    Is it safe to add Lexapro to my medications of Adderall 10 mg and Wellbutrin 300 mg daily?

    Good question. *Disclaimer that this is not medical advice and should be used for information purposes only.* There is a serious interaction between Lexapro and Wellbutrin that you may want to discuss with your physician. You are more at risk if you take doses higher than 300 mg daily of Immediate release Wellbutrin, is greater with XL or SR, take other medications that lower the seizure threshold or if you have a history of seizure disorders or other seizure risk (alcohol use etc.). I referenced 6 different sources. This one explains the interaction in the most detail: http://www.drugs.com/drug-interactions/bupropion-with-lexapro-440-0-1013-565.html. These medications have been used in combination- you should discuss your individual risk with your provider and if you decide to use these medications together should closely watch for any seizure activity and other adverse effects. I hope this is helpful! Best of luck! 🙂 fitnessphoenixx@gmail.com
