 4  Depression mild-to-moderate insomnia, slight nausea for the first few days, flashes of irritability for the first week, then subsided. I first tried Wellbutrin as a teen in an inpatient hospital 20 years ago (serious, chronic depression), and it worked wonderfully. Over the years I would go back to it now and then when the depression welled up again. About 4 years ago I had serious side-effects from generic Wellbutrin, and was unable to afford non-generic. Fast forward to now...I read about Aplenzin as being a "tailored" version of Wellbutrin - so (now that I have good insurance) I wanted to give it a try. I have to say that this medication has almost ZERO side effects - I'm so pleased with the results! I started really feeling better two weeks into treatment, so I'll continue with the 174 mg. dose. F 35 1 months

 4  chronic depression loss of appetite, decreased sex drive, still feel depressed sometimes, but it seems to pass more quickly w/this medication than others I've tried This med was tried in desperation because I haven't had much luck w/antidepressants over the years. I also have rheumatoid arthritis & ankylosing spondilitis so there are those meds to add to the mix. F 50 10 months

 5  depression weight loss yep, that's right. I actually started loosing weight! Not only do I feel soooo much better (more energy, happier, not as moody)but I lost like 15 lbs. wierd. good wierd. Even if I didn't have the added weight loss joy - the drug itself has greatly improved my life. I've tried other drugs. This one worked for me :) I don't know if I'll ever try to stop taking it (if I did, my husband would probably slip it into my coffee!) M 44 9 months

APLENZIN  (BUPROPION HYDROBROMIDE):  This medication is used to treat depression. It may also be used to prevent seasonal affective disorder (SAD), a type of depression that occurs each year at the same time (for example, during winter). This medication can improve your mood and feelings of well-being. It may work by restoring the balance of certain natural substances (dopamine, norepinephrine) in the brain.   (Sources: U.S. Centers for Medicare Services, FDA)
