Hi, my doc started me today on Wellbutrin. I am already taking 1mg of clonopin at night for anxiety and he wants me on this for depression. I have not heard alot about this drug, is there a reason its not very popular? Does anyone on here have good/bad experiences with it?

Thanks for the link! Good to hear it has worked well for you.

I thought it was supposed to make me more excitable but I feel extreeeeemely tired right now, could it be related?

Hi,
I read the same thing when I was on it. But I too became tired. If it continues after 4-6 weeks then contact your doctor and let them know.
Meds affect different people in different ways,so I think they list a million symptoms to try to cover everyone.


Good Luck and keep us posted.

Jenni,

I had been off and on 40mg Celexa alone for quite awhile to treat depression and although it significantly helped with my depression, it kind of left me "flat" and not the overall happy and energetic person I used to be.  It was prescribed by my family doctor when I first became depressed 6 years ago.  I recently decided to see an actual psychiatrist to see if I could improve my overall mental health and outlook.  He switched me to 20mg Lexapro (the effective isomer of Celexa) and added 150mg Wellbutrin SR to it.  I must say the results have been dramatic!   The Wellbutrin took away my lethargy and lack of motivation.  I am my old happy and energetic self again!

My understanding is that Celexa/Lexapro work primarily on seratonin and the Wellbutrin on dopamine...  That seems to be the combo that works for me.
