Probably not good.: A fully informed answer can't be given, if only because "weed" is not standardized in the way that Wellbutrin (bupropion) and Zoloft are. But the concerns are: direct or indirect interference with the pharmacodynamics and phramcokinetics of the medicines; continuation of the underlying problems by virtue of avoidance or addiction. On the other hand, some people use it and still benefit from the meds ...Read more

Is Wellbutrin (bupropion) XL 150mg and Zoloft 50mg a safe combination to take? I've read a lot of mixed answers.
SHOULD BE OK:
This is not an unusual combination and is worth trying a
Zoloft is a selective serotonin reuptake inhibitor and Wellbutrin (bupropion) is a dopamine and norepinephrine reuptake blocker. So these two medications augment each other. The doses that you are trying are certainly conservative enough. ...Read more
My pdoc prescribed me wellbutrin (bupropion) and I take lithium and zoloft. What are the interactions when I take the meds? What should I expect?
Depends on dose: Zoloft and wellbutrin (bupropion) are moderate, dose-related inhibitors of cyp450 2d6 for which zoloft partly depends upon for its metabolism. Zoloft usually only inhibits 2d6 at higher doses (150-200mg). It might be worthy to be genotyped for this enzyme to assure you are an extensive metobolizer (em) type. Lithium is mostly excreted unchanged by kidneys. Please follow-up regularly with your doctor. ...Read more
Is there a link between Zoloft & wellbutrin (bupropion) to intrusive/obsessive thoughts and anxiety?
Not sure what: You are asking here. Zoloft and other SSRI's are often used in treatment of OCD. Wellbutrin (bupropion) is an antidepressant that is often used in treatment of atypical depressive symptoms. The medications can compliment each other well in treatment of some conditions — not necessarily OCD. Take care. ...Read more
I'm on Zoloft and gained 40 pounds so i'm on wellbutrin (bupropion) and Zoloft now. Will the wellbutrin (bupropion) help me lose weight?
See below: Weight gain is usually the end result of multiple contributory processes which can include untreated &/or treatment resistant mental health conditions (which themselves can influence unhealthy lifestyle behaviors). From a reductionistic perspective, wellbutrin (bupropion) as compared to zoloft may have a relatively lower likelihood of promoting weight gain (& may actually result in weight loss). ...Read more
Is Wellbutrin (bupropion) and Zoloft a commonly used combination these days? How do these meds interact with each other achieve therapeutic effects?
Accidentally skipped a dose of my zoloft, and now I feel kind of nauseous and anxious. Normal? Also, how is wellbutrin (bupropion) different from zoloft?
Yes; very different: First, abrupt discontinuation of zoloft (a ssri antidepressant) can lead to a variety of physical symptoms, including nausea; and possibly a return of some anxiety (if it was prescribed to treat anxiety). Wellbutrin (bupropion) is in a different chemical class — it works on norepinephrine and dopamine, and not serotonin. It is also an antidepressant but is not generally prescribed for anxiety conditions. ...Read more
Can y'all help me figure out a way to lose weight? I'm on Zoloft 75mg and wellbutrin (bupropion) 100 mg sr. I gained 45 pounds since I started. I need help!
I take Zoloft a.M. Plus wellbutrin 150 in the morning and at night. I travel a lot and cannot always obtain wellbutrin. Friends have advised effexor (venlafaxine).?
Do not listen : To friends. Effexxor and wellbutrin work on different parts of the brain. You can not substitue one for the other. If you miss a dose of wellbutrin you will not have ill effects of withdrawal. If you missed medications on several days of either zoloft or Effexor (venlafaxine) you would. You should stick with the wellbutrin especially if it is working with you. There is a vacation override to get enough for trav. ...Read more

Can Wellbutrin (bupropion) be taken simultaneously with Zoloft to eliminate difficulty orgasming side effect?
Yes: Zoloft (sertraline) can have an unfortunate side effect of anorgasmia. It is really unacceptable, but if Zoloft (sertraline) is helping, it is hard to give it up. It is a common practice among psychiatrists to prescribe a medicine to counteract that side effect, and buproprion is often a first choice. It is a safe combination, although the dose may have to be optimized. Experience says it often works. Good luck! ...Read more
Why did my dr perscribe wellbutrin and zoloft for depression and anxiety. How do they work together? Is there much success rate with this combo?
These two medications have different mechanisms of action and could have an additive effect without additive side effects. You should have posed the question to your doctor.
Exercise is a good treatment for depression. It is not easy getting started, but it is more than worth it.
For good health — Have a diet rich in fresh vegetables, fruits, whole grains, milk and milk products, nuts, beans, legumes, lentils and small amounts of lean meats. Avoid saturated fats. Drink enough water daily, so that your urine is mostly colorless. Exercise at least 150 minutes/week and increase the intensity of exercise gradually. Do not use tobacco, alcohol, weed or street drugs in any form.
Practice safe sex.

Is it safe to take over counter appitite suppressants if I'm taking low dosages of Zoloft and wellbutrin (bupropion)? I have no other medical issues
In short, No.: The otc supplements are likely stimulants (which will adversely affect your heart and even how well your antidepressants work) and made by companies that are unregulated by the fda. Eating differently and less is a start along with changing the amount you move. That's the long game to staying healthy. The short? Chew gum after lunch, drink water instead of soda, and eat a nutritious breakfast. ...Read more
Just started taking 150mL of wellbutrin (bupropion) 5 days ago(along with 25mg Zoloft), have been feeling weird the last 2 nights(anxiety, heavy head). Bad???
Initial reaction: It appears that you are experiencing an initial reaction to the norepinephrine and dopamine action, which is the basic pharmacologic effect of Wellbutrin (bupropion). It is advisable to start with the immediate release Bupropion, at 37.5 mg daily for about a week, increase to 75 mg and then the Wellbutrin (bupropion) XL 150 mg daily. If you also started the Zoloft recently, that could also cause some initial side effects ...Read more
