Is it true viibryd (vilazodone hydrochloride) causes seizures like wellbutrin does? I never had seizures bit don't want a medication that can cause one. How about brintellix?

Is it true viibryd (vilazodone hydrochloride) causes seizures like wellbutrin does?  I never had seizures bit don't want a medication that can cause one.   How about brintellix?

Viibryd (vilazodone hydrochloride) & seizures?: It's probably an oversimplification to say that viibryd (vilazodone hydrochloride) "causes" seizures. In some small percentage of the population, it can decrease seizure threshold. Although, it should be noted that most anti-depressants, albeit to widely varying degrees, decrease seizure threshold. The best thing to do is discuss your particular concerns & your risk/ benefit & side effect profile with your prescribing MD. ...Read more

I know wellbutrin raises risk for seizure.   Does viibryd (vilazodone hydrochloride) or brintellix cause seizures?   I do not have seizure disorder

You are correct: The data is not in on the new serotoneric agents with regard to lowering of the seizure threshold ( it took a while after Welbutrin's release that we noted the increased incidence of provoked seizures.). The other issues with all of these agents are possible precipitation of mania and seratonergic syndrome. ...Read more

Can celexa 40 mg and wellbutrin (bupropion) 150 be taken together?

Combination of meds: Yes, they can.

You can liken it to cream AND sugar in your coffee. ok with one or the other but maybe better with both.

Dr. Tom heston faafp, fasnc, facnm is it ok to take wellbutrin, pristiq, and savella (milnacipran) together?

I am not Dr Heston, : And in my opinion, that combination is very good as long as those medications work together to relieve the symptoms of depression, anxiety and chronic pain. When the illness is severe enough, combining several agents is more effective, causes less side effects, although it can be more costly and cumbersome to maintain the treatment. Hope this answer to your question while awaiting for dr heston's. ...Read more
