yeah i know it's weird ..
let's say that i'm asking if using wellbutrin with an SSRI increased risk of serotonin syndrome..??
when i google about SS i saw in some articles they put wellbutrin as drug that maybe cause SS
...now we all know that wellbutrin is norepinephrine-dopamine reuptake inhibitior..how can effect serotonon meds..
even mayo clinic put wellbutrin in the causes of SS
Now to my experience..
6 or7 years ago when the first time i tried Psychiatry i were in some different combos of medicines like
prozac+favrene + tofranil
if i wasn't mistaken the side effect that i had is increase appetite ..consumption..and sleepiness..
after years 2 or 3 years i lost hop in Psychiatry..but i went back 2 years ago..then it's when wellbutrin was in the market of my country..the med give me energy to certain level better than any any depressant before it if i wasn't mistaken ..i was in zoloft 50 alone for a month then i bought wellbutrin ..as i said this med gives me energy (loss of energy was from my depression symptoms so it's was a fixed medicine on my cocktails..) but it didn't help with my OCD and panic disorder so I needed serotonin to fix that..
and then that when i started to hate SSRI''s ...zolofT even 25 cause the SS prozac a couldn't tolerate any dose above 20 also it happened with any dose above 10 with lexapro....i thought that i have a sensitive to serotonin med's
the SS symptoms happened to me:
1- feeling agitated or angry
3-some pain in the chest
4- depression became worse
5- nocturnal awaking ..
now i want to play safe..because wellbutrin is an important medicine for me and i want to be sure before stoping taking it..
dose he really effect serotonin when it used with SSRI...??
the link between wellbutrin ans SS i just knew it today in the morning and thus when i recalled my experience with it+zoloft and other SSRI medicines..
