Went to pdoc and requested to reduce Vraylar to 1.5 and start wellbutrin. She agreed but did not want me to do both at the same time because either could cause psychosis and she wanted to know the cause in the event it does happen.
She wanted to try wellbutrin first but I decided that I wanted the med reduction first because im trying to find that happy place where I enjoy things more again. Plus I suspect it may be influencing poor blood sugar.
So, this week I will be going from 3mg vraylar down to 1.5 and, if all goes well will be starting wellbutrin on next appt in 7 weeks.
Good luck! I hope you feel like you’re enjoying things again.
I took vraylar and it didnt help at all but I was told by a few doctors I’m hard to treat as far as Wellbutrin it’s one of the only antidepressant that doesn’t make me manic or severely anxious but i think lamictal is the one helping it saved my life I wouldn’t be alive without lamictal I was inevitably gonna “off myself” but now I’m happy and love life to a degree
Wellbutrin made me angry and mean.
Also Wellbutrin blocks nicotine receptors in the brain, its used to aid smoking cessation. So if you’re a smoker, you won’t feel the pleasure from nicotine anymore, thats what happened to me.
Good luck Im also planning on trying wellebutrin after i lower my invega
Wellbutrin works well for me in relation to my depression, it does help a little for the negative symptoms.
Keep us updated on how everything goes sir Bowens!
Vraylar caused me to have psychosis.
I became highly delusional and paranoid and was sent to the psych hospital involuntarily for 5 weeks.
It was a nightmare
Thanks @Wave . Sorry to hear that.
I’m supposed to slowly get off clozapine and go on Vraylar…was optimistic about it…my pdoc really thinks it will do well for me
Now I’m wondering…
3>1.5 mg is a big jump to make at once imo, hope it works out
