. I'm still on the first month of medication. Previously I was on Lexapro for 3 months and put on weight, my doctor decided to make the switch as Wellbutrin has been associated with weight-loss. I am trying to understand the full affects...
  3. Medication
    Hi, I just joined this forum (surfed in from google, woohoo) and I was curious: I have mild depression. I never wanted to admit to having it until I realized it was really hurting me in college (about sophomore year)....I am now a senior. I've tried a few different drugs...Zoloft was the...
  4. Introductions and Welcomes
    Hi Everyone! I'm so glad I found you. I think it helps knowing I'm not alone trying to make sense of what we experience with Social Anxiety/Anxiety. Having bipolar disorder just adds to the problem--each one can trigger the other. Wellbutrin, Klonopin & prazosin are the drugs I am taking for...
  5. Medication
    I have been taking Paxil for a few years now and it helped a lot with anxiety but left me lacking in motivation and emotion, about a year ago i started on wellbutrin which helped with motivation/sexual side effects. About 2 months ago i was having trouble concentrating while doing homework so my...
  6. Medication
    I have the choice between staying on 150mg wellbutrin, which is causing me some anxiety, or trying the 6mg emsam patch. Is there a chance emsam would be less anxiogenic? which is more a more potent dopaminergic?
  7. Medication
    anyone tried this? I would think this would kick *** because neurontin increases dopamine production + gaba levels thus canceling out the anxiogenic effect wellbutrin has. right? I started this combo today without consulting my pdoc...so hopefully it works out so far so good :)
  8. Medication
    I've been on Wellbutrin for over 4 years straight (a few months ago, it switched to the generic version since my drug coverage changed). It was prescribed to me in a hospital for major depression when nothing else was working. After like 2 months of not being able to even get out of bed, I...
  9. The Work Place
    I just interviewed for a job that requires a secret security clearance for a company that does government contracting (i.e. military). For anyone who cares it is in the IT field, database administrator. The interview went well, I left feeling like I really had a chance to get the job. I'm...
  10. Medication
    I've suffered from GAD for most of my life and migraines for the last 14 years. Since getting on Buspiron I feel like my regular self again and my headaches have lessened dramatically. I'm a bit pissed though that it took so long for a solution. My wife and 3 boys have suffered too as a result...
