Glad I found this forum.
I have been on mirtazapine for like 3 years (to help with my severe tinnitus), and it's working fine.
I was on sertraline for the same amount of time
That combination was working AWESOME! until about 3 months ago.
My doctor took me off of that and put me on Lexapro. Lexapro didn't take all of the edge off of my anxiety, so he added wellbutrin.
After my 'honeymoon' days 3,4, it was back to the grind.
On day 9,10 (yesterday/day b4) I was doing really well! Today is day 11, and I did not have a good day.
Overall, I would say I am getting better like 5% per day, excluding today. I know that tweaking meds is a pain, but like another post I found
I have never taken Bupropion but have been on other meds over the years. With me, the meds need to be 'tweaked' about every seven to ten years. Even though I know it is necessary, I hate the tweaking process. (Grrrr.... Enough said.) When the new drugs/dosages are finally sorted out, it is always worth it. I have learned to keep reminding myself of how good the end result will feel while enduring the tweaking.
The nurse at the office said it should take about 2 weeks for the transition . . .
Wondering is this is normal, or should I look into asking my doc for another alternative?
Thanks for reading :)
