Already taking Effexor XR, Dr. added Welbutrin XL

Hi Everyone,

I suffer from depression due to a severe case of RSD (Reflex Sympathetic Dystropy). I went to my doctor last week who prescribes my depression medication. I was already on Effexor XR 225mg a day at night. He added Welburtrin XL 150 mg - 1 in the morning.

I was wondering if anyone else has ever been on both of these together? If so, was there any side-effects? If you have only taken the Effexor XR, did it make you gain weight? I have been dealing with my depression for 6 years now. However, I have only been on the Effexor XR for about 2 years.

Any feedback would be appreciated.

God Bless,
