Hello, i was taking Wellbutrin Xl 300mg for 2 yrs. the last 6 months i was taking a generic brand. However, i became very depressed i the last 2 months. i was hospilized 3 weeks ago. They took me off of Wellbutrin and now i take Celexa and Remeron. However, i dont like their side effects. So today i switched back to Wellbutrin. Can i do this? i took it around 9:20am this morning, then 20 min later i began to feel lightheaded and my heart was racing. Is this normal?

Sorry you are going through a tough time. I found out the hard way that my body does not like Wellburtrin anymore. I was taking Wellbutrin for 7 years. I believed it was not working too much anymore since I was feeling really depressed and alot of anxiety. I went to the doc and he changed me to Lexapro. I felt great the first day but then started feeling really bad (vertigo, insomnia, nausea.. just to name a few). I found out that I was having withdrawals from the Wellbutrin so I freaked out and started taking my Wellbutrin again. It made me more sick. I have read on a couple of sites that you can take Wellbutrin the first time and it works great. Start taking it again and it may not. I made the decision to just not take any meds anymore. I have been off of them for 2 weeks. Still have withdrawals but not as bad. I even noticed that I do not have as much depression and anxiety. I did find out that Wellburtin can cause anxiety. I would contact your doctor or pharmacist. My doctor was not much help so I worked with the pharmacist. See what they say. They know how the drugs work probably more than the doctors. Best of luck.

Hello Wannabebetter. I read your reply with great interest and understanding. Then I noticed it was posted last year. I'm wanting to get of Wellbutrin XL too, after about six years. If you see this, please let me know how things are going with you.

I have been taking Wellbutrin since 2000. Should I be worried about long term use? It works well for me.
