    I was taking effexor xr for about a year and a half along with adderall, and did not do very well on it, so I was switched to wellbutrin xl. I have been taking it for about a month now and I don't feel any better. I do however think my weight is going back to normal. I am very moody, down, and feel tired all of the time.

    I've been on this medication for more than 5 years. It works great for me. The XL once a day doesn't keep me awake as the SR 2times a day did.

    I orrigonally went on Wellbutrin SR to quit smoking 2 1/2 years ago. It worked and I don't smoke anymore. Then I realized I like the new me and realized I had undiagnosed depresion. After 2 years of taking it I went to a new OB-GYN for my yearly and she inadvertantly changed me to Wellbutrin XL (it stays in your system twice as long as the SR). I didn't think anything of it as I am a RN an ... Show Full Comment

    Was taking Prozac and it was ok but low sex drive was terrible, just started taking Wellbutrin XL 150mg and it is working great no side effects yet, except decreased appetite.
