My girlfriend takes 300mg of Wellbutrin XL per day and its not working to well for her. I went with her to her prdoc last week and told the doc that the Wellbutrin isn’t working and she added Lithium to the Wellbutrin XL. I wan in hopes she would change my girlfriends medication altogether. So far Wellbutrin is the only antidepressant my girlfriend has been on. She has been taking it for several months now. I would think she would want to try her on something else.
I'm Bipolar and take several meds - Wellbutrin and Lithium are two of them. One thing that I can say is that Wellbutrin does a great job of helping with the sexual side effects that I feel from the other meds. Wellbutrin isn't "enough" for me for depression though - I take Zoloft, too. I've taken several anti-depressants so I can understand why you might want your girlfriend to try something else. Is she Bipolar? Lithium usually is for those with Bipolar Disorder.
