I was taking Lexapro, but asked to try a new med due to fatigue and weight gain. Dr gave me Wellbutrin. Works well for depression, but I was still having problems with anxiety. Just added 5 mg Lexapro back. It's been a week and the side effects have really kicked in. Anxiety, no appetite, an insomnia. Since I have been through this before I know side effects usually stop. Just hoping it's worth it. Anyone had success with this combination?
Anyone have success on Wellbutrin and Lexapro together?

Newmed; Yes I have seen many do very well with this combination, Do your best to let these settle down and as you blood level reaches its peak you should be just fine. You might want to be aware the new one Wellbutrin or the generic are like a weight neutral zone of medications so watch yourself and make sure you are eating heath. But the anxiety should dissipate at anytime Best wishes.
I'm on the combination, along with Vyvanse. I've been through a lot of stress lately with a relocation, so although I'm not feeling where I want to be, I think it is helping me from losing it completely. I'm going to stick it out longer to see b/c I don't want to try new meds at this time. I'm finding this combination has less side effects for me.
