Please forgive me Gentlemen, but I have to ask the 'M' question.
I have recently started to take Prozac(10mg) in combination with Wellbutrin(150mg), I was weaned down to 20mg of Celexa before starting the Prozac.
Now I have only been on this cocktial for 10 days, but I am so anxious and moody(relativley happy one minute and then crying the next).
I have also been experiencing what I think are 'hotflashes', I just turned 39 and I am not sure if this 'hotflash' is coming from the Prozac, Wellbutrin or hormones.
My Psychiatrist said there is a 5% chance od hotflahes with Wellbutrin, but I have been on it for at least two years, so I would have thought if I was to experience sideeffects it would have been in the initial weeks of starting meds.
I also know that Wellbutrin causes an increase in perspiration, which I have managed to control with an over the counter anti-perspirant.
However since the onset of these 'hotflashes" I will perspire through three layers of clothing(I work in a frozen food manufacturing plant, so have to layer clothing), and the over the counter anti-perspirant is not doing a thing.
Then there is the rapid mood changes. One minute I am fine (although still experience anxiety) the next I am irritable, incapable of completing a small task(folding laundry becomes overwhelming), I burst into tears for no obvious reason, and find that if the T.V. is on, or the radio I get agitated, almost if there are too many stimuli and I just get overwhelmed by it all.
I guess my question is am I experiencing side effects from the medication change or am I experiencing menopause?
If anybody can shed some light on this I would really appreciate it. Thanks in advance.
