Re: EFFEXOR WITHDRAWALS were TERRIBLE...should I take Wellbutrin?
Ive been on Wellbutrin for a few years now and I stopped for a week or so when my prescription lapsed one time. I had absolutly NO withdrawl symptions during that week. From what Ive read, Wellbutrin is pretty good as far as that goes. I do have a high tolerance for withdrawl symptoms and pain in general so my opinion might not be the best one, but as far as I know, Wellbutrin isnt as bad as others.
You had mentioned weight gain... Wellbutrin is a good one for fighting that. I wasnt really overweight to begin with, but I lost weight on the Wellbutrin. I have a habit of overeating or compulsively eating and when I started the Wellbutrin, my cravings for all the junk food were greatly decreased. I think its kind of the same principle of it helping smokers stop.
Id suggest trying it.
