Common Questions and Answers about What does wellbutrin xl look like


579473 tn?1226024185 I look at it like this.... I have a severe condition that I must take AD medication to control. It *****, but it beats feeling like **** all the time and wanting to end my life.
1190024 tn?1264692022 Hi - I have a pretty extensive background, but will try to make this as short & easy to comprehend as possible. I'm a 33 year old single mom who has struggled with "mental issues" for many years. At the age of 15 I was placed on Prozac for depression. Over the next 15 years I tried Zoloft, Paxil, Lexapro, and several others.
1699033 tn?1514116733 Okay, I have been on Wellbutrin 300 xl (generic) for more than a month now. I am still a little jittery in the morning but not as bad. I get headaches every afternoon/evening and so I have to beat them to the punch with an Aleve at about 2:00 and even then I may still get the headache but just not as bad. Constipation has set in, still dealing with the dry mouth, and I have breakthrough panic attacks. I have been trying to self-coach my way through them..
Avatar n tn I have recently been put on Wellbutrin XL 150 mg for two weeks, then it goes to 300mg. I have also given Klonapin .05mg twice a day. I used Wellburtin 150SR to stop smoking, I did not seem to have problems, however in all the research I have read , it says that Wellbrtin should not be given to patients with eating disorders. Can you please explain why, and should I be taken off this medication? Due to the fact that I am bulimic, and have been for quite some time.? Please advise.
Avatar n tn He prescribed a does of 20mg of Paxil in combination with the 300mg of Wellbutrin I am already taking. I have not begun taking it yet, since after researching the Paxil I have found many stories of extreme weight gain and sexual dysfunction. I know that if I gained a great deal of weight that I would handle it well. Also, I am hoping at some point to reconcile with my boyfriend and the sexual side effects would be a big issue there too.
656309 tn?1224493459 I thought it was because the med was generic, but even after getting the brand name, I still feel like ****. My posts even look rambling, disjointed, fearful and crazy. I was on celexa before and slept all the time, and was numb to the world. I have never felt this angry, aggressive and irritable before. (on or off medication) I think I'll be replacing the WB with exercise, good eating, and some good vitamins and supplements.
1390847 tn?1344661068 I havent gotten the perscription filled yet becuase I dont like messing with meds and I am researching Wellbutrin, but I'd rather hear real life experiences...not just what websites designed to promote Wellbutrin says. Can anyone tell me a little about their experience with it? Side effects, withdrawls..? is it addictive? Success? failure? Im really looking for anything.
Avatar n tn Today the lightbulb went on and I decided to look up what affect Wellbutrin might have on weight loss/gain. I'm not depressed so I don't want to take it for depression but I am so alarmed at this weight gain that I think I will go back and finish off my bottle until I figure it out. Has anyone else had this problem with quiting Wellbutrin?
Avatar n tn I've been on wellbutrin xl for 4 months for moderate transient depression. I've had very few lasting side-effects. Recently though, I've been experiencing sporadic vertigo -to the point where i've had to put my head between my knees-, and at night, I experience chest tightness and feel like breathing stops being involuntary, and have to sit up and think about it to keep breathing. I even wake myself up gasping when I'm falling asleep. Could this be a side-effect of the wellbutrin?
Avatar f tn But every one is different. Good luck to you. I like the Wellbutrin because the side effects are non existant for me.
Avatar f tn Hi all, Today is day 2 on Wellbutrin XL 150mg generic. First, I will list all the side effects I am noticing. None of which my dr mentioned, other than to take it in the morning: On my first day on Wellbutrin, I noticed an increase in energy and excessive yawning. Woke up today (day 2) with a piercing headache and the muscles in my legs are sore like I ran a marathon, my abdominal muscles ache like I did a ton of sit ups, and a couple hours ago I noticed lower back soreness.
Avatar n tn I have been on wellbutrin xl for a little over a month. I feel like I am starving all of the time! I can't seem to control myself. My mood is better most of the time but I still feel like I could explode! Maybe I haven't been taking it long enough. Before I started taking it I had lost 40 lbs. I have started to regain some of that. Also, the seizures that everyone is talking about is making me a little nervous. I also take metformin.
Avatar m tn I read that Wellbutrin is actually a medicine to help you quit smoking as well, so in order to continue the feel good state, I started taking Wellbutrin XL 150mg, I've been on it for a week now, I can't feel any major differences maybe just placebo effect that I feel better and would like to know if I can up my dose to 300MG. How can I know if I am suffering from depression?
Avatar n tn I was on that for two months with only modest improvement. I since have seen a new psychiatrist who put me on Wellbutrin Xl 150 for one week and felt ok, then increased to 300mg. He also increased the Buspar to 60mg a day at the same time of adding the Wellbutrin. The first couple of days I felt better but then I went down hill fast at the 300mg level and he reduced it to 150mg. I have this gut feeling that the Buspar and Wellbutrin are fighting each other, multiple reasons to believe this.
Avatar f tn I still don't feel 100% and have been back on the brand TOPROL XL for 9 days now. Keep in mind I didn't know what was happening to me, I never thought twice about the switch to generic, it was cheaper and I also had a lot of stress going on in my life at the time. My pharmacacy switched my "Toprol XL 50 mg" to a Generic one called "Metoprolol Succinate ER 50 mg" (manufactured by Sandoz) in December 2007.
Avatar n tn Since then I have been on Wellbutrin 300XL. After taking it for two months and I was feeling fantastic. I was happiest I had ever been in my life. I had more energy than ever and I was at my personal best. Just since last week it has totally stopped working for me. I feel down and careless. I can't be bothered to do anything. Even taking care of my kids has become a chore. I don't have any motivation and just want to avoid everbody and wish for the day to be over soon.
5050843 tn?1362873926 Did you have any of the "brain zaps" while transitioning over? im transitioning from zoloft to wellbutrin & feel like my eyes kinda skip a beat, like they stop when i turn my head & have to "restart"? Are those brain zaps??
957301 tn?1257694288 ) Anyway, I've been on all kinds of anti-depressents, currently on Wellbutrin XL which seems to work the best. But never taken it without also loadin' up on vics, so we'll see. I don't even know if I am depressed, or if I was back when the GP pushed the AD's at me. I've had two life-threatening illnesses that are strange infections/inflammations that almost killed me and no one has ever been able to figure out why.
587279 tn?1223704355 I feel like the Wellbutrin does not work as well anymore. I too Wellbutrin for 10 years and loved the side effects. Ten years later, I started again and it does not work as well? Why? I lost weight, stopped oversleeping and felt normal?
Avatar n tn The bioidentical estrogen patch I use is put out by a drug company ...would have to look up the name, Navarto?...something like that...but some women chose to have their estrogen mixed in a compounding pharmacy. I have had that done, but prefer the patch. My biggest concern is the lack of Bio Progesterone in our systems. Once you stop ovulating (obviously after you have had ovaries removed) you stop producing Progesterone.
Avatar n tn sorry it took so long to get back to you. i was wondering what your issues are and why you think you should be on meds. like what type of med. suits you? just curious. i have issues (hah ahha) so i was just wondering what yours are?
Avatar f tn The dr's also diagnosed my with depression, which I get 450mg's of wellbutrin XL for. Fibromyalgia was diagnosed 6 months ago, I started taking Neurontin 300mg 3X a day. ( I tapered off that one b/c i thought it was making me sicker) The dr. also says I have bi-polar and ordered me geodon..I could only take this for a week and I was a zombie the whole time. I have exhausted ALL options in regards to muscle relaxants..
Avatar f tn Just to let you know, I take Lithium, Lexapro, Wellbutrin XL, Ativan and Ambien CR. I figured I would do the research myself and present the info to my doc. Open for any helpful info. Thanks!!
Avatar f tn Does anyone take Wellbutrin XL with this? How is that working out? I am concerned as take that also.
Avatar m tn But, I spoke with the doctor today about it and he said that while it does help that it doesn't do much. I also talked to him about switching to Wellbutrin due to the sexual side effects from Effexor. Thanks for the info, though. I will definitely look into the items you mentioned and consider it after I see what happens with the Wellbutrin.
Avatar f tn Hi, My doctor decided to switch me from Well-Butrin XL (300mg) to Cymbolta (60mg) earlier in the week. I took my first one Tuesday night and woke up several hours later with extreme nausea. He also mentioned that I might have a swimming feeling. Well, the nausea was so severe that I decided to take a phenergan (spl?). That helped out tons and I slept most of yesterday but today I've got medicine head, sweating and a very decreased appetite today. And I really didn't eat much yesterday.
Avatar n tn My doctor had given me a prescirption for Wellbutrin XL not for depression or anything like that but for weight loss. Apparently the most common side effects of XL is a reduced desire to eat, and an increased libdo. My insurance would not give me XL only SR. The first few days I wasn't hungry after that... well lets just say next week i am going to get the B!@ shot. How long have you been on Wellbutrin? If not at all i would wait and see what type of effect that has on you first.
Avatar n tn My doctor perscribed Wellbutrin XL (150 mg)for now and after a week up the dosage to 2 pills per day. What kind of side affects can this medication have? The little sample bottles don't come with any of that information and when I asked my doctor, she said that their is no side affects that she knows of. I'm pretty healthy, other then the pain and aches you get when you are over 50. My father though had a heart attack and so did his father.
