Welbutrin + Low Dose Naltrexone + Low Dose Topamax For MS

Welbutrin + Low Dose Naltrexone + Low Dose Topamax For MS

Has anyone else tried this combination of drugs for treating their MS fatigue and pain? I gained over 30 pounds on Cymbalta -- but would do it again because I was in a bad place mentally & physically, and it was a lifesaver. I recently went off it (slowly) and have switched to Welbutrin plus 5MG of LDN and 50MG of Topomax and I have an unbelievable amount of energy. I am losing weight, too, I don't feel like eating like I used to, no real cravings at all. I do eat well -- and healthy -- because… read more

Antidepressants ?

I was just reading article about Fibromyalgia treatments and it stated patients have been given antidepressants that help with pain etc. Seeing sometimes MS has such similar symptoms as fibro I was wondering if anyone here takes antidepressants for MS and if it helps ?

Wellbutrin XL

Wellbutrin XL

Hello everyone 😊
I'm curious to know if anyone has or is experiencing depression but more anxiety issues.

I certainly am and I am 2 weeks into taking Welbutrin XL 150 mg.
Does anyone else take or have you taken this medication?
Did you have any side effects? I'm still not sure if this is right for me.

Do You Suffer From Depression?

Do You Suffer From Depression?

Do you suffer from depression and how many pills do you take for it. My dr had me on three meds for anxiety and depression. I stopped taking Welbutrin. Just dont like taking so many pills.

I understand. Mirtazipine and keeping a diary are a massive help. My mobility and dizziness are my biggest problems, I used to LOVE walking but now it's a massive chore.

Increased Muscle Spasticity On Cymbalta (duloxetine)?

Increased Muscle Spasticity On Cymbalta (duloxetine)?

My primary care doctor recently added Cymbalta (duloxetine) 30mg to the 300mg Wellbutrin I'm already on because I've been experiencing worsened depression. My mood has improved however since starting the Cymbalta I've had increased muscle tightness, clonus/muscle spasms in my lower limbs (when I flex my foot), and stiff ankle joints. I've been on this antidepressant combination before but didn't have these issues nor have they been a recent feature of my MS. Does anyone else with MS on Cymbaltaread more
