I just started taking Wellbutrin, and i’m wondering if anyone has any experience on this med, good or bad. I recently was on Lexapro for a little over a year (it stopped working for me) then switched to duloxetine for about a month and it made me feel crazy and insane and manic. I just switched to Wellbutrin on Sunday and i’m curious.

      I was given Wellbutrin as a little boost for my mood/libido when cymbalta was doing damage to my drive/energy levels. I wanted to love it but it gave me anxiety and jitters (more than usual). I know so many people who found it was perfect for them!

      i started out on lexapro, but it made me so so exhausted they added wellbutrin in conjunction. i was doing that combo for probably about a year and it worked well for me! i personally didn’t have a lot of side effects, the only thing i noticed was a pretty big loss of appetite (which went back to normal after a while). i just kept a lot of protein shakes around, since drinking food felt more appealing than actually eating something, especially at breakfast. i wish you luck! :)

      Wellbutrin caused me severe anxiety, to the point I had head explosions and severe panic attacks.

      i was on lexapro and switched to wellbutrin when the lexapro stopped doing its job. the only thing i didn’t like about starting wellbutrin was that i had very intense stomach pains and aches for about two weeks. it eventually goes away after a bit…other than that, i have been happy with it.

        @nalabean i also just stopped lexapro to get on wellbutrin, i’ve had ridiculous stomach cramps but they’ve prescribed meds for that. i appreciate your advice!!
