I am taking 40mg of Celexa and was switching to Wellbutrin. I followed the doctors orders of slowly decreasing the Celexa and started on Wellbutrin 100mg.
The first day I started this I experienced a lethargic mood. I didnt feel any need to move, I could have just sat there and stared at the wall all day and that would have been fine with me. The second day was the exact same. The third day I didnt take the Wellbutrin. Thats when I finally got up and called the doctor.
The doctors say this is odd and it may have to do with tapering off the Celexa. But on the third day I was still on a lower dose of Celexa but felt like normal.
The doctors want me to try this again and I'm wondering if anyone has heard of this happening and if the effects I felt would taper off or not?
Thanks So Much!!

Hello, BlondeCleopatra! How are you doing? I'm sorry about the problems you had.

Actually, it was probably a combination of both, withdrawal from the Celexa and side effects from starting the Wellbutrin. Things usually improve, but it may take about 4 weeks, or so, for your body to adjust to the switch.

The FDA lists the typical side effects of Wellbutrin as possibly including nausea, dizziness, dry mouth, weight changes and vision changes.

Is there anything else I can help with?
