Re: Wellbutrin or Lexapro?
This question can not be answered as each drug will effect everyone a little bit differently. The meds that may work for me may not work for you due to the difference in brain chemicals and what not.
The average antidepressant is normaly going to take between four to six weeks before the effect is truely felt.
Wellbutrin has a higher level of seizure complaints in people who are prone to seizures otherwise the risk is no different than any other med. From what I have read and have seen Wellbutrin is very quickly becoming the most prescribed med in North America. The biggest problem you hear from Wellbutrin is not Wellbutrin itself but the generic version which is apparently quite nasty at times. My doctor will not prescribe the generic for me so I am lucky enough where the hospital will supply it for me. I have been on it for almost two years with no complaints, well make sure you take it first thing after you get up as it has quite the kick and can screw up your sleep. I know almost nothing about Lexapro but it seems fewer and fewer people are taking it these days
