Im wondering what the side effects are and if they will help me with depression.
Yes, these two medications are prescribed for depression and are ok to take together. When you first begin taking one at a time you may notice some mild headache, nausea, and diarrhea which should subside in the first couple weeks. The Wellbutrin may cause some jitteriness in the beginning as well. Both these medications take upwards of a month to reach max effectiveness.
Something that you must remember all of these types of medication(s) come with lots of possible side effects. They dramatically vary from person to person (IE- one person may be done on Wellbutrin but another may experience dizziness & muscle cramps.. It is all the chemical makeup of your body).
They are great meds for depression, that being said, it's how your body will react to them.
When I was on Wellbutrin 400mg, I didn't experience any side effects, but that's my body. You might have some or none or a few. If you're looking for what type of side effects there are, you might want to check with your pharmacist, your psychiatrist, or I usually Google it/them.
