    I was on Wellbutrin XL 150mg twice a day doing great. Now comes the generic and I have to take 300mg once a day. I get heavy anxiety, shakes, sweats, irritable, stressed, it just sucks. I feel like crap. I asked my doctor to switch me back and the insurance company says they will not cover the Wellbutrin only the generic. This sucks! I do not feel like myself at all.

I had become this evil person, with anger, a ... Show Full Comment

    I think perhaps this drug is causing my hair to thin...and I am extremely concerned, as otherwise the drug has helped me. Is there any other drug that helps with depression, helps with energy level and NO hair thining?

Took a month to realize it was the change in brands after 2 hospital visits and being scared half to death.
