    Initially found side effects difficult: shakiness, difficulty sleeping, dizziness. Worked well with cytomel in the end.

    I have been taking 450mg for nearly three months. I had been severely depressed for over a year, and bad circumstances beyond my control that happened in 2007 made it even worse. I have to say that after the first month on Wellbutrin (and therapy), however, I am feeling great.
