What's wrong with me...?

So I've been taking 150mg of Wellbutrin every morning for the last month to control depression. I found that it was working very well when there wasn't as much stress, but the minute something happened that stressed me out it was like major depression again. So today my doc increased my Wellbutrin to 300mg each morning and 1mg of Ativan sub lingual when I feel Im getting stressed out. So I started that today, however its only 8:30pm and I take my wellbutrin in the morning, and I just had such a major depressive episode, haven't had one that bad since they started months ago... could this be due to an increase of wellbutrin or possibly the ativan ontop of the wellbutrin?

Wellbutrin XL and Ativan?

I want my life back--my happiness, but I'm so afraid of the weight gain that is possible with Celexa. I need help.I can't directly go and work out--I get a lot of criticism for trying to workout from my family, although I only do it to increase my endurance. I like how to relieves stress, but my family sees it as me going through an eating disorder. If I try to explain I'm not, they won't believe me.Calorie restriction is also hard. I can't do it because of the people I'm around all day and the constant pressure that I've began to buckle under from them.If you've taken Celexa, how did you keep the weight off? The other antidepressants I've taken: Paxil, Prozac, Zoloft, Lexapro, and Wellbutrin didn't work as well for me as Celexa, so I don't see changing medications as an option.

Will calorie restriction help keep the weight off when I'm on Celexa or other antidepressants?

A month ago, I went into some mode, where my emotion's felt immobilized. I couldn't feel happy, sad, mad, love anything, but fear and anxiety. I thought it was me just having a panic attack and would past in a week. I suffer from depression and social anxiety from a young age, but I never treated it. A week came and went bye, still nothing. So I started to get real scared I check out my symptoms online and I came across Depersonalisation and Derealisation disorder. That really scared me I felt like numb and like a robot so I most have it. They even had a movie about it called Numb!! So I check out the movie and That really did it number to me. It made me think that I will never get over this and be stuck in this forever and I do suffer from one of those disorder. I felt helpless Then a wave of depression symptoms hit me. I didn't know what to do, so I called my local counseling center, they set me up with a crisis center counselor. I went in and told her about my problem she told me it just depression and I need help right away,so they sent me to a mental hospital, where she told me I get good treatment, a good psychiatrist and I would have counseling ever day. Non of that was true!!!!!! It was just take your pills and color all day or sleep. the psychiatrist would be put me down and call me a nutcase because the medication he was giving me was giving really bad side effects. I just felt hopeless, I just cried. those there was three people in my age group and by interacting with them I felt a little better. So I thought I need a life change. Will that been going real bad. So I finally found a good counselor when I got out, and went back at the counseling center for my social anxiety, but I just can't shake this feeling of a numb state. Doctor told me this is the first time I hit a Major depression, but I don't know if I can believe them. I just started taking Wellbutrin , but it has made me feel more like a zombie and increase my panic attacks and making me feel even more spaced out and unreal. I am really scared and can't think straight and don't know if I should still take it. Thanks for reading this.

Am I suffering from Depersonalisation or just depression?

too much. I feel like my mind is racing and feel anxiety ridden. I have nervous energy now, I don't feel myself and still suffer from depression. I have been taking the 300mg for about two weeks, Should i give it a few more weeks or discontinue it? When do you know if the dosage is too high? And Will the anxiety go away? I really don't like feeling this way and think I should just stop taking it. Please Help!

My question is I am on Wellbutrin, my dr. just increased it from 150mg to 300mg. How do you know when its?

I'm 15 years old and my shrink prescribed a 150 mg tablet/day. When i first took it I felt a little weird, and then my stomach muscles really started to hurt. this is the third day i've taken it and i'm noticing difficulties in breathing, and i've increased my depression by a good amount. I've been crying on the daily for no reason and get very irritated to the point where I don't want to even look at people, then getting sad over it. the same symptoms i've had before but multiplied. Help me, I don't know what to do?

I just started taking Wellbutrin XL and I'm feeling a bit odd?

heres my background:im an 18 yr hispanic male. within the last year i have ben diagnosed with depression, bi polar, anxiety disorder, and paranoid schizophrenia. i have attempted suicide twice already. (serious attempts), i have been hospitilized for a week twice, i have had many diff psychiatrists and pyschologist. i have took prozac, klanopin, seroquel, wellbutrin, risperdal, and invega. i graduated at the top of my high school class and im in college now but i am getting worse. heres whats happening now:i feel extremely suicidal. i cant sleep at night. i have gone up to 3 days without an hr of sleep. i seem to sometimes daze out of reality. i have started to self medicate with drugs.(stupid i know) i smoke marijuana regularly as well as cigerettes, mushrooms once, and occasional oxycontin. i bought a whole lot of oxycontin with the single intention of someday using it to commit suicide (overdose) and i still have it. i have a gf i feel ignores me and thus this encourages my suicidal thoughts. i cant concentrate. i sometimes dont want to take my medication and i hate all psychiatrist (i dont want to talk to them). i love sex and porn. when i dont sleep, i dont eat and sometimes ill scratch at my arm with my nails or a key/sharp object. i act very normal around people (they dont notice). theres very few ppl i actually talk to about this. i have a suicide plan. i feel i have 2 diff personalities, a suicidal side and a non suicidal side. i created a figure and character for my suicidal side. i wanted to seperate it from my conscious so i could have something i could actually see becuase i dont feel like its really me. so i created this imaginary person. i named him steve. i know he doesnt exist in reality but he exist in my head. he gets stronger everyday. he tells me to kill myself or do drugs or isolate myself. he convinces me that im all alone here aside from himself. he came up with this plan to do poorly in school (not study, not do hw etc) to assure/increase chance of me commiting suicide, since doing poorly in school is a main trigger to suicidal ideations (as well as gf) i feel as if i dont do good in school, i cant become anything. the plan is working. i am failing most of my classes so therefore i am seriously planning a suicide. the only thing stopping me thus far is fear of hurting my family. steve gave me a day to do it. nov 1. i have given up. i hate steve and my disorder but i love them too. steves appearance consist of a young, confident, relaxed, cool young white male. i only do drugs for 2 reasons. b/c i want to enjoy my last few days. and becuase i feel normal when im high. i dont want to kill myself and steve does not exist when im high. when im depressed i feel a very real deep pain in my heart. it feels like a blackhole. but its not emotional, its almost physical. i dont believe in god. i am an athiest. i am too embarrassed and scared to tell anyone what i am saying now, which is why im only saying it here. i know this isnt the place to seek medical advice but i only want opinions. i would like to know before i die. whats wrong with me? which disorder DO i have? maybe it could help me overcome this soon. i really dont want to die. steve does. plz help. thank you.

What's mentally wrong with me??

Want to preface this by saying I have no liver problems, seizure history, or manic episodes(1).Have read that the effects from all 3 drugs I am on currently, have some advisory warnings related to seizure threshold when combined with wellbutrin(XL 150mg once per day) to be exact. Psychiatrist gave it to me to for 2 reasons 1: quit smoking as the adderall turned me into the marlboro man, so to speak. 2: Adderall seems to have decreased my sex drive(only blatant variable). I can't give up Adderall, because I am doing amazing on it ADHD wise and depression wise, as I am now jacked in, absorbing whatever I have to, instead of getting off track every 30 seconds. My Psychiatrist is obviously aware of everything I am on because she prescribed them to me. My question is: To what certainty can I ascertain that I won't develop seizures? I could do a percentile increase with each variable and see exactly where I would be. So my underlying question would be: Would you take the chance considering the pros and cons?Pros: All pro's are dependent on "if" the drug actually works for me. 1 quit smoking. 2: More intense-frequent orgasms. 3. Trying to get off Benzodiazepines(Xanax) for anxiety and panic attacks. 4. An overall, constant sense of well-being.Cons: Again, how I react to the drug 1. Seizures. 2. Serotonin Syndrome when in combination with an SSRI(Celexa). 3. Death from allergic reaction( not really a concern as I am not allergic to anything I have came across). 4. Any other complications, of which I am not aware. I am not worried about any other side effect (excluding allergic reaction/death) which comes with the territory[hell, nuts can kill somebody,("that's what she said")], because I am accustomed to suicidal thoughts, anxiety, etc.(1) Previously was diagnosed as bipolar, which was incorrect,because of comorbid personality defects associated with untreated ADHD, thus leading to my depression and anxiety, which stemmed from where I was at in my life conflicted with the image I have of myself. I went to the psychiatric hospital after a sudden cessation of my opiate abuse, hydrocodone, to be exact, which can lead to a plethora of acute mood swings, anger, etc. Have learned my lesson with opiates, to be sure.

Adding wellbutrin to celexa, adderall, and xanax.?

I just got a presc. for lamotrigine to treat major depression and mood disorder. She's starting me on only 25mg and increasing in 2 weeks...I do not have seizures...There are many symptoms I'm having but the main one is that I"m constantly overwhelmed with my identity and problems. Also, My emotions rule my life, i'm impulsive. So overwhelmed to stagnation. Multitalented and very creative but can't make anything happen. Short fuze. sleep way too much. PTSD. Borderline personality tendencies. I"m 37, beautiful, intelligent, extremely talented, funny (in groups) athletic, but miserable, depressed, scared to let anyone in my life (abusive relationships almost killed me), and single... Just some backround stuff...I'm scared of this rash that may cause permanent scarring. And I'm scared of hair loss. sounds like it's good for a lot of people with little side effects but the above sound horrible. I've been on a few antidepressants~ Effexor~ hated it!!, Lexapro, Zoloft, WEllbutrin. Do you know if the brand drug has less strange side effects and is better effective? Or is it just that it's bad to start with the brand then go to generic? When I was on brand Effexor then got a script for generic it sucked. But maybe it's ok if you start with generic?

what's your experience with Lamictal or Lamotrigine for treatment of depression?side effects?

I'm about to begin my senior year, and I would like to be able to attend the Senior Ball at the end of the school year. I didn't attend the Junior Prom because I am extremely self-conscious about my weight, so this is a very important goal for me. I am currently around 5 foot 8 to 5 foot 9, and I weigh an embarrassing 259 pounds. On a side note, I am taking Wellbutrin XL for depression (I take 450 mg daily. I've been taking it for roughly three months), and Adderall XR for ADHD (I only started taking Adderall about a week ago, and I'm still trying to find the right dosage. I'm moving from 10 mg daily to 20 mg daily tomorrow, and I will continue raising the dosage until I find the proper amount for my ADHD.) The Wellbutrin had a fairly extreme affect on my appetite during the first week or so after increasing my dosage to 450 mg, which has more or less gone away. The Adderall, however, completely kills my appetite. I feel comfortable/content missing breakfast and lunch everyday, and I usually don't feel hungry until it's time for dinner. Please note that I am not taking Adderall to lose weight - I am taking it because I have ADHD. My first question is this: Can I lose 120 pounds in eight to nine months just by taking my Adderall and eating healthy foods when I do get hungry, or will the appetite suppression wear off the longer I'm on the medication? As far as exercise goes, I plan to start going on walks and riding my bike everyday. I don't have the money to go to a gym, and I don't own any exercise equipment, so walking and riding my bike are pretty much my only options. My main questions are: Will I be able to lose 120 pounds in eight to nine months by eating healthy, exercising (in the way I previously mentioned) and taking my Adderall? Is it possible that I could lose the weight in less than eight to nine months?I'm sorry this is SO long, and I am eternally grateful to anyone who takes the time to read this and help me out. Thanks so much. :)
