I need some help. My pdoc has agreed to treat me with an antidepressant in combination with my Lamictal, just to lift me out of this major episode.
I started 150mg of Wellbutrin two weeks ago and having severe TMJ I am clenching even harder and more than before...I noticed that my jaw, neck hurt a lot more. When I looked up side effects, it does happen (the pain can intensify) On another forum someone said that after a few weeks, it would subside, but I have my appointment in two days with pdoc and when I tell him this I know he is going to take me off of it and I'm going to have to choose another antidepressant. My big concern is not only this pain, but weight gain....This is where I need some imput:
Starting my third week with the Wellbutrin, I wonder if the side effects will ease away?
If I have to choose another med, I am wondering about Celexa??? Any side effects experiences or positive effectiveness???
Any imput on either of these meds is greatly appreciated!
Thanks guys, hope you are all coping today
