Wellbutrin XL vs bupropion sr side effects?

Wellbutrin XL vs bupropion sr side effects?

Buproprion: Bupropion sr and wellbutrin (bupropion) xl are two different products with the same active antidepressant drug (buproprion) but they differ in the delivery rate in our system: the sr (slow release) and the xl (extra long). In my clinical experience, they are very similar, and the difference in side effect is the sleeplessness that could result from taking the xl formulation. ...Read more

Can busbar pristiq (desvenlafaxine) or seroquel XR diazepam cause anger issues?

Can busbar pristiq (desvenlafaxine) or seroquel XR  diazepam cause anger issues?

Pristiq (desvenlafaxine) and Diazepam: Pristiq (desvenlafaxine) can cause anger issues by triggering mania or hypomania. Diazepam can cause anger issues by its disinhibiting properties in the frontal lobes. Buspar does not have this effect and neither does seroquel. Seroquel if anything has an anti-anger effect. Buspirone lessens anger by knocking out anxious irritability. Best wishes and have a happy new year. ...Read more

Lot of medications: I'm not sure whether these are all prescribed by the same physician? It sounds as though your bipolar disorder (from the additional info you supplied) may be quite hard to manage, and meds have been added but none removed. Perhaps you'd benefit from a second opinion about your case and possibly simplify your regimen. It could also be that your symptoms demand high intensity measures. ...Read more

Taking Lamictal, luvox, (fluvoxamine) risperdol and klonopin.  Can I take adderall?

If by doctor's order: If you're taking these medications on doctor's order then, I cannot tell you NOT to take either one of them or any of them. But if what you're asking is whether or not it's SAFE to take ADDERALL (dextroamphetamine and racemic amphetamine) with all the other medications or whether or not it's really NECESSARY for to take ADDERALL (dextroamphetamine and racemic amphetamine) given the rest of the drugs you're taking then, that discussion should really be with your prescribing doctor. ...Read more

Can you please compare/contrast Effexor (venlafaxine) XR vs. Wellbutrin xl?

Can you please compare/contrast Effexor (venlafaxine) XR vs. Wellbutrin xl?

Very different meds: Effexor (venlafaxine) xr works on serotonin and ne reuptake; wellbutrin xl works on ne and dopamine. Both are long-acting, and both work for depression. Effexor (venlafaxine) can help anxiety + depression; wellbutrin does nothing for anxiety. With wellbutrin the main dangerous side effect can be seizures; with Effexor (venlafaxine) it's possible hypertension. Sexual side effects with effexor; not so with wellbutrin. This isn't all! ...Read more

Which antidepressant drug has less sexual dysfunction side effects: Effexor (venlafaxine) XR or Prozac?

Which antidepressant drug has less sexual dysfunction side effects: Effexor (venlafaxine) XR or Prozac?

Hard to say: Both agents have sexual dysfunction as potential side effects. Around 20-30% of chances. It depends on individual susceptibility and also it varies upon the dose. So the lower the dose, less the risk . In my experience however, Effexor (venlafaxine) XR would be less prone to cause it than Prozac. ...Read more

10mg paxil (paroxetine). Pdoc wants me to switch to wellbutrin by starting at 75mg and taking 10mg Paxil (paroxetine) for 5 days then stop paxil (paroxetine). Need for Paxil (paroxetine) ween?

See a psychiatrist: I can only guess your medication is for depression. First of all I am clueless as to why your dose of Remeron is so low and every other night. Secondly i don't understand why you were coming off of just 10 mg of Paxil (paroxetine) which is rarely therapeutic. Thirdly, 75 mg of wellbutrin is too low as a starting dose. Find yourself a psychiatrist who will dose your meds properly with full remission from the depression as a goal. This will generally take 300 mg a day of wellbutrin.You can taper the Paxil (paroxetine) to 5 mg down from 10 and then stop it if you wish. That may help make any potential withdrawal more tolerable. Best wishes. ...Read more
