Trazadone/Wellbutrin headachechills?

Posted by InsomniaMom on June 7, 2002, at 9:08:23

I have been on WellbutrinSR for a couple of years and it doesn't seem to be working anymore. It really helped my concentration and depression at first, but I have always had to supplement it with valium and/or sonata to get more than 3 or 4 hours of sleep. My dr. told me to take the second (150mg) at lunchtime so I wouldn't be so hyper at night, but that still makes me feel really weird and I think I've built up a tolerance to the valium and sonata. I always feel depressed after taking the sonata, too.

A couple of nights ago I decided to try out some trazadone. My mother has a stockpile and is not taking them anymore. I took 75 mg (she used to take 300)and awakened at 4am with a wicked headache, dizziness a little nausea, hot with chills and weird feeling in my I had to keep stretching.

Excedrin helped the head pain, but I was dizzy and felt cold all day. Was wearing a sweatshirt in Florida!

I know from the literature I've read that the dizziness was most likely a side effect, the headache possibly a side effect, but what about the chills? Is it bad to take with Wellbutrin?

Any thoughts would be helpful...except to try SSRI's...will not take them again.

Thanks...I'm new here and almost ready to check myself into the psych ward with my mother...
