Answered Welbutron and Coffee?? 7 years ago

Wellbutrin is typically associated with anxiety, insomnia, and jitters, which caffeine can exacerbate. There are people who can fall asleep after drinking coffee, but the fact that you're not staying asleep is an issue.

Watching television and being online can be too stimulating before bedtime, and the light emitted can interfere with your circadian rhythms. Make sure your bedroom is quiet and free from distraction and clutter.

With the medications you're taking, always stay in touch and consult your physician or healthcare providers about the time of day you're taking it, etc. Certain medications are stimulating and may be better taken during the day.
