I finally got prescribed Wellbutrin XL after asking a couple doctors about it. I feel like I have a mild depression possibly due to my thyroid condition, maybe another underlying condition they have yet to find. I don't know.
I have read some bad stories about the generic so I went to get it filled with the name brand but they didn't carry it
So I let the go ahead and fill it so I can at least try it and see how it works for ME.
I have taken Cylexa for a short period 3 years ago, helped my mood and coping but basically took away my libido completely, I couldn't even climax.
So I have read up on Wellbutrin and saw it could actually help my already decreased libido, my depressioin, my IBS, and possibly anxiety (note, I am taking Klonopin as needed also).
Who has had experience wtih this generic? Specifically taking the generic to begin with rather than switching from generic to brand name?
Things I am hoping it will help me with is:
Coping skills (with stress, with the "what if's", confidence lost)
Depression and hopeless feelings of the future
help ease my IBS pains (klonopin and xanax has actually helped that)
loss of emotional connections
I feel like I no longer have a heart enough to truely love someone anymore, hence the hopelessness of a future.
I'm coming up on a very hard month and an EXTREMELY emotionally destructive day coming up in a month. My ex, my first love, the only man I have ever actually seen myself marrying is getting married, and I got an invite.....and I want to be happy for him, I want to be there for him, but I don't know if I can get through it without breaking down. So I am very much hoping Bupropion will help me cope by then
He is still so deep in my heart it hurts to know that someone else is going to have a life with him. But he is happy and i Have to find a way to accept all of it.
Is anyone out there to help give me hope?
