Advice from Wellbutrin users

I was on paxil for 4 years for anxiety and depression. Recently I started having major anxiety and depression and so my doctor switched me to lexapro which I have been on for 5 weeks. I really donít feel much better so my doctor just put me on wellbutrin in combination with the 20mg of lexapro. I have only been on the wellbutrin for 2 days. How long did it take for you to start feeling better on wellbutrin? What were you taking it for? Lexapro was the first of these drugs to not have a positive effect on me which is making me feel more depressed, hopeless..any advice?

Re: Advice from Wellbutrin users

I am currently taking 10mg Lexapro and 300mg Wellbutrin XL.

It took about a month to notice any difference.

I was coming off og Effexor at the time. (The docs cut me off in 3 days - it was hell.) I did not feel well for about a month. I have done pretty well with the Wellbutrin, but I do have some breakthrough anxiety from time to time.
