> > Has anyone had any experience with taking Celexa and Wellbutrin together? I have been taking 20mg of Celexa for about a month and it seems to be helping the depression (although I still don't want to get out of bed in the morning; once I'm up and going I'm fine). I am having a couple of side effects (of course!) - insomnia (probably why I don't want to get out of bed in the morning!) and the inability to orgasm. I'm going to try meditation for the insomnia and I have tried ginko for the other and it seems to help somewhat but not enough, sex is still frustrating. I saw the doctor today and she has prescribed 100mg(?) Wellbutrin along with the Celexa. She thinks this will help with the sexual side effects. Has anyone had any experience with this? What do I need to know about the Wellbutrin? We may drop the Celexa if I still have problems.

Hi,I am on 80mg of Celexa and 400mg of Wellbutrin. I have a pretty good sex drive, but
it could be a lot better. I think the Wellbutrin
probably has helped my libido, but it does take me
a long time to fall asleep; I take Serzone and
Seroquel for sleep. Wellbutrin is one of the more
stimulating anti-depressants; it made me nervous
at first, but then the nervousness went away after
a few weeks. I wouldn't be without my maximum dose of 400mg for anything in the world. I have found Celexa to be an outstanding medication as well.
