Today is my first of the XL 150 mg. I've done research, asked some questions as a I didn't know everything to ask. I'm sensitive to all meds so the lowest dose to start is always best & usually works fine. Is this the lowest start dose because I've seen 75mg doses in reading about this med. I'm a lifer of depression. Also, I've taken Prozac for a couple of years and weened myself slowly but didn't tell my dr. Pharmacist doesn't recommend the 2 meds together but my dr, who is NOT a psychiatrist, says these 2 meds work well together in many ppl. I also take Klonipan for GAD as needed. I know everyone is different & meds affect us all differently, just looking for some positive & honest feedback. Anyone have seizures that never had any prior, lots of weight gain, use for anxiety? Any insight is appreciated! thx :)

The lowest dose for Bupropion is 75 mg. I have seen Bupropion and Fluoxetine being used together several times but of course every patient is different especially when it comes to anti depressants, its all about trial and error.
Kalm66; pharm; is right we are all different and they can work different I do not know what is up with that pharmacist. If you feel safer call your doctor or a pharmacist from another store this combination is used a lot for people that have the very common side effect of impotence no sexual drive, men, and woman. And also used to boost other antidepressants. Don't break the bupropion the xl means it is timed release if you want a lower dose you need to get more from the doctor but normal most don't have a big problem with the one you have because it is released little by little over a 24 hour period. Hope that will help. And sorry about the caps I can't see well due to the chemotherapy but if you can't understand me my answer is pretty much as the other. Sorry but my eyes are very bad. And I have to use the magnifier glass. Remember one more thing sometimes the first day or two can be harder on you until your system gets used to it. Good luck chuck1957
Yes, I take Sandoz Bupropion 150 mg sr with 40 mg of fluoxetine (prozac) in the morning and it is the best combination for depression I have ever found.
It evens out my mood and I feel less drained at the end of the day. I feel calm and in control. The prozac was not enough for me to feel even keeled. I researched the Bupropion and asked my doctor if I could try it. Now I feel like the best version of myself. No weight gain.
Hi, I take bupropion and prozac together
I take 150 of bupropion and 40mgs of prozac in the morning and another 100mg of bupropion at lunch time. It has been a good combination for me. I've had no weight gain of other side effects fortunately. But like it was said before everybody's chemistry is different. I had to work up to the doses I'm on also. Hope this was helpful and you feel better soon.
