    This medication changed my life. I was failing out of school because I was so depressed I just couldn't get out of bed to go to class. After taking this medication for three months I became a straight A student. For the first week or so I was on this medication I had a headache, and if I miss a dose I get a headache. That has been my only problem with this medication.

    Well when takin alone, this stuff really works. I tried every other drug before this one, and I must say this was the easiest for me to adapt to in regards to side effects. However I was also givin Lorazepam with it which I ended up abusing and then even using alcohol and marijuana on top of it. My advice would be to just take the bupropron sr alone with nothing else. Alcohol and marijuana do ... Show Full Comment

    I wanted to use this drug because I was depressed and also wanted to quit smoking. I used a generic non timed release and found I actually experienced withdrawal symptoms between doses. The only good thing I experienced was once I went through a few weeks of theses withdrawals between doses nicotene withdrawal seemed like a cakewalk. Even though I only used drug for a few weeks I have never had an ... Show Full Comment

    I have been taking this drug off and on for abouta month a half. I seemed to notice cravings for sweets at first and didnt think it was working so doc switched me to Lexapro. It seemed like it was working but couldnt sleep so asked to get off that. He put me back on Bupripion and I was noticing the weight gain and increased appetite again. I have gained weight and am not happy about that at all. D ... Show Full Comment
