    I experienced severe mood swings, nausea, insomnia and almost every conceivable side effect listed. I took myself off before I did something dangerous with my physician's approval.

    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

    After suffering from depression most of my life, Wellbutrin has been the only drug that really works for me. I was on generic Prozac before this, which made me less sad, but also numb, like a drugged deer. Couldn't even cry. With Wellbutrin I feel great, have appropriate emotions, and have lost 60lbs (along with Weight Watchers). It has also increased my sex drive. Who could ask for more ... Show Full Comment
