I am having side effects from Wellbutrin Sr after one week: Had to lower dose because of
insomnia, but now feel Nasty agitation, increased anxiety, atpical depression. This has been only ONE week. I have read of some people who said this med can be a bit tricky
in the beginning, others who discontinued.
I was unable to reach my doctor.
I certainly suggest you try to reach your ASAP
I hope other members will comment on your post and mine
Are you sure the symptoms your getting are not from discontinuation of the Prozac?
Wellbutrin has a very stimulating quality to it. I took this med years ago, but couldn't tolerate the insomnia and shakiness that came with it. I felt like I had drunk 10 cups of coffee and couldn't think straight.
Of course, like Hensley says, it could be from the discontinuation of the Prozac.
The insomnia has still not gone away for me and I have been on Wellbutrin for a year. It has turned me into a raging beast. I'm an agressive driver and a nasty witch to everyone. I'm to stimulated and obsessed with food... the sleepless nights and horrendous moods are going to make me certifiably crazy. I'm working on getting off Wellbutrin but have no clue where to go next. Good Luck.
PS I huge caution, do NOT drink any alcohol on these pills. It lowers your seizure threshold and enhances the effects of alcohol... trust me
Hey. I have read through the forums and wanted to share my experience with wellbutrin. I have been on wellbutrin for a year. I stared by taking 150mg twice daily and recently lowered my dose by only taking 150mg once a day. I, too, have become agressive to where I get such rage built up inside me that I feel like I could literally tear my hair our or agressively assault someone. I have never been like that before and I am afraid I am going to lose it. I also experience extreme dizziness, fatigue, and confusion. I do like that I hadn't noticed any chage in my sex drive nor my weight (maybe LOST a few pounds). Overall, I don't like this medication because of the side effects especially since I don't think its helping with my depression anymore since I have had a lot of symptoms again. This is my first and only antidepressant prescription. I'm thinking about switching to prozac but reviews I have read may be steering me away.
