Can Wellbutrin SR be taken once a day?
Post a Reply
Recently I started taking Wellbutrin SR (generic). I'm prescribed 100 mg twice daily. However, I've been taking been taking all 200 mg once a day in the morning. Ultimately, is the SR version still effective if only taken once a day? Why do people usually take it twice a day? Will I experience any disadvantages by taking it all at once? Today is my 8th day on Wellbutrin. I definitely feel SOME improvement.

Effects of Long Term Amitriptyline Use on the Heart
83 Replies RSS
After 20 years of taking amitriptyline for headaches I would like to find people who have had any heart related side effects after long term amitriptyline use. ## Very little is known about the long-term effects of most drugs for depression. The biggest problem reported currently is relapse, when the medication is discontinued. You can read more about antidepressants here: As to any cardiac effects, I am only finding warnings that problems may occur if it is used with some specific other medications. Does anyone else know anything about this? ## I have been on Elavil for 20 years and 100mg at bedtime and I don't recommend anyone taking it long term. I have heart palpatations every day which was determined from Dr. that it was hormonal, but I don't believe it. I tried to decrease...

I was just wondering if anyone has drank with this med and were there any side effects ? I've been on lexapro 10 mil for a month and am feeling great but I am petrified to even atempt to drink alcohol,but would like to try . So if anyone could help that would be great. ## I have been on Lexapro for 3 years. I drink about twice a week and everything seems to be fine. I have noticed that if you drink heavly for a few nights in a row you will feel a slight depression. Just don't over do it. I was worried at first also. ## Lexapro is an antidepressant. Drinking alcohol is not recommended, as alcohol is a major depressant, and undoes the work the medication does. ## Never do that! I was on that medicine for 2 years, and I was never able to drink! the first time I drank when I was on ...

>>>>26 yo female - 450mg once daily<<<< I've been on Wellbutrin for proabably about a year and a half and it helps so much with depression and it helped me lose weight! The pounds were dropping!

My depression is at bay but it's not helping me keep weight off anymore... has anyone else have this happen? Idk what to do... advice please. ## Wellbutrin by itself is generally weight neutral and doesn't cause weight gain, or weight loss.

Cymbalta Adrenal Insufficiency
7 Replies RSS
I have been on Cymbalta for 7 yrs. For the last 4 yrs I've been on 120mg per day. I have dealt with many, many side effects, however it helped me so much I put up with them. But the last two years I started having severe heart palpitations and extreme bouts of fatigue. I had many cardiac test and was eventually diagnosed with a heart arythemia. And now last month I was diagnosed with adrenal insufficiency with my cortisol levels dangerously low. My FP doctor referred me to a Endocrinologist, but before I could get there I was hospitalized 4 days with pneumonia. Extreme Adrenal insufficiency causes fluid to build in your lungs. Coincidence? I don't know? Has anyone else on Cymbalta had symptoms of Adrenal fatigue? Has anyone else been on Cymbalta for 7-8 yrs? ## Actually, many me...

I take 120 mg Cymbalta for depression and Trazodone for sleep. I am still having problems with my nerves. In the past I had taken Tranxene. Could I safely add the Tranxene back with my current meds?

when should lexamil be taken
1 Reply RSS
I started taking Lexamil 10mg two days ago. I want to know when i should take my Lexamil (day or night) because i feel like sleeping the whole day? ## Drowsiness can be a normal side effect, according to the NIH. You may also experience nausea, dizziness, headache, dry mouth, and weight changes. You can take it at night, if the works better for you, unless your doctor has stated otherwise. Some people do, to avoid the drowsiness during the day. Are you on any other medications?

Wellbutrin - making me go crazy?
4 Replies RSS
Hopefully someone sees this, I've never been on this site before. My doctor increased my Wellbutrin to 450 mg about 2 months ago. I feel like I am slowly losing it, and I never thought that maybe it could be the Wellbutrin. I'm always agitated. I'm never comfortable, never relaxed. I am doing obsessive things like washing my hands repeatedly, making sure everything in the room is perfectly neat and straight. I can't cry anymore. I seem perfectly fine when I talk to people, but my mind feels like a mess. I'm focused and I do what I need to do every day, but I feel no joy, just agitation. I always feel like I need to do something and I'm always nervous about something, even if there's nothing to be nervous about. Has anyone ever taken Wellbutrin and experienced...
