I am bipolar or they think. I have had bouts of depression and I started taking garcinia cambogia and went up on wellbutrin at the same time . I sort of lost tract of time and wasn't acting right so I went off the wellbutrin. But I went back on because I started gaining weight without it. Is 75 mgs enough for depression?
Hi, j! It's not a good idea to mix Wellbutrin and garcinia as both affect serotonin levels in the brain which can cause unsual symptoms, or even lead to a very serious condition called serotonin syndrome which can be fatal.
I'd be sure to talk to the doctor who prescribed your Wellbutrin. Mixing herbals with prescription medications can have very serious consequences and your doctor should be aware of EVERYTHING you take, including any vitamin or mineral supplements..
75mgs is a very low dosage for Wellbutrin.
Best wishes, WCV
