Wellbutrin, (bupropion) allergy meds, sinus meds, and booze? Bad combo?

The risk of seizures is higher combining heavy drinking + wb. Mixing WB with decongestants can cause agitation or anxiety. General rule is not to mix multiple drugs whenever possible, including alcohol. ...Read more

I take Prozac 20mg and wellbutrin (bupropion) XR 150mg once a day. Is it safe to take claritin-d for my allergies while on these meds?

Drug interactions: 1. Prozac and welbutrin (i think you mean xl) both potentially increase the level of claritin (loratadine). There should be normal liver enzymes on record as this is the mechanism that potentially causes problems.
2. There are other potential interactions between Prozac and welbutrin, especially with any seizures or head injury.
Discuss all with your doctor to be sure you are being safely monitored. ...Read more

Why does wellbutrin (bupropion) say to not consume alcohol if there is no drug interaction?

Why does wellbutrin (bupropion) say to not consume alcohol if there is no drug interaction?

Product Labels: Product labels are designed to ensure that people who use the medication are as safe as possible, also some of the labelling is based on the class of agent rather than on specific information about the medication. So, you will find that the don't consume alcohol warning is on almost every, if not every, psychotropic agent. General experience is that a glass of wine at night is fine. ...Read more

I'm taking 20mg of citalopram once a day and bupropion sr 150mg once every morning, is it ok to cold turkey these drugs n if not how?

Cital no, buprop yes: Stopping either or both of these should be done in consultation with your prescribing doctor. There may be less drastic dose adjustments and alternative treatments to consider, etc. However, to answer your question, bupropion usually can be stopped cold turkey, while citalopram is best decreased gradually to avoid discontinuation (withdrawal) syndrome. ...Read more

Is there any drug interactions between bupropion and piracetam?

Not reported: But piracetam is reported to increase the effects of amphetamines, and bupropion is actually a close amphetamine cousin and is chemically similar. You should not take medications your doctor doesn't know about. This drug isn't approved in us, so I can't find it on my usual interaction checkers. Your pharmacy should be able to find it if it is an approved drug in your country. ...Read more

Communicate: Before adding a supplement it is a good idea to communicate your intention to the prescribing physician. I am unaware of a specific interaction between this supplement and bupropion. Wellbutrin is not metabolized by cyp 1a2, which appears to be liver enzyme that can be affected by this supplement. ...Read more

Will a rash from wellbutrin (bupropion) go away? As my body gets used to the medication? Rash is minor and I started about a month ago drug is helping depression

Wellbutrin (bupropion) rash: Please tell your doctor immediately about the rash -- it may be an allergic response that will not go away. If there's any possibility other factors are involved (new laundry detergent? Exposure to other allergens? Etc) it can be confusing. I would call my doctor today and not repeat wellbutrin (bupropion) dosing until you speak with your doctor or the on-call physician. ...Read more

NO: You are being treated for bipolar disorder, and regular cannabis is bad enough in people with underlying psychiatric problems. The synthetics can be very bad, including causing death, seizures and psychosis in many people. You don't really know what you are getting. If your doctor isn't aware of your drug use, he or she needs to be. If you still feel sick, stop typing and go to your doctor. ...Read more

I'm taking 300mg of bupropion hydrochloride for depression, how will it mix with recreational drugs like cocaine or ketamine?

Bad Mixture: I am more concerned about mixing Cocaine and ketamine with your depression. In persons suffering from depression, recreational drug or alcohol use is not recommended. Bupropion and Cocaine lower a person's seizure threshold increasing one's risk of having a seizure. When using Cocaine and/or ketamine, one is less likely to make healthy lifestyle choices further worsening the depression. ...Read more
