      I know for Wellbutrin it’s normal to have like a high for a week and then you might even get worse before it starts to really work. Over the course of a month my motivation and energy got so much better and then the emotional effects take 6-8 weeks. Idk about the other med. of course if it gets bad contact your doctor

      I've been on Wellbutrin for a while, sadly I can't go any higher in the doses because I get dizzy. I work in a place where there are a lot of flyers and grilles so if I were to get dizzy at the wrong time I would get badly burned, in the past I could be on a high dose and be fine but now it's dangerous and so I take the lower dose twice a day. Everyone is different.

        @melabeille my doctor actually suggested that today so thank you 🙏 however my insurance is stupid and said it's not a preferred brand so I had to pay for it and it would go toward my deductible. So Adderall it is I guess

        @melabeille you shouldn't use Vyvanse in bipolar, it can very easily cause psychotic break
