So I have been on Lexapro 10mg for a few years and I didnt feel as if it was helping me at all. Plus I was always tired and gaining weight. My doctor suggested switching to wellbutrin. He told me to take a 150mg wellbutrin and lower my Lexapro dose to 5mg for 2 weeks, then to take 300mg wellbutrin and stop Lexapro. I am almost at the 2 week make and I feel like I have so many side effects and I don't know if it's withdrawal or the new meds, or a combo of both, or maybe I am getting sick? I have headaches, nausea, loss of appetite, lightheaded, out of it, dry mouth, stomach pain, gas, jittery, and heart palpitations at times. I'm afraid to start the 300mg and stop the Lexapro in a few days. Do these sound like symptoms of the withdrawal and starting up those drugs? Its not going away. Thanks

Yes, the symptoms you've described are typical side effects and withdrawal symptoms, according to NIH reports, they should go away with time, once your body adjusts, but that may take 4 to 5 weeks, after fully being off the Lexapro and only taking the Wellbutrin.

If things don't gradually improve, you should consult your medical provider.

Is there anything else I can help with?
