My doctor is recommending wellbutrin.will it work as well with the depression and give me back my sex life. I also take buspirone during the day for anxiety.
*The atypical medication buproprion, also known by the brand name Wellbutrin, is less likely than the SSRIs to cause sexual dysfunction. It is often prescribed either alone or in addition to an SSRI medication when sexual side effects occur.*
So, Wellbutrin is an Atypical antidepressant while you've tried SSRIs/SSNRI's and is considered more neutral when it comes to libido ~ not that increases libido but it's less apt to interfere with it.
It's impossible to say how it will affect your depression because every drug affects each person differently but since you've had success with your other meds there's every reason to hope the Wellbutrin will work well too.
Good luck to you! WCV
