So far, so good. I've felt pretty even-keeled for several days now. My commute hasn't been agitating me. I'm pretty chilled out at work. Perhaps the Celexa was the extra kick that I needed and I won't find that I need to take the Ativan.

Today, I'm feeling really tired... could be the Celexa, but it's too soon to tell. I had read to take Wellbutrin in the morning because it can cause insomnia, but if the Celexa causes tiredness, maybe I should take it at night.

No. just Wellbutrin

Back in December, my cardiologist prescribed Wellbutrin SR for me after discussing the impact that anxiety has on my cardiac issue (palpitations, possible valve disorder). I've been taking 150mg since then - it was a starter dose, meant to get me through until I found a new PCP and started our new insurance plan. I finally found a doctor and had a physical today, so we discussed my anxiety in more detail. As a result, we've decided that instead of upping the dose of Wellbutrin, we'd switch me over to Wellbutrin XL for more extended release and we'd add Celexa (just 10mg) as an added boost. It wouldn't be enough to affect my libido, for instance, but it would hopefully be an added kick (since increasing the Wellbutrin could actually cause more anxiety). We've also added in Ativan for flare-ups.

Anyone have experience with the Wellbutrin-Celexa cocktail? If so, how did it affect you?
