I've been taking Pristiq 100mg and Wellbutrin 150mg per day

Customer Question

I've been taking Pristiq 100mg and Wellbutrin 150mg per day for 1 and 1/2 years. Did okay for a long time but had a few down days each month where my mood seemed to dip. The past 2 weeks I have been experiencing increased anxiety and a dip in my mood that has lasted longer than before. Should I discontinue these drugs and try something else? I did really well on Effexor xr but it made me tired. Right now I feel like I would be willing to deal with the tiredness.

Dr_Anderson :

Greetings! Thank you for your question. Have you ever been higher than 150 mg on the Wellbutrin?

Dr_Anderson :

If you have not, typical the most logical place to start would be to increase the Wellbutrin, presuming you have never been higher and there are no contraindications to doing so.
