 4  Depression (situational) At first I couldn't stay asleep, but I was taking it before bedtime. Once I switched to mornings, I was ok. It did seem to make me more agitated at first, which I'm dealing with high anxiety so I had to offset that reaction with Buspirone (15mg 3x/day) All that was fine, but what I deal with daily is the feeling that my throat is closing. I feel like someone has their hand around my throat. When my anxiety is high (which can be often) it's even worse. I feel like I can't breathe sometimes or that something is stuck. If it didn't work so well I would get off of it but I deal with this side effect bc I see results. I tried Celexa & Effexor, quit both within 1-2 weeks, the side effects were awful (esp sexual side effects) Wellbutrin I feel gets me out of bed each day. I don't have tons of energy, still can get groggy by early evening. I haven't had any appetite difference. I do have headaches often but I always have so not sure this is due to the Wellbutrin. I don't have crying episodes like I was. The situation I'm dealing with took a major toll on my personality & mood. I am angry/sad all the time. Have outbursts & crying epdisodes (which are to be expected) but feel they are more manageable as time goes on. I am struggling with the throat issue but dealing bc I think otherwise it works well.

 1  depression Shortly after i started welbutrin i became extremely paranoid,extremely moody, and stoped sleeping. When i would sleep id wake up at about 3am and stay up all day. At first i couldnt place why i was so paranoid and the feelings i had were very real to me. Welbutrin almost destroyed my relationship with my boyfriend. I started accusing him of cheating, of not caring and loving me enough. When i play the last six months back in my head i remember my boyfriend telling me that there was something wrong with my thinking and that i had changed. I became very mean to him and wanted to fight day and night sometimes to the point of wanting to b violence, thank god i never did. I was going crazy. I went from being a very happy loving person to a paranoid angry that never slept and im sure not sleeping made things worse. I thank god my man didnt give up on me even though at times i know he wanted to, he just kept saying honey there is something wrong with you and you need to figure it out. Well it took me six months to do so and nearly ruined my life. I sat and began to think when it was that i started to change and what i came up with was it all started about the same time i started the welbutrin, so i got on line and typed in can welbutrin cause paranoia? What i came up with shocked me. All the symptoms i had were right in front of me and as i read othe people's stories i started to cry. I cryed to two reasons one being i was angry that it went on for so long and nobody could tell me F 33 6 months

 1  Severe depression My boyfriend has been taking this drug now for quite some time. At first it seemed to work. He seemed happier, had a better attitude, less anger. His concentration level was much better. Everything was going great. But we are now about five months in and I am scared. He is a mess. Wants to sleep all the time. Has completely disconnected himself from me and our children. His anger is back but it is accompanied by a great sense of "I don't give a f***". He is foggy headed and very dramatic about how it is that he perceives daily encounters with people. The slightest noises send him over the edge. He wakes up at about two in the morning and stays awake for at least an hour because he can't sleep. He has no pleasure in anything but work (and even the I don't think he is very happy with that). Wants to be alone all the time, when he is honestly a great people person. He has an appointment to see his doctor in a week, and because he isn't hurting himself or anyone else (even though I'm scared for him and can't reach him because I am nothing but an annoyance to him at the moment) they won't push the appointment ahead any sooner. Does this sound even remotely close to anything anyone else has experienced on this drug?? I urge STRONG CAUTION in trying any psychiatric medication, this one, or any at all, and proper knowledge of changes to your mental state and how to seek help at the first signs!!! Because as much as the people around you love you, they can't do it for you! M 37 5 months

 1  Depression and anxiety Nausea, headaches, severe mood swings (super happy to suicidely depressesed), severe sensitivity to sounds- even quiet chatter, couldn't concentrate, apathy, extreme paranoia, constant need to sleep- even when I wasn't tired, severe panic attacks that lasted days instead of an hour or two, constant insomnia, extreme fluctuations in body temperature, my feelings shifted from ravenous hunger to vomiting at the thought of food. Thank god my family was looking out for me and took me back into the doctor. He stopped the Wellbutrin immediately. I thought my anxiety and depression were just overcoming me, I didn't realize everything I was going through was a severe side effect of the Wellbutrin. I have been off of it for a little over a week and I am finally beginning to feel a bit more normal. I thought I was losing my mind. I have never been so close to checking myself into the hospital for a psychological evaluation before- I was terrified of what was happening to me. I will never take another drug without reading the side effects first. Be careful when taking this medication. Make sure you have someone you trust watching out for any unusual behavioral changes you might experience. For a lot of people this medication works wonders, but make sure you are discussing any changes in your mood with your doctor. F 36 5 months

 1  anxiety/depression I was on 20 mg of lexapro for about 2 years. All of a sudden it stopped working, and I gained about 15 lbs in 4 months. My doctor decided to switch me to the generic of wellbutrin. I also take meds for hypothyroidism. I started with 150 mg for the first three days and the first day I didn't feel any different. I could already start to feel the effects by the second day...And they were not good. Once I moved up to 300mg of felt absolutely awful. I was nervous and my whole body felt jittery. I could not sleep for about the first two weeks...And eating? Well forget about it! I was constantly sick to my stomach and would throw up several times a day. With in the first two weeks I lost 10lbs. I had horrible constipation, but I will spare the details! My head felt like it was in a constant fog and I couldn't focus in anything. It also gave me horrible headaches. I know it can take a while for an antidepressant to work so I'm trying to hold out. My doc lowered my dose back to 150 mg a day, but I am still throwing up atleast once a day. My moods are crazy! Sometimes I just want to cry all day, and other days I am just plain mean. I just want to feel normal again!! My doctor said we might have to change my meds again, and that terrifies me because that means hell starts all over again. At this point I feel so bad every day it's like I'm living in a constant hell...so what could it hurt to try another one! Right? I really wanted this one to work because of the low sexual side effec F 28 1 months

 4  Adhd, depression I used wellbuturin with 150 mg of effexor xl. The first week on it I felt the honeymoon stage which I had a little euphoria and was able to get up and go in the morning with a lot of motivation. It works good for my adhd but at times I felt moody, paranoid, sensitive to sound and tight muscles. I believe most of those side effects just mentioned had a lot to do with mixing energy drinks and coffee The moodiness is from not getting a good night sleep. Emotionally I feel more "love" for people, organized, and can concentrate. I think this drug helps most with motivation and concentration for me. Side effects dissapear with no caffeine use and a good night sleep. F 35 1 months

 5  Depression When I started bupropion in addition to the fluoxetine I'd been on, within 2 days I had side effects of chattering teeth (no chilled feelings though), general shakiness (handwriting got terrible), pretty significant loss of appetite, and worsened my already present insomnia. Also, my eyes would randomly become dialated as if I was high as a kite. It was a lot of weird side effects, but they did go away after a couple weeks. I find that the medication is worth it, it did a great job of regulating me and I feel like I was let of tiny cage ever since it kicked in, it's awesome to feel human again. F 26 10 months

 4  Depression Oddly enough, I actually gained weight while I took this. The one side effect that is not expected. Good for me though - I lose weight when depressed. It does cause pretty bad sweating in my hands during the day and all over while I sleep. So bad that I have to get up and change clothes so it disrupts my sleep. No other complaints from me. Easy to take as far as antidepressants go and very easy to come off of it if you need to. No head buzzing like Paxil or Cymbalta. Really helps with depression for me. I have taken it two different times in my life and both treatments started to help significantly within two weeks although I felt a bit better before that. Helps with overall anxiety, helped my appetite, no sexual side effects and no nausea. Does cause terrible night sweats but most of them do for me. Pretty happy with it. F 42 2 years

 1  Depression I took Wellbutrin for about 2 months or so when I suddenly had a Grand Mal Seizure and was taken to the hospital by ambulance. I have never had a seizure before this. I also have a rare spinal cord disorder called Syringomyelia, so I spent 3 days in the hospital because when I had the seizure I fell off the couch while convulsing and with my spinal condition they took it very seriously! The doctors determined that the seizure was caused from the Wellbutrin cause it was the newest medicine I had been taking. This was the first depression med that I had took that didn't make my head feel weird, so I thought I finally found something that I could take with out all the bad side effects, boy was I wrong. My doctors all decided that I shouldn't take ANY type of anti-depressants cause none of them agree with my body!! Just be careful when taking anything like Wellbutrin. F 32

 4  Depression I am currently taking this medication. I am coming off of Effexor XR 150mg and having a hard time of it. Wellbutrin is helping to lessen the horrible withdrawal and is curbing my appetite and giving me more energy. I am not eating emotionally like I used to. While I am not severely overweight, I have already begun losing weight. It does cause me some dizziness if I don't take it around the same time every day, but so far through the withdrawal I am seeing positive changes. F 22 2 weeks

 2  depression Anxiety, energy, abnormal behavior, tension, increased depression, crying to the point of hysteria, severe headache that did not respond to otc painkillers and persisted until I stopped taking it, mood swings, emotional numbness, irrational thoughts, severe insomnia I started taking it to supplement Prozac. I had very little energy and wanted something to give me a little extra do-ativeness First day I felt very ADD, couldn't focus on anything. I wasn't acting normal. My boyfriend complained that I was very distant and not 'present' when we were together (though my behavior didn't feel strange to me). I had severe anxiety, started clenching my jaw constantly (had to get a mouth guard to keep from grinding my teeth at night), and the tension gave me a headache that only vicodin helped soothe. Finally stopped taking it after two weeks because my boyfriend was so upset by the change in my behavior. I had to promise him I'd never take it again while we are together or risk destroying the relationship-which is a LOT more important than a little extra energy. F 27 2 weeks

 4  depression, SAD Tinninitus, After working through 3 SSRI's (zoloft, Effexor, Lexapro), my Dr and I finally settled on Wellbutrin for the last 10 years. While SSRI's let me get a good nights sleep, felt a little zombi-like, and made it almost impossible to orgasm. Wellbutrin also normalizes my sleep, and ability to orgasm is back to normal. I know Wellbutrin is leveling my sleep, because I have tried to stop several times over the years, and my sleep very quickly goes to insomnia. 150mg stops me from hopeless crying, and improves my depression down to low, from medium, but does not cure it entirely. When I tried 200mg, I started to feel buzzed and agitated. Went back to 150. Did not experience any headache on Wellbutrin, but a constant killer headache on Effexor. I started this journey 15 years ago with panic attacks and Zoloft to stop them. As soon as I got a stable nights sleep, panic attacks stopped, and my dispair improved. I have stayed on depression meds ever since, for me Wellbutrin has turned out to be best. M 58 10 years

 4  Depression Slight agitiation at the start, which improved over time Like another reviewer mentioned, be careful about the dosage you're taking. There's regular Wellbutrin, Wellbutrin SR (sustained release) and Wellbutrin XL (extended release). Having taken the once-a-day XL in the past, I failed to notice my new prescription was for SR. I was taking 2 pills at once, rather than 1 pill twice a day. No wonder it wasn't working as well as the first time! Good results now that it's all sorted out. F 44 3 months

 3  Depression It helped when I needed it. Insomnia, loss of appetite, weight loss(went from 29 to 26 inches around my waist in 5days), dry mouth. Learned to force myself to eat within the first 10 days. My suicidal thoughts were reduced into merely cutting myself 3 times when panicking. Increased panic attacks. I enjoyed being more active and the weight loss from being terribly depressed and trying to end my life. However after a while insomnia kicks in and it's no longer fun, so my doctor and I decided the side effects were outweighing the benefits after 4months.

 3  Depression,Anxiety Very hard time getting on this med. I stuck with it and it helped more than anything else I tried. Now I am quitting wellbutrin because I have been losing hair since April-alot of hair. Be warned that regardless of the drug makers claims of hair loss as a rare side effect, it is much more common then they would have you believe. Try it because if it works for you it will make life so much better. Just know if you start losing hair after 3 or 4 months and it's falling out longer then the 3 month normal shed cycle, it is probably this med. causing it. (I've lost about half my head of hair). I read about people losing hair on wellbutrin but of course it wasn't going to happen to me. So just a heads up guys. F 38 9 months

I would never speak up at team meeting at work even though I had things to add, just a lot of self doubt. Now with Wellbutrin, at my last teem meeting I smiled and talked and felt amazing not an awkward lady. I did get rage bad in the begining. Threw a bag of chips at husband for example. Its calmed down but not gone away. My family would rather deal with a little anger than a depressed mom. Also dry mouth and heavier period than usual. F 37 10 days

 3  ADHD Over the nine days I took it, I got more and more restless, and had severe outbursts of crying. Just sat there, listening to iTunes, crying, crying, crying. Felt good somehow, though. Like a release of suppressed feelings. So the cying was acceptable. I'd assume it would stop after a while. But on the 9'th day I had a panic attack. Couldn't sit still, was restless, and panicked. Felt really drugged. I should maybe have continued, to see whether the panic attack was a one-time affair. Wellbutrin seems very unique in effect. Might have been worth it. M 33 9 days

 4  depression Okay i have given this drug a good while to see it true effects and i would like to be very honest with those reading. I like this drug BC i have more energy, i believe that i take things in more stride than i once did and i believe i feel happier with it. Now here is what my husband and friends say. They want me to stop BC the suicide ideation is more real than ever. When its good its good, when its bad its bad. Strange i know for me to like taking this drug. But in truth drugs that alter chemical balance also alter perception. If anyone else believes they may be experiencing similar thoughts plz email me. I don't want to put everything on here but it is always positive to speak to those with similar experience. That being said, i still find it a helpful drug.

 4  moderate depression for 10 years No side effects from the start. I've always had a low libido and recently learned my free testosterone was 0 instead of a more normal 300 for a F, so I don't hold wellbutrin responsible for that. I used to cry myself to sleep several times a week and went into a "self pity" spiral after an upsetting event occurred. Since wellbutrin I've cried maybe 2-3 times in 3 yrs and over an appropriate event. I'm able to let arguments and mean things people say or do only mildly upset me. I use exercise to get over those things. sometimes I'm still sad for no reason, so I'm considering asking my doc to increase my dose. F 53 3 years

 4  Severe Depression & anxiety Trouble falling asleep and staying asleep, reduced appetite, headaches, feeling of weakness after very little movement (such as climbing a flight of stairs), dry mouth, some intermittent irritability, some intermittent shaky hands, increased libido. Most of the side effects I am experiencing are not bad enough to make me stop taking the med, and I'm not having the side effects that would cause me to stop (nausea & vomiting - I have emetophobia). What I have noticed is that the constant anxiety I was having is either gone or muted....as in, I can feel that there is anxiety there but it is not affecting me. I am having less suicidal feelings and thoughts since starting this medication. My feelings of extreme hopelessness have mostly disappeared. I have eliminated caffeine from my diet because it seems to cause anxiety symptoms & I am not a big drinker of alcohol but I have had no issues with the occasional social drink. Overall, this drug is working well for me so far. My depression and anxiety are both long term health issues and situational. I have hope that after the situational issues are resolved, I may be able to drop from 300mg/day to 150mg/day. F 43 4 weeks

 5  Clinical severe depression The best side effect of all: relief from clinical major double depression (severe depression and dysthymia). An activating drug, which was perfect for me as I was previously too tired to do anything. After I started taking it, I actually wanted to get out of the house. It was my own personal miracle. I pay cold hard cash for brand name as I believe generic in this drug is not as effective, and I have no interest in risking it. It's the only drug that has worked for me, and I've felt normal for years. But I will never, ever forget the absolute and complete dreadful misery of depression. I don't ever want to go back to feeling that way again, and I will never take this medication for granted. Thank god for Wellbutrin. F 45 12 years

 2  Severe Depression Horrible headaches Dizziness Apathy Sleep problems I took Wellbutrin in 2003, and it was wonderful. I was taking SR twice a day. It gave me energy, I lost weight, and I felt very happy. This XL is horrible. It helps the depression, but I get terrible headaches from it. It takes two Ibuprofen and two naproxen together to get rid of them. Dizziness is another problem. I thought the headaches would go away after a couple of weeks, but they haven't. Sometimes I have to skip a day just to have a pain free day. At first, my concentration and energy was off the charts, but now I'm really apathetic and have no energy at all, but can't sleep at night. I'm going to the Dr. end of the month and ask to be taken off of this medicine. F 60 6 weeks
