    Wellbutrin/Effexor- side effects & sex drive

    Hey there

    I was put on 150mg/day Wellbutrin 5 days ago in combination with the 225mg/day Effexor I take. My psychiatrist put me on wellbutrin due to my lack of sex drive caused by Effexor.

    Just wondering a few things:
    1) What side effects should I expect from Wellbutrin?
    2) Is the risk of seizures something I should be concerned about? Has anyone had a seizure due to Wellbutrin??
    3) Is anyone else is on this combo (Wellbutrin & Effexor) and how do you find it?
    4) Is anyone on Wellbutrin for lack of sex drive? What have you experienced as far as sex drive goes? (increased? decreased? no change? etc)

    Any comments would be greatly appreciated cuz I'm a little apprehensive about being on "more drugs"
