I was taking 10 mg Celexa & 1 mg Clonazepam. I am lacking energy and motivation so I added WB 150 SR to the mix. I was Rxed the WB & Clonazepam by my Pdoc but stopped taking it because every day I felt worse. I know that I should of probably given it more time. So I got Celexa instead from my Pdoc. It's very hard to get in touch w/my doc so I decided to add on my own the WB 150 SR that I still had. I did the Drug Interaction on this site & it came back that there is a major interaction between Celexa & WB. However, it also says that there is a major action between Lex or Zoloft w/WB. I see that a lot of people combine WB & a SSRI. I have no Psych doc due to lousy insurance. Any advice about this cocktail? I am going to call my pharmacist. Yes, I know I should be under a doc's care, but I also know that it's trial & error. Thanks.
Wannabe; I have seen these taken together often But you must be careful you must also remember as hard as it is you must be patient both the Celexa and Wellbutrin are in the group of meds that most feel worse when they start them and that can last up to 2 weeks then slowly the side effects go away and you start to feel better the Celexa takes 4 weeks to reach its peak but the Wellbutrin Sr can take up to 6 to 8 weeks hope this helps any real problems call your doctor he or she should know you are taking both together. But it is pretty common. The Wellbutrin may help pick you up so your not so tired. and the Celexa is the one that most get so tired with. now be careful my friend. it's rare but its the serotonin syndrome that they could cause which happens very rare on the dose your on. and even higher but if you notice side effects getting worse after the two weeks call the doctor or go in. There has to be a way to get ahold of your doctor, my dear. that is crazy when we can get very upset at times. have a great weekend my friend
Wannabe; I am starting over here, can you tell me as of today, What all are you taking sorry but I'm getting confused and I think you know due to the chem.treatments my eyes are bad hopefully temp.I am thinking you Just started back on the Wellbutrin is it the Sr or xl and what mg are you on and I know your on Klonopin. There are many that don't cause the groggy feeling or is it the Celexa only and Klonopin im using the brand name but it's the same as generic easier to type and spell. But as you know we need to get you stable on 2 weeks strength on the Antidepressant my Partner is on the Celexa And has no tiredness at all anymore. it lasted for her about 2 weeks then just went away so we have to stay on the same one for at least that long, Then what is good about that one is it does not take as long to peak out as about all the others.4 weeks to have the blood level.Have you ever taken ZOLOFT OR PROZAC this is only a question don't think anything about it trust me if you take your medications regular we we'll know shortly which is going to work and you well be feeling better life is not going to stay the way you are feeling I also was a very hard person to find a medication that really helped me and that was at least 30 years ago when many of these were only a dream. Anyway dear, you need to refresh me tell me what you are taking and mg and how many times I am so sorry but my thinking is jumbled after my cancer check up.friday. I just want to give you the best advice as I CAN.and remember on top of medication I try to blow a lot of stuff off by working with my mind such as deep breathing, I am a very firm believer in thinking positive,use my faith and keep your sense of humor all good natural meds that are in all of us we just get to serious and can be our own worse enemy. Never beat yourself up for a mess up we can be our own worse enemy.If I'm being to confusing please let me know and we well try again. Just give me everything you are taking right now how many times a day and how long you have been on them as of the time you ANSWER ME. LOOKING FOWARD TO YOUR ANSWER. you have been very clear but it's kind of me I just want to make sure im seeing the right picture.chat with you soon and remember my private message does not work and my private message does not work on this website so make sure you post it and start with CHUCK that is what I pay attention to. hugs and you're going to be fine.chuck1957
