I just posted this on another topic and I cut and paste. Be optimistic!
Hi, I was recently prescribed Wellbutrin. I take the generic, Buproprion 150 MG SR. I didn't even know I was depressed, quite frankly. Since starting these meds (I asked for diet pills but my Dr insisted I try this first), I have lost 11 pounds in one month.
I was binging out of control for over a year and the day I started Wellbutrin just over a month ago it stopped. Cold turkey. For the first time in ages I can stay awake in the morning. I have been taking two brisk walks a day, more than three miles most days.
My dr's nurse practitioner tried to prescribe something else but when I pressed the weight gain issue she came back with Wellbutrin as an option.
I still feel hunger but it isn't ruling my life. I feel like a new woman.
