i was on celexa originally for anxiety about 7 years ago. my doctor decided to just let me be and left me on it until last summer. Last christmas is when a major depressive hit and hasnt really gone away since then. so that summer i saw a psychiatrist and she suggested effexor. started off on 37.5, and went up to 187.5, then i stayed at 150. so i saw the psychiatrist again last week and she wants me to try wellbutrin with the effexor, and slowly take the dose down on the effexor. i havent had any anxiety since a year and a half ago and i think my bf had something to do with that. the psych informed me that the wellbutrin may bring up anxiety again. so i may need to take a small dose of effexor to keep the anxiety away, maybe. i'd like to get just rid of it completely. since that depressive episode began, i havent wanted to have sex ever. last thing on my mind, hence why she suggest i try wellbutrin because of its history with having no sexual side effects. i'm also fed up with having to wait a month to see my gp for perscriptions and what not, so i'm taking this into my own hands. i went to a walk in to get the perscription for wellbutrin SR at 100mg a day so far until my appointment with my GP on the 26th. with being used to being a guinea pig im going to try to wean myself off effexor. starting today im down to 112.5. i feel kind of weird today, but i felt like i was getting sick lastnight, so who knows what its from. i read pages and forums, etc etc about how evil effexor can me. any suggestions or opinions would be gladly appreciated. im looking for ways to fill up what im missing from meds, like yoga, going to gym 3-4 times a week which ive been doing for 3 months and im going to be seeing a naturapath or whatever on the 19th. ive also read that some people havent been able to eat while on effexor, but i've gained weight on it. its the devil.
