... combination? I have treatment resistant major depression. Nothing works very long.
I haven't taken either of these medicines but the links below have reviews/comments made by people who have used them ... not necessarily in conjunction. You may find the reviews helpful.
I was taking Wellbutrin XL 150mg but had to get off of it due to rage and anger issues being on the Wellbutrin. I lost weight on Wellbutrin and was motivated somewhat to get up and go to work. Now I am on 50mg Pristiq and I feel happy and my smile is back, but I have no motivation to get up in the morning or clean or do my work. I have also gained 10 lbs on the Pristiq. That is depressing me and the thought of gaining more weight is unacceptable.
I am thinking that maybe I get back on the Wellbutrin XL 150mg and the Pristiq 50mg daily for a balance.
How are you doing with this combination? Are you on it still? Did it work out for you?
Answering your question yes- people have been known to take it in combination with another antidepressants medication at a low dose. Just be careful...
When, I was on Pristiq for anxiety- I was put on a low dose of Wellbutrin to counteract sexual side effects.
One is and SSRI that builds the chemicals in your brain & the other is and SNRI helps the chemicals flow more than build in your brain.
Have you ever tried dealing? I did well with adding deplin it’s folic acid/a B vitamin it’s not like over the counter supplement it’s a little different & your doctor has to write a script for it.
