Wellbutrin anxiety/Seroquel add on...

Posted by Sheilac on December 23, 2016, at 8:20:00

Last year at this time I was taking 160mg of Geodon and it really helped me with my depression, anxiety and mania.
My doc took me off it this year because of the horrible shaking (couldn't even bring a glass to my mouth).

Now I'm taking 2500mg Keppra as my mood stabilizer (I've failed the others) and 100 Wellbutrin SR for depression.

I'm sleeping great and feel good in the morning. However, as the day goes on and after I take my Wellbutrin, I'm feeling manic.

My doc said to take the Seroquel 100-200mg. My insurance doesn't cover the XR form.

I'm wondering if taking 100mg at night is good enough? Should I take any during the day?

I've got to get ahold of this terrible mania. Xanax isn't helping.

Does anyone take it at night and during the day?

You're on the low end of the dose spectrum on KEppra. Studies with bipolar patients used up to 4000 mg of KEppra, so increasing your Keppra may help.

100 Wellbutrin is probably not even effective. I don't think its causing your mania. I think you're just having untreated mania.

You would want to take your Seroquel twice a day and at 100 mg, its not doing much. 300 mg would be a more effective dose. A plus to that dose is also an increased antidepressant effect.

A benzo will never help with mania...

I took Seroquel twice a day.
