I am getting put on a new medicine tht is supposed to treat my depression, anxiety, and adhd. I believe it is called Wellbutrin I believe. I don't rlly like taking antidepressants and anti anxiety or adhd as most of them make me feel so numb I want to hurt myself just to feel something. is there a way to get around tht? cause I genuinely hate the feeling.

      You have a good prescriber if you were put on Wellbutrin. It has relatively minor potential for side-effects and also helps people quit smoking.

        @Chris1987 it caused me to have a mental breakdown and became suicidal. I took myself off of it.

          @LilithMarie666 Have you contacted your doctor about this?

      I have taken many meds before that gave me the numb feeling. Wellbutrin does not have that impact on me, it just regulates my moods, and it is somewhat of a stimulant for ADHD so it shouldn't make you sleepy or numb. Finding the right med combo is a personal and frustrating journey but I will say not to give up! it took me years to find the meds I take now.

        @HauntedHarlequin so wellbutrin did in fact have a bad reaction to me. Hopefully I can get it managed.

      I just got put in a medication for my chronic depression called Prozac. I completely get that feeling of numbness and needing sensations. Cold showers man. Cold as it goes. Jump in it and stay as long as you can manage it. Draw all over yourself in pen. The pen is slightly uncomfortable gliding across the skin and causes a weird tingly sensation. Put some Elmer's glue on your hand, let it dry and peel it off. It will pull all the little baby hairs and cause pain, but it's not harming you in any way. These are all things ive done, I hope this helps!!!
