Is it okay to take Wellbutrin and Zoloft at the same time?
Hi, there. Yes, it can - I've done it. However, I wasn't on Zoloft too long because I got incredibly numb right away, which was not how I wanted to live, so got switched to Lexapro, which has seemed to be a better match for me. I've been on Wellbutrin for years. Thanks for writing in and let us know if you have any other questions.
I know you posted this a long time ago, but I was wondering if you found a combination that worked for you. I would love to hear about your effective treatment options.
Wellbutrin is commonly paired with other antidepressants with few side effects. For more on this, you can check out these articles on our site:

Hope you are well!
I was on Wellbutrin for several years when I started having breakthrough spells of depression again. So my psychiatrist added Zoloft. And it helped. I've been taking the two together for maybe 2 years now. No side effects, no problems, but I wish I were taking less medicine overall. Once you start taking something it can be hard to find a stopping place.
But certainly -- take both if you need them.
