JayRay,

I have had a very similar success. Mine is Prozac and Wellbutrin, but same story as yours. I'm bipolar, so I also take Lithobid.

> I had been on Wellbutrin and it made me feel so anxious. I switched to Zoloft and felt so blah about everything. My doctor then put me on both. Although it's only been about 2 weeks, I've noticed an improvement. I just had to find a common ground between being depressed and bouncing off the walls. The only side effects I have experienced is trouble sleeping for about the first week but that's gone now. Oh, as far as dosages... I was on 75mg of Wellbutrin in the morning and 50mg of Zoloft at bedtime for the first week. And then incresed the Well butrin to 150mg. So far so good but it's still too early to reccommend it to others. I'll keep in touch though. :)

I found zoloft to be great, however, was disturbed by the lack of 'zing' and passion in my life, which I know to be a common complaint. Dr. started me on Wellbutrin and for a while, as I was coming off the Zoloft, I felt absolutely great. Lately I've been irritable, weepy and emotional, but NOT depressed (there is a difference). Soooo, after discussing it with my Dr., decided on supplementing with Effexor because what I've read about it's multiple neurotransmittor hits is intrigueing. Horrible nausea the first night lasting into the day. Is this common and does it go away? I'm willing to go back to Wellbutrin & Zoloft, but want to give Wellbutrin/Effexor a try. Any thoughts/experience? Dosages? Would I still also need the Wellbutrin, or is Effexor usually sufficient? Any help is appreciated.
