My name is Pooja Karuche. I am 27 and I live in Brooklyn, NY. I was 24 years old when I was diagnosed with depression & anxiety, and for the last 3 years I have been taking a combination of Lexapro and Wellbutrin.
I recently got approval from psychiatrist to wean my way off of the medication. I never thought this day would come but for a long time, I didn’t need it to. I felt lucky that I found the right concoction that allowed me to function. My doctor has advised me to stay on 150mg of Wellbutrin for now and drop down to 5mg of Lexapro for 2 weeks.
I hope my experiences can provide you with some hope and clarity. Please note that I am by no means a medical professional in any capacity. Please contact me with any questions! firstname.lastname@example.org
