I just got back from my annual med review with my Crazy Doctor. He says that it sounds like the Lexapro I am on is helping with the anxiety/OCD/panic, but would like to add in a very, very low dose of Wellbutrin to give me back some energy and sex drive. So let's chat about Wellbutrin, shall we? Anyone on it? Can I drink on it? (I do drink with my Lexapro--although when I take my klonopin/lorazepam I don't) Will it make me all jazz hands? Will I actually have a sex drive again?
I've been on the Lexapro now for two years...I tend to have strong reactions to drugs--runs in the family--and it took a while to adjust to it, but am tolerating it well now. Except for it doesn't ENTIRELY control the depression (although is great for the anxiety/panic and OCD--which were REALLY what was killing me), and like I pointed out...obliterated my sex drive. I am wondering is it worth adding the Wellbutrin to try for 100%...or should I stick to "not so bad" with just the lexapro alone...?
To clarify, he's looking at the Wellbutrin to give me back some energy, and to give me back a sex drive. I'm not ELIMINATING the Lexapro. My main concerns are that the Wellbutrin will make me twitchy, and that I can't drink on it. I do love my beer and wine, and I'd really hate to give it up (like I said, I have no problems with it on the LExapro).
