Dosage is 20 mg ciprolex and 300 mg wellbutrin daily but every doctor or medical professional who learns of the dosage responds with "That (300 mg wellbutrin) seems really high." The only discernible result over time has been the predicted loss of interest in sex and the unreported (side) effect of being emotionally numb. There is no coming out of depression, just an indifference to life. Seems the only beneficiaries of this medication are the drug manufacturers and the doctors. Is it just me or is this a shared experience?
Side effects of Cipralex:
Difficulty in sleeping (insomnia)
Shaking, usually of the hands (tremor)
Disturbances of the gut such as diarrhoea, constipation, nausea, vomiting or abdominal pain
Alteration in taste
Inflammation of the sinuses (sinusitis)
Pain in the muscles and joints
Rash or itching
I would attribute the loss of interest in sex to that dosage of cipralex rather than the wellbutrin. Wellbutrin is often added to another med to counteract the sexual side effects of the antidepressants.The common dosages of wellbutrin are either 150mg or 300mg. Also, cipralex dosages are usually 10mg or 20mg. You might ask your doctor if an adjustment in either or both meds might help. A change in the dose might be all you need.
