Cool Re: 2nd day of wellbutrin

What dosage are you on? I am prescribed XL150mg and was taking lexapro 20mg at night. I could stilllllllllllllll sleeeeeeeep . I was so worried about getting on W/B because with some people their hearts beat faster, etc. And it didn't happen to me. So I'm going up to 300mg. Some people it revs up on 150mg , others it doesn't , so if you had no problem the 1st or 2nd day, give it a try!

kjj

Re: 2nd day of wellbutrin

im starting on 100mg once a day for the first week then twice a day after that then i go back in one month and he said he would increase it again when i go back to see him. today has been a great day between them both porbably just the valium but either way i felt really good today and was able to do my work outside of the house with no issues!

Heh, they don't make W/B in 100mg that I know of, I used to take 75mg 3 times a day until they came out with the S/R and XL

I'm glad to hear u had no problems with it. You would have know by now.

And I had no problem with my increase. Why did the doc prescribe W/B..for depression, anxiety, etc.?

Re: 2nd day of wellbutrin

it really is 100mg lol i have a history of depression/anxiety, since i have moved out of state my depression and anxiety hit full force and I have tried to wait it out hoping it would clear up once i became familiar with my surroundings but it actually got worse to the point that i could not got to town alone i had to take osmeone with me or i had a panic attack. the depression was worse then it had been in years as i would cry at the drop of a hat, didnt want to do anyhtng except lay around.
before i moved my old dr gave me hydroxyzine to take on an as needed basis to help with my anxiety, one day last week i tred going out with out it and i didnt think i would make it home, i drovepast a clinic and said enough is enough and i went in. I explained to the dr my history and explained i didnt want and anti depressant that would make me gain weight asothers had so he put meon wellbutrin 100.mg once a day in a few days ill go to two a day. i also was given the valium for the anxiety attacks. supposed to take those twice a day as well but so far once a day is plenty.

Re: 2nd day of wellbutrin

Wellbutrin comes in 100mg in the SR formula. And it's very good. I took Wellbutrin XL 300mg and hated life - I could not sleep. I moved to Wellbutrin XL 150mg and felt nothing. So, my doctor moved me to the SR formula at 100mg 2x daily. After a few months, I like it. I might even move to Wellbutrin SR 150mg 2x daily.

Re: 2nd day of wellbutrin

I have been on Wellbrutrin 150 mg for almost 2 years now. No major side effects and it is definitely helping me cope with depression and anxiety. It took a couple of weeks to kick in at first but no problems since.
