I Sought Out A Dr When I Started Having Trouble
Melatonin can be useful as well...
Welcome to 'Ask A Doctor' service.
You have sleep issues as well as anxiety and weakness. Wellbutrin has helped you and proven to be more beneficial than Zoloft. You can continue with it.
If anxiety and sleep issues were relieved by hydroxyzine, I think there is no harm to continue it for the time being.
You can also use melatonin for sleep issues. It is mostly available OTC.
Go for hydroxyzine,(maybe from another doctor) if available.
Can try melatonin.
Hope this helps.
Sorry for the delayed response.
For the issues like restlessness, twitching, flashbacks, you can practice relaxation exercises like deep breathing and meditation.
In my opinion, you should continue with wellbutrin and may increase the dose if these symptoms increase (after discussing with your prescribing doctor).
Hope this helps.
Not serotonin syndrome
The side effects of Zoloft can not be reversed by wellbutrin. However, it may help you in your anxiety. These are not the symptoms of serotonin syndrome. And should go away on their own in another 2 weeks. But these may also be separate symptoms from side effects of Zoloft.
The only way which is free from any side effects is relaxation exercises. You can try progressive muscle relaxation. This should help.
Hope you get well soon.
Continue your exercise regime
There is no medication to control these 'leftover' side effects which you are feeling right now. If well button is being given to control this, then it's not a right approach because it might not help.
The only thing you can do is to continue with your exercise regime and wait for these symptoms to go away.
All the best.
