      It triggered a manic episode and made me hallucinate so had to stop taking it

      I’ve heard this med triggered mania in some people but this is the only antidepressant that doesn’t trigger mania for me. It also helped me lose weight when i started taking it.

      I love it. I've been on 450mg for about 2 years and it's the only thing that's ever worked for me, since I react poorly to traditional stimulants.

      I've been on it for six months, it's kerbed my appetite but that's about all it has done. I get nausea and insomnia since starting, I hope to be tapered off it soon

      not gonna lie, i've been on it for six years and i've been doing fine. it's even helped me maintain a healthy weight, as other antidepressants made my appetite increase a lot. but i will say pairing it with something for anxiety or ocd makes it perfect. i have anxiety and ocd and sometimes i can spiral, but that's why i'm not taking it alone, i take other meds too. everyone is different though. so i guess just see how it is for a few weeks and decide then.

      So, I took Bupropion(on and off) from 2017 until early 2022. It worked in the beginning, but in the past couple years it made my depression worse. It helped a lot with my ADHD, but not enough to consider taking it longer.

        @ThePacifistWhale Good to know!
