I have been on Lexapro for over a year now for severe anxiety and minor depression. a main cause of my anxiety is my weight (i lost 90 pounds a few years ago) and Lexapro is making me pack on the pounds- even with diet and exercise. I have also noticed I'm constantly tired, have no desire to do anything, and just generally feel blah. I am going to my doctor today and a close friend has advised me to try Wellbutrin. my question is if I should ask for it to be added to my Lexapro to help with side effects and increase mood, or just go off the Lexapro all together? any advice would be really appreciated. I feel like modern medicine doesn't have much more to offer me for me anxiety, ever SSRI I have tried has made me gain weight and no doctor will prescribe me a benzo.
