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?
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.
