I have been on the Wellbutrin for about 6 years for depression. I'm also taking Provigal. Recently, my doc prescribed Ambien (10mg) because my depression was getting worse due to some life circumstances and I wasn't sleeping. She felt I was sleep deprived. I've been taking it for about a week. Last couple nights, I haven't been falling right asleep and last night I felt like I dosed off and was dreaming but I couldn't breath, but I was really awake. I know sounds odd. My mouth was dry, I drank some water and laid in bed but my stomach had an excited feeling and my heart felt like it was racing and I had that "OMG" panicky feel. Can the combo of these drugs cause me to start having panic attacks?
I have been on Wellbutrin for at least 2 years. I suffer from insomnia, and lately it's been so bad that I won't sleep at all for at least two nights in a row, and then I'll crash the third day and sleep for 10 hours or more. Yesterday, my doctor prescribed me Ambien 10mg. It did nothing for me. I did manage to sleep for 3 hours, but woke right up at midnight like I'd slept 8 hours with no desire to go back to sleep. Around 7 a.m., I finally crashed again, and slept until 3 in the afternoon. Tonight I decided to try it again. Took it at 8:30, kind of dozed off maybe an hour later, slept very lightly for a few hours, and right at midnight I woke up. It's now 2:30 a.m. I decided to take two .5mg Klonopin with some wine about 45 minutes ago, and it hasn't kicked in. I feel like my heart is pumping so fast I could get on my elliptical for an hour straight. I don't wake up panicking, but I sure am annoyed as hell that it's not working.
