I am on 300mg of Wellbutrin a day and my doctor has prescribed 20mg of Prozac in addition. Is it safe to take these together in the doses prescribed?
I will be glad to help you find an answer. Please give me a minute to research your question.
Will check both for interactions and doses.
Taking these two together may increase the levels (and effects) of Prozac.
The initial dose of 20 mg for Prozac is reasonable.
Is my understanding is correct, you have been on Wellbutrin and the Prozac was introduced recently.
Okay, thanks. I'll be happy to answer any other questions you might have.
One last question on my part.
Were both prescribed by the same physician?
Then, he will monitor and I wouldn't be overly concerned about the interaction. Usually the approach is to start at 20 mg of Prozac and gradually increase. You will likely be receiving more of a effect of the Prozac than that because of the interaction with Wellbutrin but your physician should be monitoring you.
You might mention it to him but I think you'll be okay.
I'd be more concerned if they were prescribed by different physicians.
While I appreciate the opportunity to assist you today, I am a little confused as to your thanking me then providing the rating of "expected more". Was this intended?
I see there are issues with the server scrolling in and out.
If this was rating was intended, please tell me what more is expected to achieve a rating of great service.
Thank you for replying back. The new rating system is confusing. Please provide a rating you are comfortable with. We only receive compensation if rated in the top three categories. If you leave a higher rating now. You can leave the rating you intended now and it will replace the lower rating.
