I went to my doctor today and she RX'ed Wellbutrin SR. She is starting me on 150 mg once a day for a week and then take it twice a day after the week is over. I had been on Effexor before and didn't like that "flat affect" feeling I had, so I weaned off about 4 months ago. But the depression and anxiety/worrysome thoughts are back....I have been fighting it, but don't want to keep on this way, I can barely even smile
I had read about Wellbutrin and their website said it was just for depression and not anxiety, but she said often that is just what the FDA has tested it for. She said usually once the depression goes away the anxiety does too....I thought they were 2 different issues.
Effexor used to make me feel spacey, so I took it at night. I hope this doesn't do this, since I have to take one in the morning.
Anyhow she wants me to try this and if it doesn't work, then she will change me to something else.
Anyone take it and how do you feel on it? Is alcohol a problem? I usually have about one drink a day.
