Wellbutrin: Info pleassse

I've heard a lot of positve things about Wellbutrin. Mainly that there is no weight gain and no fatigue. Can anyone share a little about this drug. I've tried Effexor, Celexa, and Luvox and they have all made me gain weight, sleep, and feel drained. Thanks

Wellbutrin and Serzone mostly do not promote weight gain, but they don't work for everyone. Sometimes Wellbutrin is added to an antidepressant, but many people take it alone. Both meds have worked separately for pople, you just have to try and see if one of them is for you.

Re: Wellbutrin: Info pleassse

I have a few close friends who are taking wellburin and they seem to like it, it has definately made a difference in them, you personally don't notice the change as much as other thts why you have to be patient and give it a chance. It's nice because it's not so strong it''s perfect, Also if you are a smoker than it's lso suppose to help you out there. Ya my mom takes it and she likes it alot , about the weight thing it doesn't dramatically change your weight, but you may lose a few pounds because it decreases your appetite, I looked up this website once to find out more about the anti depressant for myself and it gave be alot of helpful inf. I just lokked up Wellbutrin and read on from there, i recommend it.

My mother was on Wellbutrin and it worked well for her. I'm nearly sure she didn't gain weight; I think she may have lost during that time.

Re: Wellbutrin: Info pleassse

I didn't gain weight while on Wellbutrin, but I also didn't lose weight. I had previously gained 20 pounds while taking Zoloft, and hoped the Wellbutrin would help me lose some, but it didn't. I stopped taking it because it made my ears ring badly, and it keyed me up which interfered with sleep. Personally I'm looking to get more sleep. It did help me feel better, though.
