I am not the same physician who replied to your previous question, I have though reviewed the response and agree with my colleague.
I can understand your concern regarding Wellbutrin's side effects. Wellbutrin is usually prescribed at 150mg twice a day, you may consider starting at 150mg a day inorder minmize the possible side effects. Ask your physician.
i was on wellbutrin for about 8 months for bipolar disorder, i did well on it , except when mixed with alchol, then you do have a lot of problems, i,m now on prozac and wondering the same things...good luck
I am a 54 year-old divorced woman. I have been on disability for 14 years with CFIDS and Crohn's.My doctor recommend that I be treated for depression and fatigue. As of 8/4, he changed my protocol to 25 mg Fluoxetine 1X/day and 150 mg. Bupropion 2X/day.
Within 36 hours, my libido returned! Hurray!
However, some parts of my brain have vanished. I play Scrabble online. I don't know what the letters spell. I just keep trying different combinations until the word is accepted.
I wake up in the morning with a song in my head. Cool! But I also am acting quirkier than I ever have in my life. Drumming on my thighs waiting for a traffic light to change. Making weird sounds. I used to be "serious" and "responsible". I don't quite recognize this "me".
Should I be concerned about the brain disconnect and the quirky behaviors?
Janis, I more than understand your problem. I too have been waking up with a song in my head and have no clue why. I just started taking wellbutrin about a week ago. I also am having problems remembering certain things, which really is awful since I am a history teacher.
Look up "Gwen Olsen" on youtube or google video.
