  • 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"

  • 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.

  • 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

  • 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.

  • 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.
