Re: New to this Whole Wellbutrin Thing

I gained almost 50 lbs while on Zyprexa and Seroquel, it was NOT a pretty picture! Of course I was also on Effexor. I only began to lose this weight when I got off the Effexor and on the Wellbutrin which is, FOR ME, the best antidepressant. However, I CANNOT take the Wellbutrin with Prozac (warning) -- about 20% of the population cannot metabolize the two together.
I found this all out AFTER a horrendous psychotic break and four days in the "rubber room"! At first they blamed just the Wellbutrin, and I was greatly relieved to find out otherwise, as I have never taken such an effective antidepressant as Wellbutrin XR. I cannot take the new SR as I take to high a dose (200mgm AM and 200mgm PM).
Has anyone else had the Prozac/Wellbutrin problem?
