1190024 tn?1264692022 Hi, I am new to this site and hope I can contribute some helpful information. I was dx with severe depression 25 yrs. ago and a couple of years was redx. with Bipolar I w/mixed episodes, severe depression. I also have been thru a mixture of different "cocktails". I am currently on a cocktail of 300 mg. effexor, 20 mg. of celexa and 30 mg of Risperdal and I am having some success...finally.
Avatar n tn Not sure of your exact question regarding weight loss. I do know that sometimes Wellbutrin helps in cases where people have cravings and/or addictions (to gambling for example and also nicotine I think)...and I also know that people do not experience the same problems regarding weight loss as they do with the other SSRI anti-depressants such as Zoloft and the like.
Avatar n tn The thing is, for the two weeks it's working, Wellbutrin is really great. No side effects for me at all. No weight loss, unfortunately, but I didn't gain either (been on it for over a year now). And my libido is much stronger. I wish I knew what to do about the bad two weeks though. I'm like a different person living a different life - everything seems colored differently, from my kids to my husband to my home to my career to my life in general.
Avatar n tn for 2 weeks now and my main side effects are weight loss and feeling jittery. I haven't noticed the blurry vision (yet). I have 5 kids under age 10 so I'm on the go constantly. I'm willing to stay on it and see what happens.
Avatar n tn Can Wellbutrin XL cause nightmares? I have noticed since I have been taking it since November 16th that I have nightmares every night.
Avatar n tn As with all medications, you may experience side effects when you take WELLBUTRIN XL. Side effects may be more common shortly after you start treatment. The most common side effects with WELLBUTRIN XL are weight loss, loss of appetite, dry mouth, skin rash, sweating, ringing in the ears, shakiness, stomach pain, agitation, anxiety, dizziness, trouble sleeping, muscle pain, nausea, fast heartbeat, sore throat, and urinating more often.
Avatar n tn I was really excited about talking to my dr about welbutrin because I thought it was an anti depressant along with all these great side effects (weight loss, increased sex drive). Of course I would love increased sex drive and weight loss but I really want to not feel so depressed.
Avatar n tn Since Budeprion XL’s introduction in 2006, numerous consumers who had previously been treated with Wellbutrin XL reported adverse side effects upon switching to Budeprion XL, including headaches, insomnia, nausea, and mood swings. Many patients also reported a loss of antidepressive effect.
Avatar n tn I have been on Wellbutrin Xl tabs, 150mg for the last 5 months. I have been gaining weight and the doctor said that I probably would loose weight on this drug. I am going to stop the drug as I am not going to gain all this weight. Please let me know why this if happening?
Avatar n tn I'm not sure that Wellbutrin is a weight loss miracle. For me, I've noticed that it curbs my appetite tremendously. I forget that I'm even hungry. I see that others feel the opposite, so it depends on the person. But I did switch drugs because I was on Zoloft for a year and a half and gained 30 lbs. and could not, for the life of me, lose any of it. I could eat 700 calories a day and exercise 30 minutes a day and still not lose one pound.
Avatar n tn wants me to try Effexor if this doesn't work, but I'm not excited about the reported side effects. If I gain any more weight I'll be even more depressed. Also, my Dr. won't give me Benzos since they're potentially addicitive. I tried Xanax in the past and it worked so well! Sigh... Thanks for any help!

587279 tn?1223704355 Has anyone had long term side effects from Wellbutrin or Zyban? I have had long term neurological problems that seemed to be triggered by a reaction to wellbutrin. I was wondering if others have experienced any problems from either of these drugs. Please contact me and let me know. I am suffering from muscle wasting, muscle twitching, severe memory problems and I am 32 years old. No doctor nor specialist can figure out what is causing my decline in health.
370801 tn?1264408618 After searching the internet and coming up with nothing time and time again about this mix... I am left in a slight dilemma. Firstly,I take Wellbutrin XL 150 mg per day for depression. I find it is working well for me. It does not cause me to be agitated at all. In fact, I feel totally normal on it. It has had the opposite effect on me I find, making me more relaxed or sleepy at times. I take the Wellbutrin XL at 8am everyday. By the time 5pm rolls around, I want to hit the gym.
1390847 tn?1344661068 Side effects of Wellbutrin SR include agitation, constipation, dizziness, dry mouth, insomnia, nausea, rash, sweating, and/or weight loss. Side effects of Wellbutrin XL may include abdominal pain, agitation, anxiety, constipation, diarrhea, dizziness, dry mouth, heart palpitations, increased urination, insomnia, muscle soreness, nausea, rash, ringing in the ears, sore throat, and/or sweating.
Avatar f tn My physician responded to my request for help, and being discouraged about my lack of weight loss by trying to prescribe prozac for weight loss and of course depression. Since when does Prozac aide weight loss? I did not receive any response to what else could I do/try/ who to see etc. Or an answer as to what they syntroid was doing for me, since I was still not losing weight, but losing hair, and still had high triglycerides. Also no response to my ??
Avatar n tn (Even though not bi-polar, Lamictal is working well with the wellbutrin for me) The Wellbutrin/Lamictal caused a 50lb weight loss but I was nauseous for months. The Wellbutrin doesn't help with the anxiety I was having so I had Lexapro added. That did make me gain weight so I went off it and just take Klonopin for anxiety. Now I am having more problems with depression so my doctor increased my Lamictal dose. If you take Lamictal, you MUST increase/decrease doses SLOWLY.
Avatar f tn I was on it for about a year 3 years ago. I loved it! The only side effects were dry mouth and weight loss(not a negative). About 5 months ago my doctor put me on citalopram which made me feel like a zombie and I started gaining weight so we decided to switch to the wellbutrin. I have been on the wellbutrin for about 7 weeks now and off the citalopram for a little over 1 week. Im having a completely different experience than I did before.
Avatar n tn Having read about it I didn't think it was for anxiety which explains why it didn't work. I have read that the Wellbutrin doesn't have side effects or weight gain so it is used with another medicine to offset those things. If I see that the effexor is working I will ask about coming off the Wellbutrin. I am starting with the smallest dosage of Effexor and increasing each week for 4 weeks. I really appreciate discussion boards on many subjects.
214255 tn?1205639236 my dr told me this is an appetite suppressant so i think slight weight loss might be normal for wellbutrin.

803381 tn?1237921077 the transition to Wellbutrin was very smooth. I did not observe any sexual side effects with wellbutrin. for a period of time I took 150 mg thrice a day i.e. 450mg a day. It was great. In comparison to other meds I have taken before. I currently take 1 tab of 300mg XL in the morning have been on this dose for a year..its working for me. I would recommend that you try it a few days. It takes about 6-8 weeks to see results.
Avatar n tn It is also possible to combine a lower dose of an SSRI that has been helpful (to lower the chance of weight gain and other side effects) with Wellbutrin, to get the benefits of both types of medication. Best wishes...
Avatar n tn Has anyone taken Effexor and, if so, did you experience any weight related side-effects. I am worried about gaining weight and will not take this medicine until I find out. I'm just scared because SSRIs cause gain. Even though this is not an SSRI, it could cause weight gain.
Avatar m tn Yesterday morning I popped my first Wellbutrin XL. Wellbutrin for those neuro pharmacologically healthy is an AD (antidepressant). First time with ADs, and as mentioned in a previous thread, it's not so much I feel *depressed* as feeling a lack of motivation to get back to what is left of my former life.
Avatar f tn To anyone who has suffered serious side effects of Metoprolol Succinate ER (Generic form of Toprol XL), please take 5 minutes and fill out an FDA medwatch form. The web site is: https://www.accessdata.fda.
Avatar n tn I am wondering at what point I can say one way or another what way I am affected by this med (in terms of side effects, not the weight loss and sexual part - I know that may take weeks).
Avatar n tn I have also ran out and have been without it for several days and the side effects are awful lots of vertigo and nightmares,I have also gained weight and just don't feel like when I do take it like I and suppose to which is 99% of the time that it is all that great . My Dr. told me nothing about how difficult it was to come off of and I am pretty upste about it, sorry I dont have any answer for you but if you figure it out let me know thanks!
