Can Wellbutrin treat ADHD?

Nothing can treat ADHD because its s a Fake condition made-up by a drug company that had come up with a new drug. And No use for the drug! So they made-up their fake ADHD condition! Pay lots of illegal money to overly, greedy, so posit, doctors!

The drug is far more likely to harm the innocent people!

Does Stratterra cause weight loss?

I have been on Strattera for almost a year, while it did not do a whole lot my my add, it did cause me to loose over 70 pounds, size 14 to a size 4. I just stopped and tried Vyvanse, it worked great for 2 days, but a night my hunger was uncontrollable, going to continue with the Strattera. I am taking 100mg.

What is Wellbutrin?

Wellbutrin is an antidepressant. The generic name is bupropion. It is also marketed under the name Zyban as an aid to smoking cessation.

Wellbutrin operates on the neurotransmitters dopamine and norepinephrin (noradrenaline). It is one of the few antidepressants that operate primarily on dopamine rather than serotonin.

Some other facts:

  • It is an antidepressant with a little help for focus. It has also worked well to help addicts stop using or even smokers.

  • I'll give you what I know about Wellbutrin: It is a common antidepressant used to treat depression. Then, through anecdotal reports from patients and Doctors, the medical community saw an easier time quitting smoking for patients on Wellbutrin. So they then began to market Welbutrin as Cyan. Zyban is the same as Wellbutrin just a different name for a different use.

    If your doctor has prescribed Wellbutrin for depression and related problems here are two suggestions from firsthand knowledge:
  • If you've ever had a seizure, make sure your doctor knows. Even though it is a safe and effective drug, it has a tendency to trigger seizures
  • Monitor your dosage carefully. Too high of a dose has caused bad reactions in some people. Especially if you are on other medication. A small percentage of people just can't take it at all.

Is it safe mixing Wellbutrin with caffeine and acetaminophen?

Yes, it is safe - relatively. Apparently caffeine lowers the seizure threshold, but this is minor considering the anxious wired state this combination produces.

I think you mean wellbutrin. It is an antidepressent w/ a little help for focus. It has also worked well to help addicts stop using or even smokers.

AnswerIt seems that you are combining Welbutrin and Albuterol.As stated above, Welbutrin is an antidepressant generally given to smokers to help them quit.Albuterol on the other hand, is asthma medication which comes in an inhaler. AnswerI also think you are mixing up two drugs. I'll give you what I know about Wellbutrin: It is a common anti-depressant used to treat drepression. Then, through anecdotal reports from patients and Doctors, the medical community sawan easier time quitting smoking for patients on Wellbutrin. So they then beganto market Welbutrin as Zyban. (Zyban is the same as Wellbutrin), just a different name for a different use. If you are prescibed Wellbutrin for depression and related problems, I have two suggestions (from first-hand knowledge). First; if you've ever had a seizure, make sure your Doctor knows. Even though it is a safe and effective drug, it has a tendency to trigger a sizure.Second; monitor your dosage carefully. Too high of a dose has caused bad reactions in some people. Especially if you are on other medication. A SMALL percentage of people just can't take it. !

How long till Wellbutrin takes effect?

I think it depends...

I would say uhhh 1-3 days :) Depending on liver function/age/enzymatics

Its DRI and NRI and not a SSRI or SRI...

SSRIs take longer to take effect I think...

Ask your doctor

Lexapro

Can Lexapro and Wellbutrin be taken safely together and are there increased side effects?

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!

AnswerWhile all medications can have side effects, if your doctor wants you to use those two medications it's because of a problem that he thinks can be solved with that combination. Using the two meds together can be effective for some people. The side effects do not affect all people, that part depends on your body chemistry and even if you do have side effects, reports are that they go away after going off the meds.

In general, it's better to do what the doctor suggests, especially when anxiety and depression are involved.

Answer

BOTH medications are antidepressants but in a different class. IF you were prescribed both of them by different doctors, I would definitely check with the doctor or pharmacist. I would still ask even if they were prescribed by the same doctor; it never hurts to question prescriptions you are given. And as I always say, ask your pharmacist for a print-out of the medications. The print-outs have a great deal of information about the drugs including drug/drug interactions, drug/food interactions, it explains exactly what the drug is and how it should be used, just about everything and anything you need to know and then some. It also warns about reactions with over-the-counter drugs, which many people forget to take into consideration. BE SAFE....ASK QUESTIONS.

Answer

My mom's Dr. Just Prescribed her Lexapro to supplement the 300mg Wellbutrin XL a couple days ago. The Lex takes care of the serotonin and the Wellbutrin re-uptakes the dopamine and the norepeinephrine. Yeah it's gonna totally give your little engine a rehall. In theory, it takes care of all the main factors contributing to depression, but you really never know what chemicals you need and which ones need not be messed with. It's trial and error, dude. The scientific method applied. I hope it works for mama, the lady is in a rut.

Answer

The answer to this question is YES, Wellbutrin (bupropion) and Lexapro can be taken together. There is no negative interaction. Strangely, the addition of Wellbutrin to Lexapro is said to reverse some of the latter's tendency to interfere with erection, libido, and orgasm in males (and Lexapro is BAD in this respect). The normal dose of Wellbutrin after titrating up from 150mg is 300mg, preferably in the XL (released gradually over time) form, and the Lexapro is normally one 10mg tab QD. I have seen these two meds prescribed together this way but I have not checked with the patients to see if it helped (problem was sexual s/e on the Lexapro). More common for sexual s/e in males is simply a prescription for Viagra. These two antidepressants do inhibit the reuptake of two different neurotransmitters as someone above wrote, but the actual effect of the two meds together is subjective and will be slightly different for everyone. Two antidepressants do not give you twice the antidepressant effect, but may result in a slightly better antidepressant effect, with fewer sexual s/e or reduced anxiety. Fortunately, you can test-drive this combo safely and see what it does for you. Generally, Wellbutrin has mild caffeine-like effects which some pt's like, but others feel it increases their anxiety. It has no sexual s/e. Lexapro does not have the caffeine-like side effects and is supposed to reduce anxiety as well as depression, but it interferes with male sexual function to a greater extent than its maker lets on. Based on what male patients have told me, my guess is that sexual dysfunction is an issue in at least 50% of male pt's taking an SSRI. But the answer to your question is YES, they can be safely taken together. You won't get an adverse reaction like you would combining SSRI's and MAOI's, or MAOI's and tyramine, or even certain SSRI's with other SSRI's.

AnswerI have been taking 10mg Lexpro for three years, and about 3 months ago was put on 150mg wellbutrin XL to counter sexual side effects, most notably lower libido, but most frustratingly, lack of ability to orgasm. There has been some improvement in my mood and activity, and there is a definite change in libido, but the inability to orgasm has again returned. Along with those side effects, I have suffered from headache, transient nausea, muscle cramping and increased tinitus. From other boards I have read, this seems to be side effects from Lexapro, and also Lexapro withdrawal. I want to discontinue the Lexapro, but stay on the Wellbutrin for now. Has anyone done this? I plan a fairly lengthy taper, but I definitely don't want to be on it anymore. It did its job very well, as it stopped my GAD and panic attacks almost immediately and I haven't had a PA for three years, but I can't take the other side effects, especially the sexual effects anymore. I would rather have an occasional panic attack than be asexual right now.

EDIT:

Why is female libido never mentioned? Lexapro (and most anti-depressants) do the same exact thing for females as they do for males. It is as though female libido is not as important as whether or not a man can get it up.

In my experience, Wellbutrin is a fantastic addition to if not replacement for antidepressants in regards to sex drive and the feeling of numbness you tend to get when taking antidepressants.

I have GAD, panic attacks, and depression...I have been on lexapro for a year and a half...take the smallest dose you can for sexual side effects for this drug. After a while of being on lexapro I have seen the sexual side effects somewhat subside...I was prescribed wellbutrin but haven't taken it yet for an extra oomph and to quit smoking. but I read the two can have interactions. I still am going to take the two and ride it out to see what happens...but as far as female libido at first I wasn't getting aroused at all then no orgasm but with time (and a little effort and patience!) I am somewhat back to my old self and can have orgasms and I want to have sex...also I just got off birth control about 4 months ago and since getting off the pill my libido climbed a little...hope this helps..good luck

AnswerI had 150mg of Wellbutrin added to my daily Lexapro dosage in January and I was amazed at the results. I had had serious problems with anorgasmia for years and after a month on Wellbutrin, things improved a great deal. After a while, my doctor agreed to let me slowly taper off of Lexapro. I've been on straight Wellbutrin now for five months. I do tend to get a bit more emotional than I am used to but I'm beginning to realize that this might actually be a good thing. When I was on Lexapro, I almost never laughed or cried about anything!

I should also add that in addition to moving to Wellbutrin, I did some research on supplements to help combat anxiety. I now take a vegetarian multivitamin, evening primrose oil, Omega 3, and L-Theanine with my daily medication. I have not had any problems with anxiety since I started this regimen.

Answer(Sorry for my poor English; I'm french). My doctor prescribed me 300 mg of Wellbutrin, for 1 year. And haded 5 mg of Cipralex (french name for Lexapro). The results were amazing. In the past i tried other medication and i was not able to fell anything. With Wellbutrin there were no side effect on my libido and no gane of waith. But the anxiety was still there. With only 5 mg of Lexapro the anxiety attack never came back. Now in french: Mon docteur m'a prescrit du Wellbutrin pendant un an. Depuis peu, il a ajouté 5 mg de Cirpalex. Les résultats ont été fantastiques. Par le passé j'avais essayé plusieurs autres anti-dépresseurs. Les effects secondaires étaient épouvantables. En plus, je ne ressentais rien. Avec le Wellbutrin les effets secondaires n'ont pas affecté ma libido ainsi que mon poids. Et maintenant, le Cipralex contrôle bien mon anxiété.

How long after stopping Wellbutrin might it be safe to drink alcohol?

Drinking while taking Wellbutrin isn't dangerous per se - Wellbutrin just amplifies the effects of alcohol. I take Wellbutrin and drink and nothing bad has happened to me, but I do need to drink less. If you're still concerned, Wellbutrin has a half-life of ~21 hours, so it will be mostly cleared from your body in 2 or 3 days.

I haven't found any difficulties with drinking alcohol on Wellbutrin, although I am only on 150 mg daily. I've read that it increases risk of seizures, which is higher with Wellbutrin as it is. Just be careful about how much you drink, I would say, or even better -- ask your doctor.

_______________________________________________________________

I believe that the above information is incorrect. My pharmacist told me and I've read online that when you drink alcohol while on wellbutrin it empties the stores of wellbutrin that youre body/brain has accumulated since you started. Many people go into wellbutrin withdrawal after they drink and feel really bad for days or weeks. Ive been through it, its HORRIBLE.

Wellbutrin and clonazepam be taken together?

My physician has presrcibed them both for me, W is an antidepressant and C is for panic attacks (initially in it's early days it was only used as an anti-seizure med, but come to find out it works for panic too). I take 300 mg of W per day and 2-3 mg of C per day. I take them ONLY with my doctor's prescriptions. I get a 30 day's supply of each at a time and that IS ALL. C is a controlled substance. Hope that helps...and remember, everyone is different and not all Dr's agree on what should go with what, but I know if they were not okay to be taken together he would never allow it, PLUS my pharmacist would not either...

What is Wellbutrin prescribed for?

Wellbutrin is an anti-depressant

Wellbutrin (bupropion) is an antidepressant. Although it has almost the same chemical makeup of stimulants, it doesn't have the same effect

Like most antidepressants, it is an norepinephrine and dopamine reuptake inhibitor (NDRI), which is supposed to regulate the amount of dopamine and norepinephrine (the stuff that makes you happy) absorbed by your brain. And because of its chemical makeup, it can even reduce your threshold for seizures, so if you are epileptic, you doctor might prescribe something to counteract that effect.

Most people don't even start actively absorbing antidepressants until the 2nd or 3rd week of use. Doctors will most likely start you off at 150mg and raise it to 300mg, with the cap at 450mg if they think you need it. Tell them about any side effects you are having.

This is one of the side effects of Wellbutrin, and will probably go away with time. However, Wellbutrin can also cause high blood pressure, which can in turn cause ear ringing, so it would be a good idea to get your blood pressure checked.

Does Wellbutrin help get off the weight that was gained on Lexapro and does Wellbutrin help with feelings of sadness and crying?

This is the second part to the answer-- Yes you can take wellbutrin to help lose weight from Lexapro-- I gain 25lbs on LEX and even more when i stopped take it-- so far after a year and 1/2 i have lost 20 pounds with NO exercise at all, it really helped with my depression too. Only set back you have to take name brand wellbutrin, the other stuff is crap and crazy side effects and the other set back is its expesive as HELL but my insursance covered it an i pay $ 50 each month w/out insurance 303.99. GOOD LUCK dont give up.

Try natural before drugs because you don't know all the side effects of the drugs - not even the drug company knows the full effect of their own drug. My suggestion for depression is St. Johns Wort or SAM-e (if you can afford it). For weight loss, there are plenty of diet pills that work, but there is no true substitute for good diet and exercise. I found that exersise in the morning makes me feel good throughout the day, it is a natural mood lift.

I take Wellbutrin for Bipolar II Disorder along with Abilify. I am currently at 300mg of Wellbutrin and I love it. I am used to getting severely depressed and having bouts of hypo mania. When on this drug, I feel there is a cap to the "low" my body will allow me to go and when I have hypo mania, I don't go as "high". What I like about this drug, is the fact that my sexual drive isn't impeded on and since I'm a smoker, my cravings are almost completely gone. It is also helping me with weight loss. I'm still allowed to have feelings and don't feel like someone put a cork on the dam of my emotions, I'm me, just a less emotional swinging pendulum version.

Does mastrbation cause weight loss?

Depends really on whether you are male or female. I can not answer for the woman, but for men, it makes sense to a certain degree. When you ejaculate, you are releasing live cells from your body, as well as a carrier fluid. These things have to be replaced, and that takes energy and materials. And if you are rather shall we say vigorous in your undertaking, so much that you break a sweat, then well you have been exercising, exercise you may not have done otherwise. All other things been equile, I would say yes, yes it theoretically would have an effect. However, whether it would have enough of an effect to rise above the statistical variations in what we eat and do, well I don't know. All in all, I would say that is likely that less pleasurable forms of exercise would be more beneficial to achieving your weight lossgoals. On the other hand if you mean weight loss as a bad thing, again, it is unlikely to rise above the statistical averages. Wank on brother, wank on.

What are the effects of Bupropion?

-Effects of Snorting Bupropion(Wellbutrin XL)

The high from snorting Wellbutrin is not worth how addictive it becomes. I am perscribed to this and read many of these forums posted on Wikianswers, Yahoo Answers, and Erowid about peoples experiences, so i decided to try it myself.

I've read it burns very badly, it makes you feel extremely care free, and it can be slightly psychedelic, also numbing. I am diagnosed with Bipolar 1 and have a prescription for it so i decided to try it. It burned very bad the first time. I didn't find it untolerable, but ive done peruvian cocaine and street cocaine and in comparison burned twice as bad. After a while its hard to even notice. The high for me was not that intense. I feel a little care free and maybe a little numb but that's about it. Nothing psychedelic whatsoever. I found myself doing an entire pill and more at times. One 150mg pill is enough is easily enough to make 10 lines. I just wanted more after each line i did. I did it for probably a week straight at random times in a day and realized how addicting it really was. I stopped and definitely more depressed than normal for a few days. I think certain drugs have there time for experience. I am most definitely not a hardcore addict by any means. I've tried shrooms 3 times, cocaine 3 times, salvia once and smoke weed pretty regularly. All except salvia were worth the experiment and i do not regret any of them. I definitely do not reccommend snorting Welbutrin just to get high, or even for the experience so much for what memory problems and other brain damage could come from it. it IS possible to get high off of life, and that's by far the best high. Really though, i had to go bust 3 lines of Wellbutrin before i wrote this, that was the first time in like a week. I thought it would help me concentrate. It didnt do sh*t, im very irittable and can barely think enough to write my thoughts clearly and put down what i truly wanted to say here.

Can Wellbutrin cause a rash?

I wouldn't doubt it. You should ask your doctor though. It may be caused if you use Tylenol or other mediactions too, a simple reaction of not mixing well with other medications. But just to be safe I would go talk to a doctor about it.

ANY medication you take has the potential for side effects. Everyone has different body chemistry and you should ask your doctor or your pharmacist. Yourdoctor may choose to try a different dose or different medication. Follow thedirections carefully!!

Yes, skin rash is one of the most common side effects of Wellbutrin XL or SR. It's something you should bring up with your doctor. It is however listed as one of the most common side effects of this medication.. it's treatable.

---- Interactions searched:

* methadone * Wellbutrin (buPROPion) ---- 1 Interaction found:

# methadone and Wellbutrin (buPROPion) (Major Drug-Drug) SERIOUS PROBLEM: The use of bupropion is associated with a dose-related risk of seizures. The estimated incidence of seizures is approximately 0.1% at dosages up to 300 mg/day and 0.4% at dosages between 300 to 450 mg/day, but increases almost tenfold between 450 mg and 600 mg/day. The risk may also be increased during coadministration with selective serotonin reuptake inhibitors (SSRI antidepressants or anorectics), monoamine oxidase inhibitors, neuroleptic agents, central nervous system stimulants, opioids, tricyclic antidepressants, other tricyclic compounds (e.g., cyclobenzaprine, phenothiazines), systemic steroids, and/or any substance that can reduce the seizure threshold (e.g., carbapenems, cholinergic agents, fluoroquinolones, interferons, chloroquine, mefloquine, lindane, theophylline). These agents are often individually epileptogenic and may have additive effects when combined.

POSSIBLE SOLUTION: Extreme caution is advised if bupropion is administered with any substance that can reduce the seizure threshold, particularly in the elderly and in patients with a history of seizures or other risk factors for seizures (e.g., head trauma; brain tumor; severe hepatic cirrhosis; metabolic disorders; CNS infections; excessive use of alcohol or sedatives; addiction to opiates, cocaine, or stimulants; diabetes treated with oral hypoglycemic agents or insulin). Bupropion as well as concomitant medications should be initiated at the lower end of the dose range and titrated gradually if feasible. The total dose of bupropion should generally not exceed 450 mg/day (or 150 mg every other day in patients with severe hepatic cirrhosis). Bupropion should be discontinued and not restarted in patients who experience a seizure during treatment.

When to eat breakfast when taking Wellbutrin?

In my experience, I find that I need to eat breakfast BEFORE or exactly after taking my Wellbutrin. If I do not eat or wait an hour or two to eat, I will get very nausuos, very jittery, and feel "cracked out". I even thought I could fix that "bad" feeling by eating once it started happening, but it is too late at that point. and it would take about 10 hours before it would wear off. So I learned my lesson and always eat something, even if I am not hungry. The Wellbutrin has been a god-send since I have gained so much weight due to a back injury. I have absolutely NO appetite. But make sure you eat breakfast even if you aren't hungry. Everyone is different, but this is my opinion.

Is Wellbutrin recommended for adults with attention deficit disorder in addition to bipolar?

OK. You should go back to the beginning of this ADD forum and read all the questions relating to wellbutrin. They sum up a lot of basics in many easy to read packages. ALL of these topics clearly state that you should NEVER combine Wellbutrin, which affects dopamine and can be over stimulating, or any serotonin re-uptake inhibitor with a Bipolar disorder (unless your doctor KNOWS you have Bipolar and CAREFULLY monitors every single mg you put in your hole) because of the various life threatening affects: suicide, homicide, violent acts of uncontrolled MANIA, and you can guess the rest.

The thing is... It could turn your already screwed-up brain chemistry into a bunch of unbalanced equations (crude analogy) -- AND we all know what happens to unstable equations/solutions in the lab! THEY EXPLODE (more or less)!!! Although I am going a little extreme here, BETTER SAFE THAN SORRY.

Please go to a doctor and engage him/her in a detailed description of your TRUE/Noticeable symptoms (be sure to bring the printed information you found on the internet regarding what you think is wrong with you) BEFORE trying to self diagnose or *God forbid!!* SELF MEDICATE!!! you could be putting your friends/family/school/neighborhood at risk as well as yourself.

Lithium, Abilify, etc. treat Bipolarbecause they are MOOD STABILIZERS. Notice the key word: "STABILIZE"

I have heard of mood stabilizers being supplemented with ADHD medication Strattera, only because it happened to me. I am assuming that my Dr. figured Adrenaline really wouldn't mess with mood swings. he was right. it didn't do anything at all! haha. go figure. turns out I don't really have Bipolar after all -- that's probably why he subtracted the strattera and added two SSRI's to the mind cocktail: Abilify, Lexapro, AND Trazadone (which is actually an antidepressant disguised as a sleeping pill). I guess he thought the ADD was the mania part and the depression was the other end of the Bipolar spiral. he never said anything to me- I'm just assuming. But if that's the case, why didn't he prescribe another ADHD med? MAYBE he thought I was schizo and THAT'S why he prescribed the abilify (seriously). He was a pill pusher from the go-go. Asked me ten question's then handed me a prescription a mile long (most doctors aren't like this). didn't do a thing but take my extremely fun and vivid dreams away. They weren't hurting anyone.

ANYWAY - turns out I am ADHD with MILD depression resulting from the ADHD. I am two and a half weeks into Wellbutrin XL (1st week 150mg, the rest 300mg)

CONS -- I have side effects of insomnia, and I had a couple sudden extreme cases of irritability that lasted for about 45 minutes-- but I am usually irritable around 1/4 of a day anyway, just not that severe. That's probably not going to last (body getting adjusted), but you never know. I don't know if the insomnia is here to stay- I need four more weeks to tell. No change in sex drive yet (usually Wellbutrin either makes you hornier or there is little to no affect).

PROS -- ENERGY!!! I am not in the bed for 12 hours or more (sleeping ;} of course). I feel like dancing! Not so much the social part-need to work on the withdrawn issue-but the activity, definately. I already unloaded my mom's packed van up a flight of stairs into her new APT. AND I actually did a chore!!! I dried the clothes!! all in one night. I am actually acting on my responsibilty and obligation guilts instead of just feeling them tear me into little fatigued peices of frustrated disorganization. concentration HAS IMPROVED. I never thought I would say that about a non-stimulant. As it turns out- I feel pretty stimulated. I think it was the dopamine all along. I tried the SNRI. I tried the SRI. I even tried Strattera! and now!!! it was the DNRI all along (not official names but you know what the letters stand for). Go figure. stimulants still work for me by the way- but if Wellbutrin really works out in the long run (2-3 months is all I'm able to give for trial and error. If it doesn't work by then I'm back on the speed or I'm on the street.) I won't have to be a tweaker anymore!!! (JOKE!!) I can never overdose on that crap either. not that I've tried, I forgot I had taken a dose so i went ahead and took another one and it made me fall asleep. Happened again, this time just four hours after I got up! took too much and I crawled back in the bed again for a five hour nap.

Feel free to share your oppinions on this delicate matter and PLEASE -- I am 19 years old, I am scatter-brained, and I collect weird bits of info from (sometimes) misinformed individuals -- CORRECT ME if I am wrong!!!
