    I had been on Lexapro 10 mg once daily. I had lost my mother and brother within nine months of each other. I was devastated. My husband suffered a spinal cord injury at our summer vacation at ocean city in 2011. I have been getting worse. My doctor prescribed bupropion 150 sr once daily two weeks ago in addition to the Lexapro. I have only been taking 75 mg as I have reactions to certain drugs ... Show Full Comment

    I am very new to anti-depressants but after my anxiety attacks and depression getting out of control my doctor suggested them. I was on Zoloft for months but my sex drive went way down.

I had a little chunk before ... Show Full Comment

    This drug saved my life, and probably my marriage. I have experienced no side effects whatsoever. I started on 150mg time release two years ago, and after six months increased to 300mg time release. I take it early every morning once per day, but do not find that it has any effect my ability to sleep.

    I take 300 mg 1x per day. Prior to taking it my depression was severe. I did not want to leave the house, I felt constantly tired, I gained weight, and my job was at stake. This drug saved my life! I look forward to waking up everyday.

I ended up not refilling and after a few days of not taking it, I started to feel horrible. Anxiety and depression all came back full speed ahead. It was then I realized that this drug really was doing wonders for me. I take in the morning because at night it would k ... Show Full Comment
