      All I know is that when I was put on wellbutrin I had the worst manic episode I've ever had in my life, I almost left my fiance who I've been with for almost 6 years now, went to a psych hospital, was hanging out with people from the hospital, driving around with these strangers at 3am one night and them calling me cause they tried meth the next night. Absolutely never trying wellbutrin again lol.

      I've been on Wellbutrin for a couple months. I had been having major mood swings, and mild depression. At first it seemed to be working well, but I am starting to feel the mood swings again.

      i see youre diagnosed with ADHD, its actually helped me with both depression and that!

      I actually used that to help treat my ADHD and i definitely noticed feeling… lighter. Eventually it just didn’t seem to be effective, even as i increased dosage. The biggest pro tho is that it gave me like NO side effects 🙌🏼

      Welbutrin (not the generic one the real one) worked for me great honestly. It was when they switched me to the knock off that I had issues and it stopped working.

      Did anyone have a bad experience with it? I don’t love it..

        @FutureNurse I know for my husband it made his anxiety worse and they took him off of it. I had a friend that said it just didn’t help.

      Best antidepressant for fatigue and low energy, but exacerbates anxiety in the short-term

        @Wiseowl213 I agree it does exacerbates anxiety short-term. I had forgotten about that. It took me about a week and half, before it was gone. If you can hang in there for that it is amazing.

      I’ve been tai f it for years. I take it only in the morning. It keeps me up. It’s made a huge difference for me, I honestly don’t think I could manage my life without it.

      LOVE IT! It has been an amazing medication for me. My father uses it and it has worked great. My husband tried it and it was not a good fit for him. It’s not supposed to treat GAD, but I know for my father it does help.
