Tried celexa, made anxiety worse, sister tried it, same reaction. She had success w/ wellbutrin (bupropion) said it works differently, could this help me?

Tried celexa, made anxiety worse, sister tried it, same reaction. She had success w/ wellbutrin (bupropion) said it works differently, could this help me?

Antidepressants that modulate anxiety (Wellbutrin (bupropion) is not one of them) need to be started and up titration at much smaller dosages. I.e. Citalopram 50mg and in some people 2mg, then gradually medicine is tolerated better. Good luck and feel better. ...Read more

Depression?), or what the adverse effect you experienced was. Check the instructions provided to you by the ER. They should indicate what meds to stop or continue, and when you should see ur prescribing doc. If you can't find these, ring the ER & your doc. Be Well! ...Read more

Which would be less likely to result in discontinuation syndrome: Wellbutrin + an SSRI or Effexor (venlafaxine) XR?

Which would be less likely to result in discontinuation syndrome:  Wellbutrin + an SSRI or Effexor (venlafaxine) XR?

If you're asking : about potential withdrawal symptoms, you need to call your PCP first. Otherwise you may not be feeling well if you do this cold turkey. Any of the SSRIs or antidepressants have this issue, if you've been taking it chronically for a long time. If you just started, this may not be as big of a problem. So call your doctor first. ...Read more
