Re: very bad experience on Wellbutrin mixed with alcohol
Yep, it happens a lot when wellbutrin gets mixed with alcohol. A side effect of just plain old wellbutrin is RAGE, or intense RAGE. My experience in the summer of 2012 was a blackout episode, and according to medical personnal, a brief psychotic break. I can only remember extremely short snippets of what happened, and none of them actually happened. I can only remember a few hallucinations I had. What did happen was I assaulted my friends that I really care about, all whilst professing my love for one of them, which didn't actually exist. Wellbutrin not only compete for the same enzymes, they ENHANCE each others effects, and wellbutrins effects on the brain aren't currently known, and more importantly, the chemical by products of wellbutrin affects the mind in unknown ways. It's extremely chemically close to amphetamines, and within the body, can affect people in the same way as PCP, bursts of energy, uncontrollable rage, suicidal and homicidal tendencies, etc. Check out the FDA warnings for it, the ones they were forced to add yet somehow the "black box warning" never came with my script. Bupropion is a very old drug, it's just been repackaged basically.
