I have been on Wellbutrin XL 300 mg for the past 6 months. Anxiety is still a problem and after some research I began taking 5htp last week. It is still relatively new to say much about it, but I have had MUCH less anxiety in the past 4 days.
In regards to my research, Burprorion/Wellbutrin is a DOPAMINE and NORAPANEPHRINE reuptake inhibitors and 5-htp is a SEROTININ precurser, so the two should not pose a problem.
I definitely would suggest taking it later in the day (afternoon/lunch) if you are taking the time release 5HTP (200 mg)
THE BEST PERSON TO ASK FOR A QUICK ANSWER IS A PHARMACIST. Walgrees is open 24 hours. The Pharmacist knows more about drugs then the doctor
I believe Wellbutrin is kinda a multi purpose drug that is a starter drug, that doesn't do much of anything for real problems. They gave it to me to help quit smoking.
I also take wellbutrin 300mg a day. I asked my pharmacist if it was safe to take 5htp with it and he said yes but take at least 2 hours apart.
I'm taking 450mgs Wellbutrin, 30mg Paroxitine and 30mgs Remeron daily. Plus I've added the Ltyrosine and 900mgs Lithium. Just within the past week I've begun to feel energized. Before I'd limp thru each day just wanting to lay down. This fatigue comes and goes, duration is however it decides to linger.
Hang in there Ramani. It's worth fighting to get a handle on this pest. Doctors don't like it but I do experiment with my meds and herbal supplements. Mind you I never take more than what is prescribed. Times I take the rx's is what I play with.
And for herbs, I swear by Valerian Root for sleeping when RLS visits. Then in the am Ltyrosine is in my mix for a bit more energy. I don't know if this is working or not but it's not doing any harm.
I am hoping that someone can give you an answer to your question because that is the same question I have.
