150 to 300mg? O.O - February 23rd 2010, 03:11 PM

Hi, I'm taking Celexa and Welbutrin or however u spell them. I was on 150 but my psychiatrist told me to start taking 2 of them every morning. Last time i was told to double up, when i went from 20 to 40 of the celexa, I ended up in the hospital for wanting to kill myself. The celexa was by a different Psych then the one I have now so, idk if that matters or not.

I guess I'm just worried. Will that happen again? And how do I stop it if it does happen? Isn't 150 to 300 a big jump??

If you have problems with your medications, go directly to the hospital. Although, I hope it all works out for the best.

Don't be afraid to share your concerns with your doctor about your medication and the increase of mg. They're there to answer your questions.

Honestly, if you have and concerns or questions about your medications you should ask your therapist or the one who prescribed them to you. Since, they probably have a reason for doing so and should be able to explain it to you or answer any questions.

Take care. x

Does this psychiatrist know that last time you had that trouble? Personally, I would do it and if you do start having bad side effects or something, you should go back or go to the ER asap.

Hey there,

It is quite normal for medication to be increased. Sometimes the best way of dealing with a mental health issue is to stop it getting worse before you start the recovery process. I would definitely mention the other issues that you have had with that medication and see if they can put you on something different.

Let us know what happens!!

Definitely mention your concerns to your doctor. Based on personal experience, SSRI's like Celexa seem to have greater effects upon changing dose. I started on just 10mg of Zoloft. The first night, I couldn't sleep at all, had serious thoughts of suicide followed by mania and intense religious "delusions," had to call my parents and eventually withdrew from uni for a semester. I started wellbutrin a few months ago and the psychological side effects have been much less noticeable, physical side effects are more intense but less troubling (for me, increased appetite, nausea, oversleeping...seems to be paradoxical but w/e). I know high dose wellbutrin carries a higher risk of seizure, but it's probably only something to worry about if you have a history of that. Again, though, definitely talk to your dr. about your concerns, I'm a wikipedia md at best.
