Are Lexapro and Wellbutrin statins?
No. They are SSRIs and work on the nervous systems where statins work in the liver and metabolism of lipids.
well yes, wellbutrin is an effective augment when taken with lexapro. But its Lexapro that's the major player.
Can you please tell me what is best taking Wellbutrin SR 100mg twice a day or combining Wellbutrin SR 100mgand Lexapro 10mg?
Wellbutrin and Lexapro work on different brain chemistries. Wellbutrin works on the dopamine while Lexapro works on Seratonin. Ten mg of Lexapro is a small dose. Wellbutrin can be taken twice a day to prolong its efficacy in conjunction with the Lexapro taken once. This is a standad therapy.
when i switched from lexapro to wellbutrin xl, i became suicidal just be careful and monitor your feelings
I just stop taking wellbutrin xl and start lexapro? the doctor said it was okay...
They work fine together. The Lexapro helps with the anxiety that the Wellbutrin can cause; and the Lexapro helps relieve the constipation the Wellbutrin can cause. Just take the lowest possible doses of each, such as 150 mg Wellbutrin XL and 5 mg Lexapro. Try starting off with 5 mg of Lexapro, and go up to 10 mg if necessary. But do not exceed the dose recommended by your doctor.
Not that I know of. I've seen mostly anxiety, nervousness, and irritability from suddenly stopping SSRIs such as lexapro or wellbutrin. This answer is incorrect. Hair loss is a known side effect of Wellbutrin.
maybe. lexapro causes nausea. wellbutrin may help side effects. call your dr!
You are on Lexapro and Wellbutrin both - you want to get off one of them Which one should you get off of?
due to the fact i have been on both and had a lot of intestinal problems with Lexapro, I would definantly get off it and stay on the Wellbutrin. Wellbutrin is usually more well tolerated.
abilify and wellbutrin together
Yes, this is a very common combination. I am on Wellbutrin and Lexapro, it's working wonders. A: I was put on Lexapro for anxiety. It started not working as well as day one and decrease ability to orgasm. I informed my doctor. He prescribed Lexapro for the morning and Wellbutrin at night. The first day, no side effects. 2nd day, had sadness, irritability and agitation, and was dizzy. 3rd day- was unable to move, unable… Read More

Then you will have the problem to face of Wellbutrin withdrawal, which is particularly unpleasant. Solving one drug's side effects by introducing another can result in an infinite cycle.
I was on 10mg of Lexapro for 7 months and yes my hair has become much thinner. I am off it now and experiencing hives ,dizziness, headaches and insomnia.
I take all three and it works great! No problems at all.
Yes, but your Dr. would need to tell you if it's safe for "You" to mix them.
No you shouldn't because it can led you to taking more drugs and making you more crazy!
Because The entire pharma industry is a scam- read on The latest lawsuit against Astra Zeneca.
If you have suffered anxiety and depression and taken lexapro with Wellbutrin later to help with the depression what were your results?
I had side effects , i started putting on weight, and did not get a permenant cure but i got this blog which really helped me to cure the panic attack http://trainyourmind.blogspot.com -------------------- I have been on lexapro 20mg and wellbutrin 150mg for about 6 months for depression and anxiety. Mixing these two has helped me with both mood and lack of attention/energy in my case. My impression is that Lexapro works pretty well with… Read More
I currently take 20 mg of Lexapro and 150 mg of Wellbutrin daily along with 650 mg of Inositol twice daily. While one can use Inositol alone to modulate seratonin similar to that of SSRIs it usually requires doses of 10 - 12 mg or even higher to do so. I'm a bigger guy and I wouldn't recommend really exceeding the inositol dose I take in conjunction with Lexapro or a similar SSRI due to… Read More
You can try it, although the full 300mg dose of wellbutrin is likely what's needed it if wil work for you. The 150mg doesn't seem to do much for anyone. I tried wellbutrin with just about every ssri out there, in different combinations and dosages but in three years I haven't found anything that significantly offsets the sexual side effects of ssris. Unfortunately, I think that if you're prone to the sexual s/e's of ssri… Read More
Yes you can take both. I was taking 20mg of lexapro for about 5 months before I strated suboxone. I had no effects from taking them both. I just stopped taking my lexapro a few days ago because I felt like it wasn't helping me. I'm taking wellbutrin 150mg and my suboxone daily. So far its fine. I do know that it can be difficult to get off suboxone too. I stopped lexapro because I… Read More
I recently switched from Cymbalta to Welbutrin. Cymbalta is similar to Lexapro. I started the transition by halving my Cymbalta dose while starting Welbutrin. This went on for a week, then I discontinued the Cymbalta and took only Welbutrin. Of course, the best answer to this question is to follow your doctor's orders.
The pharmacist would know best. I've heard that the use of the two together can cause a very dangerous state that some compare with the dream-like state associated with ambien.
I have been taking lexapro for about 4 years.I decided on my own to stop taking it all together. I instantly had more energy.I am on my second week and am still having "brain shocks" mainly when I make sudden adjustments with my eyes. Loud noizes or yelling triggers it also.Other than that no other side effects.
Yes Lexapro does make you gain weight. In July 2007 I was 117 pounds wihich I had lost because of a big depression this winter. We are now at the end of Oct and I weight 144 lbs. I started Lexapro in May but at that time was on 150mg of Wellbutrin and doctor put me down to 100 mg. I am also taking 200 mg Topomax which had help me loose a lost of… Read More
Every person differs when it comes to taking medication for depression/anxiety. I have minor anxiety and minor depression; it runs in my family. I began taking Lexapro at 19 to stabilize my mood and it worked great. It made me a little sleepier at nights, but nothing abnormal. I decided I wanted to be like a normal college kid so I went and saw my general practitioner about switching out my Lexapro to something that… Read More
No statins don't make you put on weight....
Statins reduce the ESR
Statins are a type of medicine that is used to aid in lowering blood cholesterol levels. Statins block the production of an enzyme which produces cholesterol in the liver.
I just came off wellbutrin and lexapro cold turkey and I'm finding myseld constantly angry is this a side effect of the withdrawal?
I can't say I about Wellbutrin, but as for the Lexapro which I too am coming off, I am extremely emotional and very quick to anger. I can't even stand myself. There is no build up. Someone does something minor and I'm instantly pissed and yelling. I also am experiencing headaches, horrible brain zaps and dizziness as well as fatigue. I weaned myself to 5mg a day then quit. It has been four days of… Read More
As long as you need to take them... patients will generally stay on the medications for 6-12 months *after* resolution of depression symptoms. Patients with recurring bouts of depression may stay on them longer (sometimes for life).
I take Lexapro 30 mg, Lamictal 200 mg and Wellbutrin XL 300 mg. I am doing fine and have few unpleasant side effects. Was treated with antidepressants exclusively until I had run through them all to the max dosages and was absolutely flat on my back out of my mind crazy. It took 6 months for us to get to this mix that is working great for me.
As far as I know statins do not cause heart disease.
Red yeat rice and oyster mushrooms contain natural statins.
I have taken Wellbutrin and Lexapro together everyday for the past 4 years and have had no problems at all. I initially took just Wellbutrin but after about 6 months started having anxiety so my doctor also added Lexapro which was the trick. Although, it may seem strange to be on 2 anti-depressants these two were given to me and was great! Answer While all medications can have side effects, if your doctor wants you… Read More
In my case, statins did not lower the count, but did cause bleeding and extensive petechiae.
Statins help improve cholesterol by reabsorbing the cholesterol that has built up in the artery walls.

Antidepressants Wellbutrin, Zoloft, Prozac, Paxil, Lexapro, and Effexor to a lesser degree. I've seen much advertising about Cymbalta, but I don't know how frequently it's actually prescribed. These at least are the most common ones i hear about being administered.
It depends on what mental illness you are thinking of. For bipolar disorder there are a few different meds that adolescents commonly take. Lamictal, Lithium, and Depikote. For depression in adolescents, Wellbutrin is common and Lexapro works very well in adolescents.
I'm no expert, but I've been taking wellbutrin for almost a year. I wouldn't call wellbutrin a "high." I have always been a pretty emotional person, but once I got to college and had actual stressors in my life, it kept taking me longer and longer to snap out of moods caused by everyday conflicts. Wellbutrin -and counseling- has allowed me to see conflicts without immediately reacting with emotion. Instead I react with reason, and… Read More
Niacin may have negative interactions with statins specially for patients with diabetes.
celexa is a generic of lexapro Celexa is not the generic of Lexapro. Its the sister of Celexa. Lexapro will go generic, hopefully, by 2012
No. There is no benzoyleconine is Wellbutrin. The chemical name of Wellbutrin is bupropion. Benzoyleconine is a metabolite of cocaine.
I have never heard of Lexapro, but am on Bupropion HCL SR, aka, Wellbutrin and on Seroquel. I have been diagnosed as having Bi-polar disorder. I'm also on triazolam, aka, Halcion and Lorazepam,aka, Ativan. I take the Seroquel, Triazolam, Lorazepam, and over the counter Melatonin at bedtime to help me sleep and then take the Bupropion in the morning to wake up. Seroquel is used to treat mental/mood conditions such as bipolar disorder and schizophrenia… Read More
