Avatar n tn What is the actual difference between Wellbutrin XL and Wellbutrin SR. Will both cause the same weight loss.
Avatar n tn What is the difference between Wellbutrin SR and XL? I've been on 150 mg. of XL for 2 weeks now and other than feeling a bit jittery throughtout the day, I feel fine. (Even losing some weight). After reading all the blogs on this medicine, I'm scared of what may happen.
Avatar n tn I have noticed some difference between budeprion xl and wellbutrin xl as well. I keep thinking that it's all in my head and wishing that it was since there is a big difference in price between the two. There is definitely something wrong with the generic kind...
Avatar n tn And fourth and last (thanks for sticking with me so far) - is there any noticeable difference between the XL and the SR formulations, as far as the final effect is concerned? I've had to switch to SR because it's available as a generic (and my financial situation demands that), and I'm wondering what I should expect. Same amount (150mg), same AM intake. Any help would be appreciated.
Avatar n tn I believe that Wellbutrin XL has DANGEROUS side-effects for some people that will never experience these effects under Wellbutrin SR. This is a long post about an interaction with Wellbutrin XL. If you have not experienced the effects of Wellbutrin XL causing Anger, inability to concentrate, irrational behavior - you would do well to skip reading these first hand accounts. I was using Zoloft 200mg for over three years with no Anger problems.
Avatar n tn I've been on Wellbutrin for about 5 years and it's worked wonders for my depression. I also believe it's been a key factor in losing weight and maintaining my weight loss. During the first year and a half of taking it, I lost 30 pounds. Although I didn't necessarily feel less hungry, I felt like I had more energy and I was more in control of my impulsive behavior.
Avatar m tn Also, heard Wellbutrin and drinking don't mix very well. So between the Wellbutrin and my Rosacea, I guess my weekly beers are out for awhile :( FL: Don't think SAD is it. Think what's making me down is having to stay inside more than staying inside. I did buy one of those SAD lamps many winters ago but ended up returning it. SF: You're right. I posted the article but you picked out the "bending over" part :) You know, can't even remember what that article was about. LOL.
Avatar n tn I was on celexa for 6 mos and it made me gain 20lbs and just started wellbutrin sr and was wondering if this has helped anyone lose weight? I am starting off with 150 sr 1x a day for 3 days and tommarrow I start 300sr , so far side effects are insomnia.
656309 tn?1224493459 Not sure if it's withdrawals from Celexa, or side effects from the Wellbutrin SR. Took 40mg of Celexa for a year and Psychiatrist switched me to Wellbutrin SR 150mgs a day. He told me to stop the Celexa cold turkey. That I'd be fine, and just start taking the Wellbutrin SR the next day. This was on Oct 4th that I started the Wellbutrin SR and stopped the Celexa. Glad my sex drive is back, but other than that, I feel like taking my head off with a chainsaw about 1/2 the time.
Avatar n tn I was on celexa and gained 50 lbs.so be careful with that one, but I had my doctor try me on wellbutrin and I am losing the weight.
Avatar n tn Also, what is the difference between the Xl and the SR? Have you lost any weight while take this? I've read tons of blogs from people losing on this drug.
Avatar n tn About this same time I had decided to start weaning myself off of Effexor for several different reasons. I was taking both Wellbutrin XL and Effexor XR and was just tired of taking so many medications ( I am also on hormone replacement therapy). The side effects I had from Effexor were not that totally bad; sweating and being hot when nobody else was, decreased sexual feelings, not as intense orgasms. I had quit about a year ago but don't remember feeling like this at all.
Avatar f tn My doc put me on Wellbutrin XL 150 mg once a day but it's not really helping. I still get very distracted and can't focus on just one thing. Are there any adults that have experienced success with other medications? I already take Omega-3 fish oils, B-complex, etc. and exercise 30 min./day Thanks!
544292 tn?1268886268 Welcome Tramadol Warriors! We ... turned .... 40 ... LOL Welcome and I hope you will make yourself at home. Snuggle down, get comfy. There's a lot of information and experience here with getting off Tramadol. It's not impossible, lots of peeps here now living Tram Free Lives! Love & Healing!
Avatar n tn It was a life saver, but it also medicated all my feelings into oblivion and put me in a limbo state that was a very poor place for decision-making and facing certain realities. So, between that, the sexual side effects and the weight gain, I went off - with my doctor's blessing. The withdrawl symtoms were terrible. After a very nasty few weeks, I feel better and have lost about 4 pounds.
Avatar m tn I take a fairly high dose, 80mg a day. I also take Provigil and and two meds for Bipolar, Lamictal and Wellbutrin. I was diagnosed Bipolar over 6 years ago but still struggled quite a bit, even though medicated to treat this illness. When I started being treated for The ADD it was kind of like a missing link or puzzle piece in my treatment had been found. You cannot tell me that it does not exsist. That is absurd!
Avatar n tn I have not noticed a difference in my appetite and that little benefit is the one thing that keeps me willing to stick with it, although not the primary purpose for me. How are you doing now? It's been some time since you posted? are you improving? I would love to see people update their progress. My family is enouraging me to stop this drug because of the cognitive issues - the say that I "used to have a bwain". Honestly, I have not noticed any positive effects yet.
Avatar f tn All in all, I hope these side effects are worth it! I hope I see a difference in the migraines and maybe even the loss of appetite (hopefully)! If not, I'm definitly stopping this. I dont like feeling like I'm staring into space all day!!! Have a great weekend!!
Avatar m tn But there might be short term extra shrinkage which will only last a day or two, then hopefully you will return to your normal state, which for me is usually half way between hanging and small and tight. But the hang I get from the pills is usually good, and you can feel your penis is warmer too with all the blood flow. If you know you have a chance with a woman take one the day before or in the morning, and avoid that embarrasing situation. May help with erections too.
Avatar n tn 30am and 7am shaky and with my heart pounding -- every morning. What is this? Some latent anxiety from my subconscious? Anyway, I have learned the best way to handle is to get up and get moving. This works like a charm. If it is really early, say 5:30am -- I'll go back to bed after a while but usually have a fitful and restless sleep until I get up @ 7:30am. Any thoughts or suggestions as to why this happens in the early morning? During the day I'm fine... THanks!
