I have been taking the wellbutrin xl 450mg for an extended period of time.  I wish I had lost weight, it seems like I never  have that side effect, only the weight gain.  As for being "very gripey", I think sometimes the depression can be a cause for that also.  I bite my tongue a lot and just keep quiet rather than say what I am really thinking.  Good luck to you and I hope you find something that will work well for  you. I don't think I have found "the drug" yet, but keep hoping it is out there....
