    Wellbutrin and Dexedrine

    Hello,

    Can anyone tell me about supplementing Dexedrine will Wellbutrin?

    Will using Wellbutrin in conjunction with Dex help to slow down the build up of tolerance to the Dex dosage?

    I've heard people say that this is a really nice combo. Any thoughts?

    Thank you,

    Sarah

    Dexedrine is a dopamine re-uptake inhibitor. Dopamine is an intermediate to adrealine; Wellbutrin is a norepinephrine reuptake inhibitor; norepinephrine is basically adrenaline. I'm sure adding Wellbutrin will give the dex a kick in the pants, however, eventually tolerance can become an issue anyway down the line. Adrenaline is the chemical responsible for anxiety and panic attacks, so be careful...

    I've been on the Wellbutrin/Dexedrine combo for a long time; it has worked very well for me. I do believe they have a synergistic effect, but I don't know if the Wellbutrin slows the possibility of Dexedrine tolerance. Good question!

    ........ummm actually I've just found out that Wellbutrin hasn't been approved for prescription in the UK!

    It's available as Zyban, but only as a prescription to aid giving up smoking. Not as an anti-depressant and certainly not for ADD.

    So that's the end of that then I guess!
