I'm on 450 mgs of Welbutrin XL and have been on it for about 3 years. About 8 months ago, I felt like it was popping out on me and my psychiatrist added Paziil. That worked great until I packed on 20 pounds in 6 months. I had to stop it.
She's recently added Prozac to the mix with the Wellbutrin. Does anyone have experience with this combo? I've got to have the energy to do something other than lay on the couch. I'm exhausted all the time
My psych says Prozac in low doses is weight neutral and has a lifting effect..
Anyone have any comments. I'm getting a bit frustrated,
Kismet; Yes your doctor is correct but as you know it can take up to a few weeks from the time you start the Paxil but it might even take a little longer if the doctor did or did not taper down off of the Prozac but your system is adjusting to all the changes but it should still be a few weeks from the time you started the Paxil and still the Welbutrin dose to start to feel some of those side effect these two meds are both kinds of weight neutral so you should not gain weight in most cases and to reach a full blood level of the Paxil it's about 6 to 8 weeks where they are working at their best. I hope this helps but for now, the tiredness is just temporary while you get used to the change in meds and this is like I said about 2 weeks give or take and some of your energy should be coming back. SOUNDS like you have a pretty good doctor willing to work with you but many people do very well on this combination of medication. Have a great weekend and feel free to come back and ask any other questions as you need to.Try and bear with it,should get better soon.chuck.
Really think most of it is right but you well know as you read it which were talking about it looks pretty clear to me now..break time hope your feeling better very soon it may not take as long because of how close these medications are is blood level..hope your energy is back some very soon.
