Comment:
I had tried two other drugs in the past 10 years (SSRI). I was almost ready to give up but then gave Wellbutrin a try. The adjustment period was hardly noticeable. I did have a few nights of restlessness and some night sweats in the first two weeks. The only major side effect was a major increase in sex drive.

I was recently reduced to 40 mg of Celexa due to new studies that no more than 40 mg should be taken due to risk of heart issues/ ... Show Full Comment

Comment:
I have been taking Wellbutrin XL 300 mg for about 5 weeks now (started on 150 mg). This has been much more effective than any other antidepressant I've taken. In the past 20 years I've been on Prozac, Celexa, Zoloft (with and without Abilify) and also Deplin. The first couple of weeks, I was a bit more irritable, but was ok with it, because I cared about things again and was engaging ag ... Show Full Comment
