Anyone on Lexapro AND Wellbutrin XL?

Just added the Wellbutrin XL to try to give me more energy and help with the weight gain from the Lexapro.

Would love to hear from people who are taking both.

Thank you!

Juani, I just know it's the Lexapro because before I could get it off easier and didn't feel THIS BAD.

Re: Anyone on Lexapro AND Wellbutrin XL?

I, too, just added Wellbutrin XL b/c I have gained 20 lbs in 6 months!!! Plus, I am a newly-wed and the "low sex drive" side affect is not sitting too welll with him! My doc says that WXL will help with both of these side affects.

However, I would like to only be on one med...anyone taking WXL to REPLACE Lexapro??

Kristen, you could do that...well at least I have, but during stressful times the Wellb. isn't enough and I go back on Lexapro.
