My Dr. added 50mg Pristiq 50mg due to the severe depression I couldn't stop. He also added Lamictal 100mg and Abilify 5mg also which I stopped 4 days ago due to the horror stories I read about it. I really need to know if Wellbutrin and Pristiq is a good combination. Thank you for your help.

I've been on Pristiq for about three weeks. I am on 50mg. and so far have experienced dizziness. Will that go away in time? I have yet to see it affect my depression and anxiety. I am on Zydis or Zyprexa for anxiety which works pretty well. Betsy

A few months ago I was switched from Paxil to Wellbutrin due to extreme sadness, but worse than that, complete lack of motivation, both at home and at work. My doctor suggested Pristiq but since it has a much higher co-pay than Wellbutrin, we decided to try Wellbutrin first. For the first 8 weeks ...
