> I just have a question. I have been on Prozac for about 4 years and have been very happy with it. I have tried to go off of it a few times with out success. I have very bad withdraws, a lot of crying, irrational thoughts, bad dreams and my brain feels funny, like it is tingling. The withdraws are worse than the depression that caused me to go on it. Anyway, I always go running back to the Prozac. Our new insurance company is refusing to cover Prozac and gave my Dr. a whole list of "cheaper" drugs to try. We decided to try Wellbutrin. Now I am having a lot of anxiety (never a problem before). My question is does anyone have experience with Wellbutrin? Does this sound like it's Prozac withdraw or could it be the new med? I have been off Prozac for 7 days and usually feel withdraw by the 3rd day, and have been on Wellbutrin for 3 days. Help!


To Ami and All:

I have been on prozac for 5 years. I am currently taking 40 mg per day in addition to 400 mg of wellbutrin. My doctor just yesterday dropped my dose of prozac from 40 to 30 mg. In 2 more weeks I will go from 30 to 20, in another 2 weeks, down to 10, and in 2 more weeks, no more prozac. Then he will INCREASE my wellbutrin from 400 mg per day to 600 mg per day. (He told me that just recently it is safe to go as high as 600 mg whereas 400 mg USED to be the max. I'm very scared of withdrawal symptoms from prozac and increased intake of wellbutrin. I can NOT live the way I did without the prozac. However, I'm sick of the sexual side effects after 5 years. And I am sick of the weight gain! Any input from all is appreciated. Please respond to my email address as well in case I can't find this site again. JackieJeckyl@aol.com
