sunburnt22 Posted March 21, 2009 Share Posted March 21, 2009 I know this question has been posed before...but what is a good replacement for Wellbutrin XL 150 mg? I switched from generic to brand name. That only helped a little. Wellbutrin XL used to work, but now makes me shaky and anxious, yet I'm dependent on the emotional boost it gives me, and the activating properties of it. First off, I have been on 10 mg Lexapro as my foundation for quite some time and that keeps me stable. But I need an add-on. Some common sense options that I've already tried or considered are... increasing Lexapro dosage (I just get more side effects and no increased benefit) an MAOI (I can't get off Lexapro, no really, it's bad) Wellbutrin IR (does nothing for me, which is weird because I'm very med-sensitive) Wellbutrin SR (for some reason, not nearly as effective as XL) adding on Ativan to Wellbutrin XL (not a bad option, does help, although I'm a little hesitant to basically medicate a side effect) Remeron (way too sedating) Serzone (too sedating) Lamictal (made me extremely anxious, although, this was back before I started Lexapro so maybe it's worth a try as an add-on?)
