    I had major side affects from this medication. Almost an extreme manic experience the first day I took it. It took 48 hours to pass the medication though my body. I am now back on Wellburtin and have been prescribed Deplin as a supplement. I feel very hopeful about Deplin, but have only starting taking the Folic supplement yesterday.

    For over a year I had been feeling "heavy". I do not like to take medicine so I tried: keeping a gratitude journal, vitamins, meditation/prayer, diet change, and exercise.

Side effects of headache and nausea were over in the first week ... Show Full Comment
