    I was put on this twice a day pill at 100mg per tablet back in November and at first I had a severe reaction to it ie. nightmares, racing thoughts that lead to severe anxiety attacks at night, insomnia, headaches and nausea.

    i have suffered from depression for about 2 years now, and have been on prozac, paxil, and lexapro. Paxil did nothing for me accept put on 20 pounds. prozac worked but not good enough.then tried wellbutrin, and feel so much better, like a brand new person. i dont feel sad, or rundown, i feel like their is hope and a purpose in life. i definitley reccommend this drug

    I have only taken this drug for a few days. I cannot say I am satisfied yet. The first day I took it I had nightmares all night. And for the past few days I have not been able to sleep very well. I wake up a few times a night and it is very hard to go back to sleep. I wake up very early now. I hope this gets better, it is suppose to be for my anxiety and I am praying it works.
