Don't you hate when they seem to just shrug you off?
I am taking Wellbutrin SR and am up to 300 mg plus 10 mg Prozac daily. I feel like I am constantly keyed up. I hate feeling on edge all the time. OTOH, I like having energy to do things and my thinking is clearer than it was when I was on Prozac alone.
I am angry with my pdoc because I have GAD and a history of anxiety and panic attacks. Why would she prescribe Wellbutrin when it does nothing for anxiety, in fact increases it?
I feel like I don't enjoy the relaxed feeling I used to get from nursing or cuddling with my little one. I used to feel sooo relaxed nursing her off to sleep. I don't know if this is because of the Wellbutrin or just stress? I think it's the meds. Does this pass? At least the crazy hair trigger anger has lessened for me. But my anger is still close to the surface. That's another reason I went on meds in the first place, I didn't like how my anger was affecting my relationship with my family, esp. dd1 and dh. And my pdoc prescribes this med to me that has a side effect of increasing irritability/anger? Grr.
I guess I could try switching meds AGAIN but I'm going to go back to work in January, and I just want to be stable on something before I go back. Sigh.
ETA - also I have felt like I have little flashes of feelings of hopelessness or despair the odd time. I think it's the meds too, maybe?
When I was on 200 mg I think it was better.... maybe I could do 200mg Wellbutrin and a little bit more Prozac. Anybody else do that? TIA Mamas, please help me feel some hope here.
