In reply to Re: Welllbutrin, posted by Laney on March 13, 2000, at 0:47:42

I have been on Zoloft for 71/2 years and it has saved my life. My depression and anxiety was extremely severe. I tried Imipramine which helped the depression to a point but not the anxiety attacks. A couple years later after suffering another severe bout of depression my Dr put me on Zoloft which has taken away my depression and anxiety but I've gained about 45 lbs. The cravings have gotten worse over the years so now my Dr wants me to try Wellbutrin because of its weight loss effects on most people. He said I can continue to take 150 mgs of Zoloft because I was so nervous about going off it for fear I'd have another bout of depression. I'll be starting Wellbutrin (150 mgs) tomorrow.
If anyone has taken both Zoloft and Wellbutrin, I would like to hear your experience and advise.
Thanks, Tammi

> Hi -- I just started today taking Wellbutrin. I have been on Zoloft for about 2 years because of depression and it really saved my life. Now I've been diagnosed with ADD (not ADHD) and the Dr. is trying me on Wellbutrin. He says to combine the 2 drugs for now and we can lower or eliminate the Zoloft later. The depression was so difficult that I had do something to get a handle on things but the possible side effects of another drug have me kind of nervous. Although what I've read about it being an appetite suppressant is a pretty good bonus. Does anybody have experience re depression + ADD treated by either Wellbutrin or Zoloft or both that they can share? Thanks, Laney
