It can happen with. Any antidepressant. We do not know why this happens. We also unfortunately do not have any comparative data on the antidepressants in this regard. Clinically i would say that I have seen Prozac last the longest without requiring change (unpublished data from my practice). We have two year data on Paxil (paroxetine) in this regard. When it happens, we augment or switch. Godt nytt år! Read more...

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...

If im taking paxil (paroxetine) 30mg at what dose of wellbutrin to reverse sexual side effect?

Talk to your doctor . You will have to discuss this with your doctor. Reversing sexual dysfunction associated with Paxil may require a reduction in your Paxil dose. I have prescribed Wellbutrin XL 150mg along with SSRI 's. Some cases require cessation of the SSRI. Augmentation with Buspar (buspirone) may help. Hope this helps. Read more...

I increased my wellbutrin from 75 to 150mg and lowered my Paxil (paroxetine) from 20 to 15mg. I don't feel like my sleep is restful anymore and I'm exhausted?

Dose or disorder? I hope that your dose changes are being done in close consultation with your physician, under his direct supervision. Dose changes made by a patient without doc knowing can be very dangerous. It may be the doses of your meds that are interfering with your sleep cycle, or it could be your underlying disorder, ? Depression, etc, that is interfering with sleep. Ask your doc for further guidance! Read more...
Dose timing. I agree with dr. Maes about making medication changes along with your physician, rather than all alone. What time are you taking your wellbutrin (bupropion)? It can be activating, and could disrupt your sleep if taken at bedtime. Please discuss any changes you want to make with your doctor -- s/he's there to be on your healing team with you. Read more...
