Wellbutrin Impatience

Can anyone tell me how long it will take before I begin to feel the effects of taking Wellbutrin XL? I have been on 300mg for 2 weeks now and honestly feel no different. I had an emotional meltdown and am now wondering if, perhaps I should be seeking out hormone therapy rather than anti-depressants (had a hysterectomy last year). Also....no sex drive/libido...(though, that had disappeared before even starting the Wellbutrin). Thoughts, anyone?

Re: Wellbutrin Impatience

I've been on 300 mg of Wellbutrin for three months to help with quitting smoking. I'm not smoking, so that is something , but I feel as depressed as ever. BUT, I am new to the depression (and these forums) and have not yet been to a therapist/psychiatrist to diagnois me, I got the Wellbutrin from my GP. A social worker I've been to has told me that it doesn't seem like the drug has 'kicked in', whatever that means. Hope this helps.

Re: Wellbutrin Impatience

It can take up to six weeks before you feel its full effect or it kicks in.

Re: Wellbutrin Impatience

Been there, tried that, had the same reaction (no noticable response) as you. Some people swear by it. I'm just not one of them.
