Common Questions and Answers about Bupropion anxiety

No I didn't have any headaches...it increased my anxiety though for about 4 weeks. I take the 300 mg XL tablets so my meds may be different from yours in that I'm on the extended release which is meant to build up in my system over time. My son went through a number of medications for ADHD that caused him headaches. He finally found that Adderall worked without giving him a headache. But again, meds are different for each individual.
JUST STARTED TO TAKE BUPROPION SR 150MG TO STOP SMOKING AND IT HAS MADE ME FEEL DIZZY ALL DAY. WILL THIS GO AWAY THE MORE I TAKE IT? OR WILL I FEEL LIKE THIS EVERYDAY?
Bupropion is the generic name for Wellbutrin. Years ago it had some success and I even know a few who quit using it. I would imagine, because it is also an antidepressant it might cause dizziness. It may take a few days to adjust and if it persists I would talk to your doctor. Good luck on your quit and if you need any support, we are here for you.
I was prescribed 300 mg xl of bupropion for anxiety that comes from a neurlogical problem in my eyes called Nystagmus. I think side effects of bupropion cause blurred vision and problems with one eye not moving in conjunction with the other which is horrible in addition to Nystagmus. I've lived with this because I was told bupropion is the least likeliest of pills to cause sexual disfunction. Is this true?
But the wellbutron (bupropion) as my Dr. and I figured out was making me feel so much worse. Really bad anxiety like I can't even describe, and constant crying. It just kept getting worsr when I thought it was just me and that the bupr. would take some time to take effect. So she upped my dosage and 2 days later I caled her and went back in. That's when I stopped the burpro. immidiatly and she put me on celexa and klonopin for the anxiety.
With me the Celexa just killed my libido and had no desire for anything. My doctor then weaned me off the Celexa and put me on the Bupropion XL. He started me for 7 days on 150 mg and then went to 300 mg. Everyone is different but the Bupropion gave me back my libido and still keeps my depression in check. I do recall my doctor saying the Bupropion can take a few weeks to get the full effect since I had already been on the Celexa.
what your experinencing is normal, it's the Anxiety side effect iv'e had the same exact thing happen to me except i was on Prozac, and on the 4th night i had a panic attack and never experienced that before and then for a week after i experienced Anxiety. Chest tighness and burning, and shortness of breath. Try not to worry about it because it makes it worse its just anxiety. Keep busy to keep your mind off of it.
Hello, I have been on Bupropion XL for a year now for my generalized anxiety disorder...I started out on lexapro, but the unfortunate sexual side effects were far too terrible..So my doc switched me to bupropion. That worked out great for me, I was having the best sex of my life with my fiancé, except I was losing way too much weight on it. I have always been thin, 5'5 & when I started out I was 123 pounds....last check up I was all the way down to 108 pounds, which I am not okay with.
At the age of 30, after a dramatic weight loss due to a vertical sleeve gastrectomy (50 lbs!) I started to experience SEVERE depression and anxiety for the first time in my lifea year ago. No history of emotional problems, nor is my life troubled. It's actually quite stable. I have spent this year exploring every medical possibility: B12, thyroid, neuro issues, heart issues, thiamine, and more. I broke down and started bupropion 8 weeks ago, I am up to 300XL and have been for 6 weeks.
I have been taking bupropion XL 300 once a day for about 2 months. I had been getting my prescription filled at our local walgreens. My insurance has "forced" me to go on a mail order drug program. (they wont pay for my prescriptions if i dont which is over $200) I started taking the mail order pharmacies bupropion for about 2 weeks same dosage and name... pills look different though.
took half my pill for 3 nights and on the 4th morning I started 150mg of Wellbutrin (Bupropion). This Monday will be 2 weeks that I have been on the Bupropion and it has been a living hell so far. The panic attacks have came back, I'm very irritable, short fused and cry at the drop of a dime-then immediately feel guilty afterwards.
My doctor swiched me from Paxil to Bupropion Sr. last week and He said that thier was no need to ween myself off of the Paxil. So I started the Bupropion Sr at 150mg once a day for 4 days and then was to go on to two a day, Well since I started the drug. I have been very dizzy and if I move my head to fast I feel like a jolt in my vision. I told my doctor and he suggested to stay on the one a day for another week. I also have lost a pound a day since starting the drug.
not sure what it is i guess it has alot to do with frame of thinking due to when you are having an anxiety attack...
So I have been taking Paroxetine(Paxil) for 4 months now and it changed my life, took away my O.C.D. and my social anxiety. But i had side effects so i started taking Bupropion(wellbutrin) So after 1 days dose which was 1 pill twice a day, I had my O.C.D. back about half as bad and my social axiety came back about half as bad. So i stopped taking the Bupropion and i am still taking the Paroxetine but it's not working as well as it did before.
I have had severe hot flashes for a number of years along with anxiety. I started to take bupropion sr 150 mg and it has subsided and I have been only on it for 5 days, I hate being on another anti depressant currently also on amitriptyline 50 mg for sleep a big weight gain issue with this.. the only side effect I get with bupropion sr is the is the ringing in my ears that bothers me. Anyone have similar issues?
Anyone have any experience with taking Chantix(Varenicline) or Zyban(bupropion) to quit smoking? From what I've read it seems Zyban works better and Chantix is a fairly new drug for it. Varenicline is a partial antagonist of the niACH receptor and Bupropion is an antidepressant that acts as a dopamine reuptake inhibitor, and nicotinic antagonist. Sounds similar in that they dumb/prevent the pleasure of smoking. Seems to me thought that the Bupr. sounds like it would work better since Varen.
I am being treated for the first time by a psychiatrist for my depression/ anxiety. I have been dealing with this since early adolecence and I am now in my late 20's. I have had 2-3 episodes of Major depression during that time , and possibly 2 episodes of a (light mania?). I am not sure if I am bi-polar. I was treated for postpartum depression after my second son and put on Paxil for anxiety with mild depression 4 years ago.
doc suggested going off of bupropion and switch to paxil. It has been 11 days. still taking the bupropion 150 and lamictal 100 but have had to start taking a lot more klonopin because to the rise in anxiety and I don't like taking this.
And highly suicidal. I'm better now, as far as the actute wds, but still have the anxiety and panic attacks which put me on them to begin with. Not sure I want to find a new dr to start again. I want to try natural. Anyone with severe anxiety find anything OTC or herbal that truly helps? Or is it a lost cause? I would strongly suggest never using benzo's to help get off opiates. Not what I used them for, but I see people do.
Can Paxil cause an increase in anxiety as you first start on it. I had the Anxiety under control but the depression did not seem to lift completely so trying a switch from bupropion to Paxil. thinking about increasing the lamictal but a little tight on money these days and where I am at they don't have the generic.
Hey girl how are you? You know on top of the meds we do have a real reason for anxiety. Change brings on anxiety and not knowing what the future holds does also. I worry that when I get off these meds it will be anti-climatic. You know, like I'll expect my life to suddenly turn perfect and it wasn't in the first place! You are agreat calming force for me, your picturesque descriptions and your tongue in cheek humor!

60 cymbalta 150 bupropion A bit of insomnia last night woe at 4. Feeling a tinge of anxiety this morning. need watch carefully if it is the bupropion causing it.
I have an 18 year old sister who has an anxiety issue. Our mother is bi-polar and is also a drug addict but she is the only one at this point that my sister will talk to her doctors.
Your anxiety sounds kind of like mine. Are you an everyday worrier? Totally over analyze everything? Does your stomach stay in a constant "knot" alot? Like bad butterflies in your stomach? That's my main symptom.. and it *****. The thing with benzos like lorazapam , is that they are addictive. I have lorazapam too! And am JUST LIKE YOU it sounds like. I only take it when I REALLY need one... and I usually just take one before bed if I have too..

What would be the best way to wean myself from this drug I no longer want to be on? I take Xanax for anxiety but only on a as needed basis and I feel that is all I need to get by for anxiety. Any advice will be greatly appreciated. I was diagnosed with PTSS when in a head on collision back in 89 but was off all meds for three years and then had to go back on them again.
