I suffer from anxiety and depression . This drug seemed to cause my anxiety to get worse also I couldnt sleep and I had to take tylenol pm . It also seemed to make me feel more angry .

I loved how this gave me more energy though but overall I couldnt deal with the anxiety.

Comment:
I love my Wellbutrin. Originally I was perscribed a twice daily routine but once daily was actually more effective for me. As far as side effects at first it actually decreased my appetite tremendously but that wore off over time. The biggest thing to remember with this drug, or any antidepressant, it takes at least 4 weeks for the effects to really be seen. Also if the depression is being caused ... Show Full Comment
