I have been taking 10-20mg of Lexapro and 150-300mg of Wellbutrin for the last 3 years. 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.
Side Effects- I have been experiencing gross night sweats for the last month or so. Tonight was no different – who doesn’t love waking up in a pool of sweat.
Energy- A little sluggish after work but nothing to bad
Why? – I have a magical pill that controls my anxiety and depression, why stop. Honestly, I wouldn’t stop but at some point the costs begin to outweigh the benefits. In 3 years I have gained 20lbs. For a 27 year old, my energy levels are dismal, and lastly the whole short term memory loss thing is not fun.
Lexapro – 5mg
Wellbutrin – 150mg
