provide best chance for energy, motivation, and clear headedness? I take metoprol tartrate for blood pressure, and allegra for allergies. Taking paraxotine now, but never seem to have any energy or motivation. I was thinking wellbutrin might be best bet. Hopefully it will be something that a cheap generic is available for.
The real answer to this question is to ask your doctor. Be very honest with him/her because your doctor will be your partner in feeling better. I was diagnosed with anxiety years ago and diagnosed with bipolar eight years ago. I have tried a lot of different medications and have found what works for me. Good luck in your journey!!
Wellbutrin which does come in generic, bupropion, is a good adjunct to the Paxil your on. I took both Wellbutrin and another antidepressant for many years with great success. When the Wellbutrin was added I, too, was lacking motivation and clear-headedness. The Wellbutrin helped tremendously. We are all different and what works for one may not another, but discussing Wellbutrin with the doctor is an excellent idea.
Hi, reappr! Just be aware that antidepressants can sometimes cause Bipolars new, more frequent, or stronger hypomanic episodes, even full-blown manic phases.
It would be up to a Dr to prescribe what is best for you, your unique need after a thorough examination/diagfnosis, not every one of these works the same for all.
