Wellbutrin and Psilocybin
Dec 1, 2000

I was just put on a Wellbutrin prescription (150mg/day) as a remedy for ADD and mild depression. Having read that this drug reduces the threshold for seizures, would I be strongly advised against the of psychadelic drugs (mushrooms) while on this medication (above and beyond any general objections to their use)?

Response from Dr. Henry

This forum is for persons who are HIV infected (or their caregivers) to ask questions about side effects of drugs or signs/symptoms of HIV infection. You don't mention what is your HIV status and which HIV drugs you are on. Some of the HIV drugs should be used with caution when Wellbutrin is also being prescribed. KH

Keith Henry, M.D.
