  • On several medications. Have experience anxiety, depression, and low energy for many years. My doctor has just recently placed me on cymbalta for anxiety and wellbutrin for energy and is wanting to gradually take me off zoloft. Today I felt very weird. Light-headed, very jittery (like I was on speed or something). I took a nap and when I got up I felt nausea as well.

    I have also had low energy and depression for many years. Two years ago my psych put me on Ritalin after diagnosing me with ADHD. At that time I was on Zoloft, I believe, which wasn't working. so he put me on Wellbutrin several months ago. I have lost 35 to 40 pounds in the last year and a half and have lost 2 -3 lbs. just in about 5 days. My family believes it's from Ritalin and/or the combination with Wellbutrin. However, I didn't start losing weight until 7 months after I began Ritalin. I also have most of the symptoms of Lupus so just wondering if anyone else has experienced this.
