Can I stop Wellbutrin after a week?

I don't feel like it's helping my depression anyway, makes me lightheaded, dizzy, and gives me dry mouth in addition to worsening my already bad anxiety. I've been taking the Wellbutrin XL 150 mg for a week, can I just get off of it?

I also take Klonopin 1mg/day to prevent panic attacks and help me sleep at night.

Still have bad headaches and just feel like nothing is helping.........

Thanks!

Its far to early to judge if the drug is working. It can take up to 2 months for a drug to start its full effect. After that you and your doctor may  have to adjust levels. You are going through the typical side effects they do go away with time. You may have to adjust your starting level to 75 or 100 mg. Don't give up. Give it atleast 3 - 6 months before trying something else.

above comments are correct.  Anti-depressants take a few weeks to show any benefit.  Give it time.

have to agree with the above two comments, the first weeks of an antidepressant is SUPPOSED to be rough. it is not going to kick in until 4-6 weeks and then you can start looking for alternatives if you still feel the same. keep strong!
