THANK U :)
Need physician. : Paxil (paroxetine) has to be taper down gradually first. And u have to discuss with your psychiatrist about side effect and benefit of wellbutrin first. It's not what is equivalent dose but most important is how much you needs it and why you needs it . It is not wise to change without physician guidance. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
I was prescribed Wellbutrin SR 150 and it is helping, but am so scared that I will have a seizure. I'm considering quitting. How common is this?
Each medication or treatment has some risks and you need to balance the risk and benefit. If the medication is helping you with depression, you should continue taking it. You may adjust the dose after discussing it with your doctor.
You may consult this site for information on the drug:
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, if you have sex. ...Read more
Is it safe to take wellbutrin sr and Xanax (alprazolam) together daily and can I take them at the same time? I'm also worried about my seizures. Will i be ok?
Yes: Wellbutrin, is a commonly prescribed antidepressant, now gone generic due to age. Xanax (alprazolam) is also "well aged" and is available in the generic form Alprazolam wellbutrin, as is the case with all rx drugs, must report every possible side effect. Dont read the package insert and follow your drs advise. The combination should be fine and work well. My advise is to not read the package insert, . ...Read moreSee 3 more doctor answers

I'm on day 7 of taking wellbutrin (bupropion) 150 XL and have intolerable nausea half of the day (unable to work). What is the duration of this side effect?
Yes: I have had several patients report ringing in their ears or tinnitus that either began or worsened on wellbutrin (bupropion) and other antidepressants that seem to increase norepinephrine. It goes away when the med is stopped but you may not get the same benefit from other antidepressants. Adding a low dose of Klonopin sometimes helps. Tinnitus is associated with hearing loss, i advise a hearing test. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Just started taking Wellbutrin (bupropion) a few days ago and now experiencing uti symptoms. Is this a common side effect?
To some degree: Wellbutrin, (bupropion) in most cases, either decreases appetite or has no effect on it. The most important way to avoid weight gain is a healthy balanced diet and exercise. Celexa may increase appetite but it is the number of calories consumed and not spent daily is what causes the weight gain. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
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 moreSee 2 more doctor answers
Probably not: Remeron functions differently, compared to Zoloft (sertraline).(Technically, Alpha-2, 5HT2a, 5HT2c, 5HT3, H1 antagonist and 5HT1 agonist). It can counteract some aspects of Zoloft (sertraline); but it can't be relied on routinely to counteract the sexual side effects. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
