While it did take 3 weeks, I feel more positive, rarely cry, don't allow my personal life to drag me under, and best of all...my interstate daily commute doesn't consume me. Less sexual desire, less desire to eat. Usually have a small glass of wine 3 to 5 times a week; rarely now and I don't miss it...much. It has effected my sleep. Had to increase Ambien to 5mg (from 2.5)which I take ... Show Full Comment

I was prescribed Wellbutrin SR after testing very high on the standard depression assessment test everyone (health professionals) uses, which is a really in-comprehensive, simplistic and terrible assessment tool from a professional medical and psychological health standpoint if you ask me.

Works just OK. Does seem to help with depression and impulsive actions and to quit smoking. Can make anxiety much worse if you already suffer from it.

I take 200 mg 2x day. Have been on this for over 15 years. Other medications didn't work for me. It took time to get used to taking a pill 2x a day on a regular basis. I notice when I miss pills & can't function at work without them.

Comment:
I took this drug for chronic depression, as prescribed by my psychologist and I experienced worsening depression. The warning label says that those under 25 may experience counter-active side effects, but I found that this drug made me feel much more depressed and I never had suicidal thoughts before then, but I did after taking the drug. Because these feelings only worsened with time, I opted ... Show Full Comment
