off zoloft and wellbutrin

The doctor wanted to take me off Zoloft about 1-1/2 weeks ago, and replaced it with Wellbutrin. This was on a Wednesday, and the following Wednesday I had to prep for a surgery, which required me not to take Wellbutrin.
So it's Sunday night now, and I'm off Zoloft and I decided not to take the Wellbutrin after surgery.

I haven't had any mania and I feel well grounded in reality, and I don't have to deal with side effects.

Is it wise to go off meds? You were in such a bad depression recently weren't you? What does the dr say? Wellbutrin can really help with depression. Concerned for you. Hug

I don't think it's wise in general to go off meds. But in this case it may be alright. We'll see

I was on zoloft before and it didn't do anything for me. Wellbutrin has worked really well for me though. I've been on it about 7 months and this is the best I ever felt.

I was on Zoloft once and it didn't do anything. I was recently on Wellbutrin and found it did a great job with lifting my depression and giving me energy. Problem was it was increasing my manic episodes, so I had to Come off it. Currently on lithium.

Yes. wellbutrin made me so manic, I was chewing my lip like meth or something. No need for coffee.

Please be careful going off meds. Remember that if you need to go back on them that it is ok. There are tons of meds out there so it can be a pain trying to find the right ones but don't give up on that.
