Anyone Ever Switched From Fluoxetine (brand Name Prozac) To Bupropion (name Brand Wellbutrin)?

Anyone Ever Switched From Fluoxetine (brand Name Prozac) To Bupropion (name Brand Wellbutrin)?

I've been on Fluoxetine for 3 years (in conjunction with Wellbutrin for about a year and a half), and it's worked well for me. I was depressed to the point of daily, frequent suicidal thoughts, and over time the meds I've taken have helped me reach a point where I rarely have a suicidal thought, ever.

However, now that I'm feeling emotionally better, the sexual side effects (in addition to others) of Fluoxetine have been wearing on me, and I've been thinking about switching to another… read more

Medication Question

Medication Question

I am bi polar and I take Geodon, Invega, Amitriptyline, Paxil, Hydroxyzine, Lamictal And I am having trouble sleeping. Anyone have any suggestions? I've taken Seraquel, Trazodone and it doesnt work.

Has Anyone Experienced “zaps” When Not Withdrawing From Medication?

Has Anyone Experienced “zaps” When Not Withdrawing From Medication?

I am on Effexor and Wellbutrin. I used to get them when I was tired but my dr added Seroquel to the mix. Now I’m getting them all the time and I feel them in my upper body (chest area) not just my head. I am also experiencing dyspnea (can’t take a deep breath). I was on anti anxiety meds like Clonazepam but had adverse side effects from two different ones.

Sexual Dysfunction From Anti Depressants?

Sexual Dysfunction From Anti Depressants?

I’m struggling with the decision to start back on an anti depressant. What made me stop last time was the side effects, more specifically the ones that made being intimate wayyy less fun...I want to know if it’s just me? how do you deal with it? I e already tried a handful of different kinds, but are there kinds that don’t cause this specific reaction? Or is it inevitable ?

Weight Gain On Antidepressants

Weight Gain On Antidepressants

Hi I've been on different antidepressants for years and am currently on cymbalta/duloxetine. All of them have caused me to put on weight, which causes more depression and not liking myself.
