I have never taken Wellbutrin with Prozac, but I did combine Wellbutrin with another SSRI, Zoloft, for 1.5 years. I had taken each of those drugs separately before combining them. I'm sorry to say that, FOR ME, the Wellbutrin never counteracted the sexual dysfunction and general apathy induced by the SSRI. This was true no matter how much Wellbutrin I took or how little Zoloft I took. Later, I combined Celexa, an SSRI, with Dexedrine, an amphetamine. Again, the same thing happened. Celexa completely negated all that was good about the stimulant. This occurred regardless of how much I raised or lowered the Celexa and the Dexedrine. My case might not be that representative of these SSRI+stimulant combos, but for me, they were not only a huge disappointment, but I feel they made me worse. I do not do well on SSRIs regardless of what is added to them. And, for me, the SSRIs destroyed all that was helpful about the meds they were combined with. I don't have anything good to say about SSRIs. I do think that Wellbutrin and other stimulants can do some good in some people, but not when combined with SSRIs.
