    Symbyax 12/50mg & Wellbutrin XL 150mg

    Currently on Symbyax 12/50mg for my bipolar disorder. Complained to doctor that my sex drive was gone completely. He prescribed Wellbutrin XL 150mg a day and said that would help my sex drive. Has anyone every heard of this combination of anti depressants? The doctor said it was the prozac in the Symbyax that was causing it. I could either stop the current Symbyax and go to Zyprexa or do the Wellbutrin XL.

    I know doctors often use a cocktail of meds together. Many of the antidepressants can decrease the sex drive. I know of two that usually will not Welbutrin and Effexor.
    Zyprexa can cause significate weight gain for some people. To answer you question no I havent heard of the combo you were prescribed but that doesnt mean it wont work. If it doesnt before you go back to your next appointment hit the board again looking for other med suggestions, what's been most helpful to others and their side effects of them. Good Luck, Wishing you Warm Holdiay Memories!
