User Profile
I been on Cipralex for 3 months now and Wellbrutrin for 1 month. I'm presently taking 20mg of the cipralex and 150 of the wellbrutrin. Before I was takeing 300 of wellbrutrin but now my doctor is winning me off it because it was not working. For the last few weeks I been tired every morning even when I have a good sleep and I'm tired also during the day. Can this be caused by one of these medications?

Good day Madam!
Thank you for asking. I am Dr S khan and i would like to help you in your concerns for that fatigue and troubles you have on daily basis.
Madam I want you to know that Yes medicines you mentioned bot have adverse effects of fatigue amongst many. So yes the possibility of drug as a reason for this is obvious.
BUT considering your 203 pounds for just 5 feet 5 inches is severely morbidly obese and something needs to be done about that. As obesity is a hallmark of fatigue.
In Nut shell two management plans. Consult a psychiatrist for readjustment of doses or mentioning the symptoms or adverse effects you are having. Plus also Consider signing up to programs of weightloss approved by FDA . Before its too late.
Good Luck
