01-15-14, 11:51 AM
After being on adderall xr for almost 10 years (it started to wear off faster despite being on high dosage) and trying several anti-depressants I started wellbutrin sr yesterday. It seemed to desensitize my adderall and then I slept after work from 6pm til 8am today which with addys in my system usually wouldnt have happened.
My doc said wellbutrin would help my adderall work better... I know I just started it ... but please tell me this is normal so far and will change once I adjust to the medication :(

day 2: feeling so depressed. not even feeling up to interacting with my 9 month old. and having spouts of random rage attacks. ex: flipped out because someone ate all the cheese in the fridge. feeling hopeless. I feel like this is how wellbutrin is always gonna make me feel. and im DYING for a drink! used to have a beer or two every night for the past 9 months but I'm afraid to drink one because my psychiatrist etc said it could increase risk of seizure. even though so could not drinking....

If tomorrow is more of the same or worse, please call your doctor.

I called my doc today they said if nothing changes by monday to give them a call. I just wish I knew if these were just side effects that will go away or if this is how I am gonna be on wellbutrin forever....

It took me about 6 weeks before I felt the effects of the Wellbutrin and a few weeks for the side effects to subside. I started at 150mg and then needed it increased to 300mg. It did take another 4-6 weeks to feel the effects of the increase but I didn't have the problems with the side effects. Well if I did they were minimal and I didn't notice.
I have been on it a couple years now and it have worked very well for me

I've been on 150 mg for two weeks . I'm familiar with Wellbutrin . My drive is coming back but I am scattered and cannot focus nor can I recall or remember things regarding executive function. Kinda sucks !! If I don't take it my motivation drags. , if I do take it my
Motivation improves and I get stupid!! Fun times-
