Is it safe to take Zyban (Wellbutrin) and Sertraline together. PLEASE READ?
I stopped taking my sertraline 4 days ago (Tuesday 7th) and started taking 150mg of Wellbutrin a day which will increase to 2 a day in a weeks time.
I have been getting severe side effects from the sudden withdrawal of Sertraline. Anxiety, nightmares, heart flutters etc and want to take a small dose of Sertraline to stop this and wean myself off it gradually HOWEVER, i have read that there is a major interaction when taking the drugs together. ie possible seizures. A pharmacist confirmed this last night BUT i have just spoke to an NHS duty doctor who said that he couldnt find an interaction and it will be ok to take together.
I dont know what to do for the best. Do i take a small dose of Sertraline to help with the withdrawal symptoms? If I do i MAY be increasing the risk of having a seizure!
