I hope I can share my experience, and that will help you open your mind to this medication.
First of all, I have a complicated medical history, which has meant lots of medications over the years. I have learned the best ways to go through the early weeks of taking a new medication.
When I first took my Wellbutrin, and this was only a month ago... Suddenly I had lots to say, and I felt light and happy. Honestly the first 3 days, I was talkative and really happy. I felt my depression had lifted greatly and my attitude was much more positive. I knew that it would level off over the next few weeks, so I relaxed and waited. Sure enough, I did settle into a more even mood, but still much better than before.
At this point, I have taken one full month of medication, and am happy with the results. They are subtle, yet noticeable to me and my immediate family. i have made it a point to take my medication at about the same time everyday, and I did not expect, nor experience any negative side effects. I did notice I needed to sit for a minute before standing when coming from a lying position, to avoid dizziness, but that is common with many medications.
Please do not focus on what is written on the bottle or the internet. Wellbutrin is a great medication for so many people. I encourage you to give it a try..
