> I take Wellbutrin 150 mg BID together with Zoloft 175 mg. Although not Prozac, Zoloft is another SSRI. This combo is working well for me. Keep in mind that Prozac is a much more powerful SSRI, and it has a *much* longer half-life. I think Zoloft or Celexa would be better to start with, then go to Prozac or Paxil if they don't work.

I take 60 mg daily of Prozac, but after about a year and half it seems to have stopped working well. My doctor prescribed Effexor, but the side effects were horrific and I asked him to pull me off, which we did. He has now prescribed Wellbutrin, which I started yesterday (150 mg/d to start; then 200 mg/d afer a week).

Does anyone have experience mixing these two? I'm wondering if he plans to have me stop the Prozac eventually and is just trying to find a replacement by overlapping to make my life easier...
