I have been diagnosed with Lupus when I work through the pain the worst thig for me is "NO ENERGY".Doc suggested Wellbutrin or Effexor but I always thought that type of medication would just make me more tired.Also I just read you should not take antidepressants if you are on prednisone,which I am.Now I am really confused.Can anyone help me?
Whether or not a antidepressant makes you tired or not differ from med to med and class to class. Wellbutrin (brand name) and Effexor both tend to have a kick to them at least for most people to the point some have difficulty sleeping when taken later in the day. I have very little knowledge on drug interaction so I can't help you. I would think that the doctor who made the suggestion must know what other med you are on.
