    I have been taking this drug for a few weeks and it seems to have reduced my depressive moods and thoughts. I was severely depressed, hardly left the house because of low energy, lack of focus, and stress. I had been through a job loss and marital problems that led to severe depression.

It would not have gone away. Wellbut ... Show Full Comment

    Wellbutrin has been the only antidepressant that's worked for me. I enjoy life again and now that I'm active my weight is within normal range, and the extra benefits are that I'm more focused and organized. Even family members who were against me taking Wellbutrin have changed their minds after seeing me enjoy life again. I will not feel guilty taking this antidepressant (it is not a s ...
