    It seemed to work for about a week and then I had a severe panic attack. I have been off of it for two weeks and I have horrible anxiety all the time now.

    interaction with antifungal cream? walking around in Juneau, I believe you're basically just going to get a fungal infection; moss grows on lightpoles out here! I've used this cream I have in the past with no ill-effect, but after having been on welb for a month or so, low dosage, I broke out all over in hives; interestingly, except for the two patches of skin I had applied it to.

I have had severe depression for about 10 years. Had been on prozac and effexor before wellbutrin. They both worked, but not even close to how the wellbutrin is helping me! I'm taking 300mg XL per day. I f ... Show Full Comment

    Comment:
    I was hospitalized for severe depression and anxiety almost two years ago. The doctor immediately started me on a low dose of Wellbutrin (the generic type), and upped it to 300mg before I was released. I went through four other medications for anxiety, since Wellbutrin often does not treat both depression and anxiety. Finally, I ended up with Zoloft, which also enhances the effect of Wellbutrin.
