Hi sleepylof, Welcome to healing well forum, we are happy to have you. I am so sorry for all you’re going through. Sometimes it does take a few trials and errors for the docs to find the right medication that is going to work for us...it is hard on our bodies and minds I know I have been there. You state that you have been prescribed Wellbutrin within the past few days and are not feeling any effects? I just wanted to say that most times it will take a few weeks for these medications to get into our systems and really start to work. Therapeutic level is 4-6 weeks so, hang in there and see if it doesn’t help any. If not, then most certainly talk to your doctor again. There are some people who are treatment resistant and for those who are it is very difficult. But you yet have many options open to you. Doctors can stack antidepressants to enhance the effects of the medications this is adding two antid's together.
I was wondering if you’re being prescribed these medications by a primary care doc or a psychiatrist? If you’re not seeing a psychiatrist I would highly recommend it as they are more knowledgeable on all these medications and the effects they could have.
In the meantime please know we are here for support to you...take care
