Used to be extremely strong until geodon (ziprasidone) risperdal celexa wellbutrin cogentin. Now body feels muscles are not supporting joints or strengthening body?

Go see your doctor: I can't tell if you're taking both Geodon (ziprasidone) & Risperdal at same time as these are both antipsychotics and can affect your muscle tone. Tell your prescribing physician (psychiatrist, right/) what's going on. You may need adjustment of dose and/or regimen. ...Read more

My doc has me on celexa and Wellbutrin (bupropion) XL for my anxiety. Is this a good combination? I've read that Wellbutrin (bupropion) can sometimes increase anxiety?

My doc has me on celexa and Wellbutrin (bupropion) XL  for my anxiety. Is this a good combination? I've read that Wellbutrin (bupropion) can sometimes increase anxiety?

Work closely: This combo requires your provider to stay very involved since there is a higher risk for seizure side effects. But, if that's not a problem - it might be effective. Almost all psych meds seem to have as a possible side effect the very symptom complained of. It's a reason I urge trying talk therapy 1st - adding meds only if needed. Think about it, but don't just stop! Withdrawal's a real concern! ...Read more

Yes & no: Yes, Celexa (citalopram) can sometimes causes changes to your menstrual cycle (http://www.Drugs.Com/sfx/celexa-side-effects.Html). Changes have also been noted w/wellbutrin (bupropion): http://www.Drugs.Com/sfx/wellbutrin-side-effects.Html.

Will i experience depression after a breast reduction? I have clinical depression, and i'm taking two anti-depressants (celexa and wellbutrin). I would like to have a breast reduction, but have heard that depression is common after the surgery. How likely

Will i experience depression after a breast reduction? I have clinical depression, and i'm taking two anti-depressants (celexa and wellbutrin). I would like to have a breast reduction, but have heard that depression is common after the surgery. How likely

Maybe: It sounds like you already experience depression, so that won't likely change after surgery. However, some women do feel a little "let down" after plastic surgery, during the healing process. It's good that you recognize that, as you'll be able to discuss it with your surgeon and be aware of the signs. ...Read more

I am on celexa for anxiety, wellbutrin (bupropion) for energy and desyrel for insomnia. I have increased sweating anything i can take to combat it?

I am on celexa for anxiety, wellbutrin (bupropion) for energy and desyrel for insomnia. I have increased sweating anything i can take to combat it?

Prescribing: Some people feel that a separate medication should be given to "combat" each symptom -- rather than investigating causes or seeing systemic inter-relationships. Is this maybe you? Excessive sweating can indicate issues with your medications (possible serotonin overload, for instance). Please work with your physician to review & deal with this, rather than automatically seeking another drug. ...Read more

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

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

I'm currently on celexa 40 mg and Wellbutrin (bupropion) XL  150 mg.  is it okay to take valerian as a supplement for anxiety?

Natural product: I assume you are doing well on Wellbutrin (bupropion) and Celexa, in appropriate therapeutic doses. Valerian is a natural product used for anxiety but most of all as a sleep aid. I don't believe there is any incompatibility if you do well with it. ...Read more
