Brintellix And Wellbutrin Together
Advisable to take Wellbutrin (bupropion) 100sr along with 5mg brintellix? I know people take Wellbutrin (bupropion) with other ssris. Brintellix, however, isn't typical ssri
Caution: Wellbutrin (bupropion) + Brintellix interact to increase side effects of Brintellix and risk of 'serotonin syndrome' eg, confusion, increased heart rate, blood pressure changes. Discuss with prescribing doctor. This combination would require careful medical supervision. I hope this helps. Best wishes. ...Read more
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

Have read that Wellbutrin (bupropion) and Vyvanse cancel each others effectiveness out when prescribed together, any truth to this? Higher Vyvanse dose needed
Several risks: Several risky interactions exist in your mixture of medications. I doubt that increasing dosage of any is a good idea - especially w/o an expert evaluation of your conditions and needs. See a specialist ASAP. Don't play guessing games. Take care of yourself. Best wishes. ...Read more

Wellbutrin/Concerta: As prescribed, yes.Get a more detailed answer ›
Combination of meds: Yes, they can. However, it's best to reduce the dose of citalopram to 20mg. citalopram and wellbutrin (bupropion) are in different classes thus they have different mechanisms of action. You can liken it to cream AND sugar in your coffee. ok with one or the other but maybe better with both. I do not recommend taking Phentermine under any circumstances. pls make sure to discuss all of this with your provider. ...Read more
Interaction: Although these 2 can be used together safely, caution is needed with the doses. Wellbutrin can inhibit the metabolism of cymbalta, (duloxetine) causing its level to rise in your system. Seizures are possible if doses are too high also. Please discuss your concerns with your prescribing psychiatrist. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
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 moreSee 2 more doctor answers
