adderall and wellbutrin
I have been on adderall xr 20 mg and wellbutrin SR 50mg for a few months now.  I have an eating disorder, OCD, ADD, depression and a general anxiety disorder.  My psychiatrist and I recently decided that I would stop the wellbutrin and go up to 25 mg of Adderall.  It has been 3 days now and I am finding that I am extremely "stuck" in my own thoughts/fantasies, I feel like I am living in a dream world and have no motivation.  Could this be due to the discontinuation of the wellbutrin or the increase in adderall?  I feel like I am not truly experiencing life.  How long does this confused/dizzy feeling last?  Also, I am afraid because the last time I discontinued wellbutrin I started to binge eat (something I never do as I have anorexia).

A lot of side effects disappear within a few weeks of continued amphetamine use, however, when people become overly pre-occupied with a task (over focused or inflexible) or are described as "zombie-like", a dose reduction is usually required.
