Wellbutrin or Cipralex?
« on: 25/07/2010 19:49:08 »
Hi all

I sometimes suffer from depression.

About 5 years ago I had a terrible bout of depression, my doctor put me on cipralex and I was ok after 3 months and doctor told me I could stop.

Recently in the last month or so, my depression has returned and now my doctor has put me on Wellbutrin XL 150mg. I feel like a zombie but that is ok because I have only been taking it for a week and it takes a while to work.

My question is : should I continue the Wellbutrin and hope it works, or should I go back to Cipralex because I know that did work for me....

Hi, sorry to hear you are suffering again. Give the Wellbutrin another week and see how it goes, your Doc will recommend you give it longer than that but I think 2 weeks is enough to know if it really will affect you adversely.
Personally I would consider going back on the Cipralex, it is a good drug and can make the world of difference. If you know it works for you, and the Wellbutrin really isnt doing it, then go back on it.

I hope you feel better soon  :)
