      Wellbutrin is one of the few medications that don't have sexual side effects for me. It doesn't work as well as Lexapro or Zoloft did but it works enough to keep everything tamped down enough. That for me is a huge thing though bc I can't work with ones that either make explicit hard core stuff feel like watching a documentary on forest frogs (Zoloft) or making the whole experience pretty miserable (Lexapro).

      I take Wellbutrin along side with Cymbalta and it's a good balance of dopamine Seratonin and Norepinephrine

      It depends on which type of Wellbutrin. I was started on xl 150mg twice a day and I got the shakes from it and muscle twitches that I had to stop it after just a week

      Wellbutrin was really bad for me. I'm sure I had other side effects, but I can remember only remember one. It made me a really angry person. I went from being a quiet, reserved person to a loud, explosive person. Everything irritated me and I lashed out at everyone. Almost a rage-a-holic. It was horrible.

      Wellbutrin works great for me, I've been taking it for a few years now with no problems.

      I've been taking it for a long time and has been the best for me, Ive tried many others but this seems to keep me stable and calm better than others, and thankfully without all the side effects.

      I've taken it for years as a part of my meds, I also take effexor and latuda and the combo keeps me stable

      I started at 50 mg for 4 weeks, then 100 mg for 4 weeks, then 150 mg for 4 weeks with no results. Every time the dose increased including when I started, a week and a half in I would feel like I'm high for 2 days and then it would go away. It did help me cut back smoking though.

      I was given it as a "sample" from an urgent care during college when I was like REALLY struggling. And I was in such a bad place out of desperation I took it! (I was also on other rx, at the time, aka adderall). Basically craziness ensued and I had a horrible experience with it lol

        @busy_bee may I ask what kind of craziness?

      It was prescribed to me to help me gain weight, but I didn't like how it made me feel.

      Wellbutrin didn't work for me as a child it made me gain a lot of weight and I was always sad

      It made me very nauseous for some reason. I think you just have to try things until you find the right one. That’s unfortunately unpleasant for a period of time. Zolof works for me with no side effects. But others don’t do well with it. I’m not numb but definitely more upbeat and in control on Zoloft.

      Wellbutrin made me almost manic in a way. I'd have crying fits for no reason, my vision would black out and i wouldnt remember certain parts of say trips in the car, i live my prozac though. Im on a much lower dose and its done wonders for me
