Red face Wellbutrin making me tired

I have been taking Wellbutrin sr, 300mg for 16 days now and haven't felt any of the wonderful effects it is suppose to do. I feel tired, nausea when I eat, not motivated to do much, and not excited about life. I thought I was gonna have energy and start being able to do things. I have been depressed for awhile now because I didn't have a job, but now I got one two weeks ago and I don't even feel better from it. I go to work feeling tired and spaced out like I just want to go home and rest. Has anyone had these issues with wellbutrin? Should I keep taking it since it's only been 2 weeks or taper off of it?

Thanks!

Different people react to psych meds in different ways. Let your doctor know that you are getting bad side effects and that it isn't working.

Give the wellbutrin 2 months to work. It will start to work, also are you on the generic or name brand? I find the name brand works much better

Re: Wellbutrin making me tired

give the wellbutrin 2 months to kick in!

if by then it doesnt work, then decide to change meds, but switching back and forth between meds will mess you up worse

Like Jane said different people react differently. When I was prescribed it, I did not feel any effects nor benefits and discontinued the use of it.

I've give it some time. Getting onto it did not feel good for me. I was very nauseated on and off, especially when exercising, and was pretty tired too, but those gradually went away and now it is a great med for me.

Re: Wellbutrin making me tired

Try lowering your dose. Some people need to start out gradually and work themselves up to therapeutic dose. Try taking half and see what happens. Good luck!
