I was wondering if anyone has tried this combination.. I'm kinda nervous about taking them.. I suffer from severe anxiety, racing thoughts and much more.. I just want to be me again..
I have taken Topamax and Effexor and Topamax and Wellbutrin at different times. I don't tolerate Effexor very well. I get fungal infections on my skin. If I was well established two of the drugs I would add the third one very slowly. If the the third drug is Topamax I would ramp up the dose much more slowly that the package recommends. If I wasn't taking any of them and my doctor hadn't given me any direction and depression was the worst problem I would start with Wellbutrin as it was the fastest acting for me unless you have bipolar problems. If I was worried about bipolar problems I would start with Topamax. Topamax is the one most likely to to stop the racing thoughts and and prevent manic attracts, but it takes the longest to get up to dose on.
Wellbutrin sent me into very mild hypomanic state the first time I took it. It was just a fun day, nothing serious.
Talk it over with your doctor and remind them the dosing ramp for Topamax is for seizures not psychic problems. Some people find Topamax hard to take if they ramp it very fast. The bright side is you will probably loose weight while your taking it.
