it really cant be predicted what will happen with these antidepressants, you have to try them and see, compulsive eating is caused occasionally

Re: WELLBUTRIN please read

I am taking Wellbutrin XL and it is the best med I have been on. Effexor made me gain 40lbs and was still depressed. Now I have lost 30lbs and quit smoking and have my sex drive back. I have been on almost everything, Wellbutrin is here to stay...Hope you have the same luck.

Re: WELLBUTRIN please read

Thank you!
Lexapro didn't cause me to eat compulsively I just started gaining weight and I had not changed my diet(I eat pretty good) So I started exercising daily and I couldn't even get one pound off. I am not heavy, I weigh 155 and I am 5'5 I should weigh about 145 I would like to be at that weight what I weighed before lexapro........My sex drive went down the tube! I am a newly wed and I just can't have that. I am praying that wellbutrin xl helps because I have read lots of negative things on it and it scares me.
terri, thanks for your response it gives me hope. are you taking it for anxiety? I hope I have as good as luck with it as you!!! congrats on your 30pound weight loss and quitting smoking!!!!

Carly
