What are the side effects of going off Zoloft and starting on Wellbutrin?

none in my experience. zoloft is a selective serotonin reuptake inhibitor (SSRI), whereas wellbutrin is a reuptake inhibitor of primarily dopamine and norepinephrine also. all three of these chemicals are associated with mood, appetite, sleep and pleasure, so its just about finding the right one for you. I had ZERO side effects while changing medications. When coming off Zoloft, it is very important that it is done gradually. The side effects of coming off too rapidly can be very frightening.

You should avoid benadryl because of cumulative possible side effects (anticholinergic effects).

What side effects can taking Adderall zoloft and corricidin cold and cough have?

Well the drug in cold and cough medicines that makes you "trip" is dextromorphan or DXM for short. Taking dextromorphan with sertraline(zoloft) can cause serotonin syndrome, which is pretty dangerous and the medicine information that came with my zoloft says it can be fatal. I also think that your not supposed to take adderal with zoloft either, probably for the same reasons, but Im not sure about that one. Just google drug interactions between the things you might be taking. Gotta be on the safe side with medicine!
