  • Wellbutrin??

    Anyone taking wellbutrin? I just started on it yesterday. Wellbutrin SR 150 twice/day.

    Wondering if you had any of the side effects and did it help with your moods and depression?
    I was on Prozac for 4 yrs. and experienced weight gain and lately the 60mg/day didn't seem to help me anymore with my depression/mood.

    Any info would be great....TY

  • yes,

    I have been on Wellbutrin for 7 months now. but i take the XL version that is 300mgs a day on a time release. i love it more than anything. no weight gain, in fact there's weight loss (for me anyway) and no other real side effects that i've noticed. good luck!

    • Wellbutrin

      I have been on Wellbutrin for a few years now and I have had a very positive experience. I do reccommend getting the extended release as it cuts back on the weird dreams and grogginess (the only side effects I have ever experienced). I have never noticed an impact on my weight or libido and this drug has done wonderful things for helping me get my chronic anxiety under control.
      Best of luck, I hope you have similar positive results


      • WellbrutenXL is wonderful. And no weight gain or sexual side effects that we noticed. It helped me when I needed it. Watch out when you quit Prozac. I never used it but it was suggested and I did some R&D... Scary stuff when you come off it too quick.

        Wellbruten is much better from everything I've read. **Assuming it works for your case.
