I usually post on the Ulcerative Colitis Forum but I have a question here-
I am on wellbutrin now and have been for the past 6 months or so to treat my depression which was onset by the last semester of college coming to an end and my fiance moving to Arizona (I live in Maryland). I was put on wellbutrin because of the low chances of sexual side effects and because it doesnt cause diahhrea as many others do (I dont need any more of the D since I have enough of that having UC) No problems with the sexual side effects, but my anxiety seems to have heightened. Is that normal?
So my doctor said why dont we try lexipro to help with anxiety- now for my questions
Is it common to have sexual side effects with lexipro either on low or high dosages? (I am getting married in January and dont want that to be a problem!) If the lexipro does cause diahhrea will it go away or is it a constant?
Thanks for all who helps
