Wellbutrin And Memory Loss
I take Wellbutrin (bupropion) (450mg) for depression and Klonopin (.25mg) for anxiety daily. Is there a better drug for me? I'm concerned about memory loss.
What migraine med works best for someone weaning off topamax, (topiramate)w no weight gain or memory loss side effects etc? On trileptal, wellbutrin, neurontin, klon.
Topamax (topiramate) substitute for weekly migraines w/no weight gain&memory loss side effects? Tylenol, NSAIDs&neurontin don't work. On trileptal, klon, &wellbutrin now
Weekly migraine: Most people would not take a medicine every day to prevent a migraine that occurs once per week. Unless that migraine lasts several days. Substitutes for topamax (topiramate) could be propranolol, magnesium, or valproate perhaps. Normally wellbutrin and propranolol are not used together, in case the mood worsens. Why are you using trileptal? Your side effects may occur due to medicine interactions.
I'm on day 2 of wellbutrin (bupropion) sr 150 mg and experiencing brain fog and memory problems. Should I discontinue?
Seriously?: Talk to the doctor who prescribed the medication!
No: Wellbutrin (bupropion) does not affect your memory unless 1) you were very forgetful while depressed, and wellbutrin (bupropion) improves both your depression and your memory, or 2) you have a rare toxic reaction to wellbutrin (bupropion). In fact, wellbutrin (bupropion) is sometimes used to treat people with attention deficit disorder (add), and as such, could improve attention, comprehension, and memory.See 1 more doctor answer
Probably someone has: Wellbutrin (bupropion) is one of the few antidepressants that is considered to be "weight neutral, " causing neither weight loss or weight gain. Nevertheless, there is a small percentage of individuals taking bupropion chronically who lose (or gain) a modest amount of weight (probably < 5 lbs). Very rarely, bupropion has been associated with severe anorexia and marked weight loss.
Yes: Yes. Wellbutrin (bupropion) has been shown to help with weight loss in depressed patients. It helped to suppress appetite. You still need to be smart about food choices and maintain some level of physical activity. The weight loss was moderate. Some studies demonstrated up to 28% of people lost more than 5 lbs.See 1 more doctor answer
Does wellbutrin (bupropion) affect your memory? If so, does it cause permanent damage? I have been on it ~2 years and find my memory/learning impaired.
Yes: Weight loss is one side effect of the medication. It's being studied with other medications as a weight loss agent. Currently using this drug for weight loss is considered "off-labeled".See 1 more doctor answer
Loss of appetite: Weight loss can occur initially with well-controlled loss of appetite. Here are the statistics. Www. Ehealthme. Com/ds/wellbutrin (bupropion)+xl/loss+of+appetite could wellbutrin (bupropion) xl cause loss of appetite? We studied 10, 800 wellbutrin (bupropion) xl users from fda and social media. Among them, 100 have loss of appetite. See who they are. .. Remember that this is 100 people out of the 10, 800 who submitted complaints about side effects to the fda, this does not represent 100 of the total number of people who took the drug and it is likely to be in the millions. Therefore it can happen but the risk is very small. If it continues I would recommend to see your family doctor.
Yes: This is a good drug that can do both.
Welbutrin is an: Atypical antidepressant, often tried when SSRI's fail, or sometimes added to potentiate SSRI's. Both SSRI's and Welbutrin were initially touted as less likely to cause weight gain, unlike their predecessors the tricyclics. However, a lot of patients report weight gain with any of the antidepressants. You'll have to try Welbutrin and see, but the chances are statistically a little better...
If I go off topamax (topiramate) will I gain weight? Haven't noticed it causing any weight loss in yrs. Was 149 lbs on it (&celexa)but now on wellbutrin which helps!!
Likely outcome- no: Topamax (topiramate) may cause weight loss by several mechanisms, but it is not a very effective weight loss treatment. It appears you were not using it to manage weight. You did not experience weight changes with it. That helps predict the outcome. When you discontinue topamax, (topiramate) it is not likely you will gain weight.
Wellbutrin and topamax (topiramate) I have overweight 55 pounds. I need to loss weight ASAP. I have been depression and migrane. Can Use both of them same time? Safe
Yes you can,: Definitely. Very good combination because a common side effects of the topamax (topiramate) are loss of appetite, diarrhea, and weight loss. Also topamax (topiramate) is a prophylactic medication for migraine. Your doctor made a good choice adjusting your medications. Hope it helps.See 1 more doctor answer
Perhaps: Hair loss is not by any means common with bupropion (the generic name for wellbutrin). It is possible of course because people can have very unique responses to medication. Except for certain medications where this is often reported, the most common reason for hair loss in people taking psychiatric medications is stress.
