    After taking Zoloft for 6 years, it stopped working for me. The doctor tried me on two other drugs I don't remember the names of. They both made me very anxious and agitated. He decided to try me on the Wellbutrin. I started out taking 150 mgs. twice a day. I never had one side effect from it and could tell a difference in my mood right away. I also got back my sex drive that the Zoloft had to ... Show Full Comment

    It has worked pretty well to improve my mood, I'm better able to be happy after taking this. However, those effects have seemed to diminish over time.

    Comment:
    I was very irritable when first starting it and I could feel the medication fading away and myself becoming more anxious. It has gotten better since but still not as good as when I was on celexa. My side effects are severe dry mouth and my ears ring all of the time, drives me crazy but are obviously not the worst side effects you can have. I was placed on this because the weight gain I had while ... Show Full Comment

    Comment:
    i took lexapro and zoloft before, and they both caused crazy weight gain, increased appetite, and caused my personality to become very flat. Wellbutrin does the trick and helps majorly with my depression, without the flat-personality shift and weight gain. However, if I take the pill before I ear breakfast, I feel very nauseous throughout the day
