I have depression/anxiety/OCD;on Wellbutrin SR now;wondered if could take it in a.m. and Prozac in p.m. to avoid gastric problems when taken in a.m.

I have taken Prozac before

I have taken Prozac before and after the rash and gastric problems stopped, it was great for my mood and OCD and depression. (Atenolol probably helped w those symptoms.)

Newer pdoc put me on Wellbutrin which is energizing but difficult to sleep through the night (Klonopin pooped out on the sleep) and also am anxious and intrusive thoughts (embarrassing incidents bothering me more and more.)

Has been several years on generic Wellbutrin and want to add Prozac, low dose, to see if anxiety lessens. Gastric problems (diarhea) when taking 10 mg Prozac in a.m. with cramping.

Prozac seems to make me sleepy. Thought I'd try it at nighttime to help w sleep and also to make stomach distress in daytime less.

Think the Prozac would help in the p.m. w my OCD and also reduce the gastric if taken in the evening?

Took Wellbutrin for 8 weeks

Took Wellbutrin for 8 weeks to stop smoking, prescribed by my general physician. It definitely worked for me, along with behavioral-cognitive stop-smoking programs. Had similar side-effects; very alert and jittery at night, periodic trembling of the hands. What works well for me is the combination of therapy and drug treatment. I prefer the therapy, due to the side effects of many drugs, or to keep drugs to the smallest effective dose for a minimal time period. Hope you find a combination that best works for you.
