The insomnia hasn't really bothered me since I was going to bed at 8:30 p.m. and now I go to sleep around 10 p.m. I would wake up around 2:30 a.m. and it would take a half hour to go back to sleep.

 1  Stop smoking. Caused a 'Prolonged QT Wave' in the heart, which was potentially fatal. Although the QT was present, we did not know this until a syncope episode sent me to the hospital by ambulance. End result 10 days later was an ICD/pacemaker. Wellbutrin caused an additional Prolonged QT and could have resulted in death. Be sure to check all side effects and drug interactions along with your current health conditions. Had the Neuro consulted with the heart Dr before prescribing this medication, it would not have been allowed due to danger it can present to heart patients. M 57 5 months

 1  Smoking cessation Extreme increase in sex drive. Odd, powerful, and sometimes scary dreams. Aided in weight loss. Did not help with smoking cessation. Withdrawal effects included "brain zaps," flu like symptoms, and all these side and withdrawal effects of this supposedly "safe smoking cessation med" we're then misdiagnosed as one of the "life long, incurable, genetic mental illnesses." What a nightmare it was dealing with psychiatrists not intelligent enough to read their own DSM, where it clearly states that if a person's symptoms were the result of a prior drug, then it is a misdiagnosis to claim the ADRs are a "life long, incurable, genetic mental illness." I understand the US psychiatric industry has committed this same malpractice (misdiagnosing the ADRs from antidepressants as bipolar) in over a million children so far. I'd like to see this massive psychiatric malpractice end soon, US psychiatrists, please. F 36 1 months

 4  Depression/Anxiety Practically none. Initially I had slight loss of appetite, but it went away. It's the ONLY antidepressant I've ever used that I did not suffer side effects from After years of trying Zoloft, Paxil, Pristiq, and several others, this was the first drug that ever significantly helped my depression. Even better, I was able to lose some weight, it did NOT kill my sex drive, and it helped me cut back on smoking. Miracle drug as far as I'm concerned! I even went off it entirely for several months, and I had zero withdrawl symptoms. F 27 2 years

 2  Bi-polar and depression 1st day: full of energy and calm. 2nd day: dizzy and nautious all day with a headache. 3rd day: the same as say 2. 4th day: I still had a bad headache and was dizzy and nautious, but I also got so irritated, annoyed, aggravated, angry and aggressive very easily and snapped on people. 5th day: all same side affects, but even worse. 6th day: I was all over the place. Having angry little outbursts where I was rude and then I randomly started crying then laughing then I went back to angry. The past 2 nights I woke up at 3 and couldn't go back to sleep. Last night couldn't fall asleep. Day 7:(today) I felt nautious and dizzy with a headache. I've had those 3 symptoms every day since I started it. I almost feel like I'm pregnant with morning sickness. It's a terrible feeling that I hope goes away soon cuz my heads gonna explode and Advil does not work. I don't see it helping me at all yet.

 3  Anxiety/depression I've been taking 150 mg a day for a total of 5 days. I take my dose in the mornings. I've experienced a couple of reactions during these past 5 days, none of which bugged me too much. First day energy and focus. This is my first time taking medication of this kind, but before it I never wanted to get out of bed, I was sensitive, angered and irritated by everyone and everything easily and had no motivation. Day 2 I had less energy. Day 3 I flipped out on my boyfriend and was experiencing sensitivity to lights. Day 4 I had giggles and then felt no difference. I still have the same thoughts of worthlessness, I still don't get up and do anything. I'm not sure if its too low of a dose or I just haven't been taking it long enough. Last night I did experience some insomnia. I woke up at 2 am and didn't go back to sleep until 4:30 am. I'm not on any other medications so I'm hoping for the best and I will be giving it a few weeks. F 23 5 days

 4  PTSD Slight Tinnitus, Insomnia, Anxiety I really dislike taking meds. I have tried so many , I can't remember half of them. I always look at reviews until my doctor said I needed to stay on Wellbutrin XL if I wanted to get better. I've started and stopped WB many times but this time I stuck with it. I have gotten past all the side effects and I do feel better. I have some energy, work full-time and so far it's working for me. The only problem I have is that I have lost 45 pounds since January , I think most of it is diet change but I also think some of it has to do with WB. From 170 lbs to 125 lbs now. I'm hungry, buy food to fix and end up not eating it. F 64 8 months

 2  Chronic Anxiety and Depression Much worse anxiety and depression. Slight insomnia. Pleasant Vivid dreams at first. Extremely lethargic - couldn't even watch TV. Sky high libido but too lazy to do anything with it. I started out on 150mg XL (Generic - Par) in the morning then titrated after a week to 300mg XL (Name brand) per day. I was so filled with anxiety and depression that I had to go on short-term disability at work. THEN the doctor titrated the Name Brand to 450mg XL once in the morning. I was a nervous wreck, couldn't think, too lethargic to do anything. Please keep in mind, I was also on 6mg (yes, 6mg) of Xanax XR even before taking the Wellbutrin XL. Well the 450mg dose made me a non-thinking, non-productive, shuttering shell. The doctor dropped me to 300mg and I still feel AWFUL! I have no Bi-Polar or any other condition but he is going to add Abilify to the Wellbutrin. I'm already insulin resistant, 50 lbs overweight and petrified of permanent Tardive Dyskinesia, Diabetes and extra weight on Abilify. Please offer some advice. Thank you much!! M 49 7 weeks

 5  Depression, Anxiety, Extreme Stress headache for the first day or so, joint pain (although that's common with a hyperlaxity disorder) increase in sexual libido (no complaints) ... falling asleep and/or staying asleep is the worst - currently 7am and Ive been awake since 2pm yesterday. ..... I am finding issues with short term memory at times .. but that could just be the hundred things I have going on at once. I work in the medical field and deal quite a bit with medications. Other than clonaz 3mg/day, I don't take other meds. I researched and researched this drug, I even discovered a co-worker and a friend have been taking it for awhile and they had nothing but great things to say about it ... plus it helped them stop smoking, something I have been trying to do for a year, as well as lose weight. -- so far so good ... appetite is decreased ALOT ... Im not hungry therefore have trouble deciding what to eat .. but once its infront of me, I will eat. Smoking, no change (esp at work!!) ...... looking forward to seeing whats to come from this ..... the reviews have been fantastic so I am very very hopeful and look forward to the "new me" M 29 2 weeks

 4  Atypical Depression Short Term: Dry Mouth, Slight Headache, Vivid Dreams, Slight Insomnia, Slightly Moody (but happy) I will have to give it 2 months before I can truly say if this worked. The initial effect at 300 mg was an amazing rush of energy. I was socializing with everyone around me. No social fear. No paranoia. I am expecting this to to decrease and stabilize in 2-3 months. I hope this medication helps me become me again. I have been experiencing emotions for the first time in a long time. It's such a good feeling. Slight headache is common, but it's not painful enough that you'd want to take anything for it. Usually you're distracted and don't notice it until you're alone with your thoughts. So that's alright.

 1  Quit smoking Parkinsons-like head tremors, easily angered, aggressive, hand shaking, severe anxiety, agoraphobia, nausea I had stopped smoking, cold turkey, and after 2 weeks began to feel extremely depressed and had crying spells. My doctor prescribed Wellbutrin. The drug did stop the crying spells but I had major anxiety. I had severe hand and head tremors I was stressed. I looked like I had Parkinson's disease. I do take Paxil for depression (30 yrs) and a sleeping pill along with Ativan for anxiety (as needed). Maybe adding the Wellbutrin just put me over the top. Stuck it out for 2 1/2 months, then started smoking and weening myself off the drug. I'm going to try to stop smoking again and try to tough it out without meds. I will not go back on Wellbutrin. The worst experience of my life. F 59 75 days

 2  mild depression Very mild side effects that lasted a few days: dry mouth, vivid dreams. Lasting side effects: increased hunger, weight gain, fatigue I've never been on any antidepressant and I barely take any drugs at all including ibuprofen, so I thought this would work for me. For me it seems to have the opposite effects of its intended ones, I don't really feel better at all and now I'm tired all the time. I am usually very, very energetic, but since taking this drug, my energy has been sapped. I'm very physically fit--i work out hard 6-7 days a week and now in each workout I feel out of breath. I've never had that problem before. My usual 5-7 mile runs feel like I'm running with weights. Anyone else experience fatigue/shortness of breath on this drug? I told myself I'd give it 5-6 months, but I don't think I can tolerate feeling tired all the time. Also, I have no decreased appetite--I seemed to have gained a few pounds (not in a good way) and feel no effect on my libido. Anyone else had as similar experience? F 36 3 months

 4  Anxiety Vertigo, increased energy and motivation, fuzziness, loss of memory I took Wellbutrin 5 years ago and have recently started taking it again. Although it's only been 2 weeks, I notice an increase in energy levels - I am awake before my alarm goes off in the morning and have started running. I feel more motivation to be active - I'm not sure if that's the medication or the fact it's spring time. I had started smoking again 3 to 4 months ago after having been quit for almost 6 years. Within one week of taking this medication cigarettes were disgusting and I just stopped smoking. It's only been 4 days, but I have zero cravings. I'm concerned with the vertigo symptom as I read on-line this could be in relation to a seizure. F 35 2 weeks

 2  Clinical Depression, Anxiety, ADD Moderate to severe stomach pain, hungry until food is presented and then all appetite is completely lost, short term memory loss, fogginess, increased anxiety, loss of articulation, severe dizzy spells after smoking the occasional cigarette, huge increase in sexual libido, not wanting to talk, tired all the time but can't fall asleep, loss of articulation with speech. I realize that I have not waited the period of time enough to judge this medication, but the initial side affects are intense. For the first time in years, i'm able to focus, but it's incredibly hard to do so with the pain in my stomach and increased anxiety and panic attacks. I personally felt affects the first day I took it, mainly the focus. But I also noticed a lack of articulation with outward speech and short term memory loss almost immediately. Any caffeine consumption leads me to severe anxiety, tremors, constant sweating, and lightning fast heartbeat. Have that feeling in your throat right before you cry all the time, which I usually only have during panic attacks. Every little thing sets me off. Irritated with everything. I will stick with this for a few more weeks just because that's what everybody keeps saying but this is fucked up. M 17 4 days

 5  Bipolar II, depression headache, metallic taste in mouth, very slight nausea I have been depressed and moody since I was a small child. The only drug that helps seems to be Wellbutrin. This is a wonder drug for me. I feel energized and happy, I sleep better (contrary to most people's experience), and best of all I don't have the horrible depressed thoughts I tend to have when I don't take meds. I also take lithium 600 mg/day with the Wellbutrin, and I think the lithium helps me not get too hyped up and anxious. When I started this drug 15 years ago I took Wellbutrin (not XL) and it was almost as good. The XL is nicer though, it smooths out the troughs and peaks and seems to be easier on the system. Love, love, love this drug. F 57 15 years

In the 3rd week I started itching, then I started to get roving hives all over my body. I wanted to wait it out, so I started taking allegra every day with benadryl 3 or 4 times a day, but after 8 days of the itching and hives becoming worse I had to stop.

As of now I'm not feeling any positive results and the side effects have not subsided. I'm holding out though since everyone says it takes 6-8 weeks.

 3  Depression,anxiety,&to quit smoking Increased crying spells for first 4 or 5 weeks. Quick to anger and a lot of agitation and irritability. Dry mouth but not bad. Some insomnia. Binge eating, I'm not hungry but can't stop eating. I had tried taking wellbutrin in my early 20's and had to stop because of suicidal thoughts etc. however it has been about 15 years since then so I decided to give it another try. I did not start feeling any relief from depression (and seemed to have gotten worse) until about week 6. Now I don't feel so extremely low and sometimes have a good day. Honestly I have noticed no increase in energy but have noticed an increase in libido, which happened around week 3 or 4. I have cut down my smoking to a few cigarettes a day from over a pack for almost 18 yrs. However due to my agitation, irritability, and anger I am not quitting completely at this time. Interestingly I have severe menstrual cramps and it seems to help this ailment somewhat. When I was taking Prozac I always lost weight so it is interesting that on Wellbutrin XL (a drug known to help with weight loss) I am quickly gaining weight by binge eating. Perhaps it is due to cutting down on smoking, however most information I read led me to believe this wouldn't be much of an issue. I am hopeful that the Wellbutrin's effectiveness will continue to increase over the next month and that my anger and irritability will decrease, as well as my appetite. It is worth a try for anyone thinking of getting on it but keep in mind it can take several weeks of misery before you feel some relief, not always the case but something to keep in mind. This med seems to have helped an awful lot of people. F 37 7 weeks

 4  Depression, GAD Initially (first month after every dose increase): anxiety, nervousness, insomnia, loss of appetite, weight loss, ADD-like symptoms. It has helped my depression tremendously, though! ***Long-term: I don't think many people list long-term side effects, so I want to warn people of my experience! Wellbutrin XL was great for losing weight INITIALLY. However, after being on it for 2.5 years, I now notice a severe increase in appetite, and slow weight gain....(see additional comments) I am not taking any new drugs whatsoever, so I can't attribute this appetite increase to any other drug. It may be because I am on a high dose (450). At first the increased dose made me lose 10 lbs, but now my appetite is strange! I eat a full, balanced meal, and the next hour I am starving again. I haven't gained that much weight, but I am eating way more now. So odd! I'm going to see my doctor next week. I may decrease my dose. F 22 2.5 years

Helped depression and have no more panic attacks. Losing 10 lbs definitely helped the depression. But now I'm noticing weird side effects. My side effects were foggy minded.

 4  Depression Faster heart beat at times Slight tremor after caffeine consumption Heartburn Constipation HAPPINESS EXCITEMENT IMPROVED SOCIAL SKILLS AND RELATIONSHIPS First off, I am a med student and know a good amount about antidepressants. NO ONE should be commenting on how bad this drug is before they have taken the drug for 6- 8 weeks. This drug, as many other antidepressants, take many weeks to take effect. The drug has to build up in your bloodstream and level out, becoming consistent before you start to feel positive effects. There has to be a consistent level of drug that you are taking in and that you are excreting. SO - do not listen to the reviews that say after 1 day or 3 weeks that the drug was awful. Everyone is different, antidepressants are known for their shitty side effects, and it is a FACT that you have to wait for them to work. This is not a fast food restaurant - you don't get what you want right away. These are neurotransmitters and receptors that are being altered in the brain. That does not mean that it will work for everyone after those first 8 weeks, however those people who are posting negative comments after 1 day or a week are just scaring those people who maybe want to try this drug. SO, I had awful side effects when I started this drug. Insomnia, panic attacks, jitters, palpitations...you name it. However, by week 2 or 3, the side effects slowly started to go away... and after two months of being on the drug I honestly could not be happier. I have never been excited about anything in my life, and I mean anything. I never celebrated birthdays, didn't care about presents, hated weddings, danc F 24 6 months

 1  Major Depression None Is this drug a joke? I was reading through all of the reviews and it seemed that people were saying things like it helped with libido and increased emotions, which is exactly what I wanted because of my anhedonic/apathetic/low libido symptoms, but let me tell you, I was disappointed. I thought for sure it would work or I would at least feel SOMETHING, but unfortunately, it felt just like a sugar pill. Are you kidding me? What a wussy drug. I was taking it with abilify also, which was supposed to "work synergistically" with it. M 20 8 weeks

 3  Clinical Depression, GAD, ADHD Lots and lots of nausea (on the verge of vomiting all the time) Dizziness and light headed Apart from the nausea the wellbutrin is helping keep me focused on the things I need to do. I've asked my psych about the side effects; I think I need to give it more time. F 29 1 months

 1  Depression, And to quit smoking Feeling Fuzzy, Anxiety attacks ( very bad panic attacks ), feeling zombiefied, Hullucinations ( fuzzyness ), suicidal thoughts, loss in appitite, This drug is beyond me, and i honestly dont know why they would keep it on the market. Not only did i want to kill myself on it, but i felt emotionless. I know you see alot of rating on it, but my best advice is to stay away from it and try diet and excersize. The withdrawls were the worst ever withdrawls I have ever experienced. The panic attacks were horrible, I am feeling normal right now but still dont quiet have my inner self intact. Please dont let your child take this. I have tried most drugs in my life and this is like acid, coke, extacy all in one. Please beware M 21 7 days

 1  "depression" Crazy. Acting completely not like myself. Just all around felt weird. Can't really explain. And when I drank (which isn't often. Once a week. I'm in college) I would go absolutely bat shit crazy. I punched my best friend even. That's when I started getting scared. And called my dr. She told me to stay on it and it would pass. It didn't. So I quit cold turkey one day ad will never go back. Turns out I wasn't depressed but had ADD and I feel better now. F 20 1 years

 2  SAD/anxiety tremors, unable to put words and thoughts together, night sweat, headache, agitation, heart palpatations, no appetite I live in the Pacific Northwest so I wanted something to ease the long winter depression and also day to day issues. I was told by my dr to take one 150mg for 3 days and then two 150mg a day thereafter (total 300mg). I was taking the generic. The first day I felt nothing much other than a slight annoying headache.Then the next day I took another and that evening got shaky, extremely agitated, unable to focus and put words together. My heart was racing and felt like it was coming out of my chest. My husband said it was like I was on speed. That night I woke up drenched from sweat. The next morning I could barely focus my eyes to work. They actually hurt. Head still hurt also and everyone I talked to, I still had to stutter my words out because I couldn't think of what I was trying to say. I had to try really hard to think and make sensible words. I decided that this was not for me. I didn't care to give it any longer. Today I was looking at the bottle and noticed that it said 300mg tablets. So if I had taken the prescribed dosage I would have been taking 600mg on the fourth day!!!! Guess its a very good lesson to read your prescription bottles before taking! Now I need to decide who is at fault. The pharmacy or the dr. Not that it matters because I won't be taking any dosage or anything higher. If I wanted to take meth I can get that anywhere and not need a prescription. F 41 2 days

 3  Depression Binge eating, insomnia, anger, irritability, emotional outbursts I was given Wellbutrin after I realized my 20 mg's of Lexapro we're seemingly not working. Since I started it Ive been binge eating, angry at minor daily situations, and severe mood swings (i.e. happy to blubbering depression) Ive also recently started having some anxiety. But the worst part I have to say is the insomnia and mood swings. I feel awful for bursting out at those who don't deserve is and I'm constantly on this emotional roller-coaster. My next psychiatrist appt. I am asking for a change. I believe three months is long enough to see that it isn't helping me but hindering. I just want to feel better. F 16 3 months
