  • Wellbutrin, just like other antidepressants, can increase your anxiety at first. Within a few weeks, I noticed a difference in my mood and outlook. I also have much less anxiety now that I am a month or so in that I had prior to starting.

  • Take it regularly-don't skip and don't quit too soon. Like depression the effects slide gently up on you - no "bang, I'm better"

    Depression
  • As with other antidepressants, Bupropion will take time to kick in. However, it works differently from SSRI's, so for someone with ADHD, like me, this was a good option because it worked cooperatively with my Adderall, not against it.

  • I transitioned to generic Wellburin from generic Zoloft because Zoloft was interfering in my sexual response, mostly inability to orgasm. For this purpose the Wellbutrin work, but it leaves me anxious and irritable. I'm trying something els

  • Took a very long time for this to start working, and I felt worse for about 5-6 weeks, but after that it gradually helped more and more. Now it is very effective, but missing a day can throw a wrench in your progress. Worth it overall.

    Depression
  • Lowest available dose in XL. Don't THINK I had side effects. Definitely helped alleviate depression and let me use more initiative for exercise and other antidepressant activity

    Depression
  • I was first put on 150s which seemed to make a mild difference. Moving up to 300 6 months later was amazing. I feel like me- I don't feel fake or drugged up.

  • Almost no negative side effects for me, seemed different than the SSRNI, and SSRI classes of drugs.

  • I'm prescribed Wellbutrin for ADHD as well as depression. I'm usually pretty disorganized, but I find myself cataloging and organizing things when I take it. It makes me feel sharper.

    Depression
  • Wellbutrin turned me into a monster! Replaced my depression with fierce, irrational anger. Became violent. Made me resistant to pain and unusually strong, so I kept breaking work equipment by accident. Had to stop taking it.
