Hi, I was taking Zoloft (75 mg) for 4 months and requested to switch to something else due to extreme fatigue, weight gain, and other side effects. My doc just prescribed Wellbutrin XL (150mg) to begin. First, I am to take Zoloft at 50mg for one week then down to 25 mg for the next week before I can begin my Wellbutrin.
My first question: is this the proper way or recommended schedule to wean off Zoloft? Can I cut down even further and shrink the two weeks to get off Zoloft into just one?
And question two: Is is possible to begin Wellbutrin already while still on a low dose of Zoloft? I am already experiencing extreme mood swings at 50 mg (or maybe I'm just imaging it).
Thanks for your help!
