    I've been on celexa quite awhile, and even though it has helped my anxiety issue's found myself tired, which contributed to my anxiety. We added bupropion in the a.m and late afternoon, and it has made a significant improvement in my energy level over the last couple of years.

When I started taking bupropion for the first week or so I had a lot of trouble sleeping, I w ... Show Full Comment
