I have just started taking 150 mg Wellbutrin XL in addition to my usual 10 mg Lexapro. At day 17, I started itching like MAD!!! Hands, fingers, scalp, back, neck, feet, etc. Feels similar to the itch of athlete's foot. No rash, hives, or skin irritation (except for my constant rubbing raw of the itchy areas). On day 19 I decided to quit taking the Wellbutrin, and believe it or not, that is also the day it finally kicked in and I have A LOT more energy now.

So, I started taking it again, and I'm wondering if there are any others out there that experienced the itching and if/when it stopped? I'm really pleased with my mood now and am hoping the itching will pass...

Thanks in advance for any replies.

> > Is anyone on the combination of Lexapro AND Wellbutrin SR/ I am on 10mg Lexapro and 150 mg os Wellbutrin Sr. I like combining them because of the sexual side effects of the SSRI and I think Wellbutrin enhances it---anyone else trying this???
