Quote from littlejmb:Hi Gus,
Are you taking another AD's? I was getting off Lexapro (although it worked great for me) and getting on Wellbutrin XL. I haven't noticed any palpitations or great energy, but that maybe because I am slightly going through Lexapro withdrawal. Are you taking your Wellbutrin in the mornings? If not, that's why you can't sleep. I have learned to take mine earlier in the a.m. and it usually doesn't bother me. If you still have trouble sleeping, you can take the herb Valarian and it helps you calm down and get sleepy. It's like a herbal valium.
From what I understand, Wellbutrin in a slow acting AD, and will most likely take about six weeks to fully get the benefits from it. I am just yesterday on it for one month. So far, have not received the sexual benefits from it, but still keeping my fingers crossed!!
No, this is the only AD that I am on. I had taken Paxil
CR about a year ago, and it made me so lazy that I couldn't function. I decided to go w/ Wellbutrin XL because of the lower sexual side effects, the added appetite suppresion, and the fact that I want to kick smoking as well. It's only been a week and I've gone from half a pack a day to 4 - 6 cigs a day. And tonight I had no desire to buy a pack and it felt so surreal. I'm usually the one lunging at people for a cigarette first thing in the morning, and now I hardly have the desire.
The reason I decided to start the AD was because I was always sad. I had no energy to do things. I had no concentration. I would sit on the couch for 3 hours and think about what I need to do, but not do it. I would wake up the morning and just have these hopeless feelings. I said to myself "This is enough, I'm not going to live life like this"
I took my dose today at 6am, so I hope I'll be able to sleep tonight. I bought this product from the health food store called "Deep sleep" It has all those relaxing herbs including valerian. Let's see what happens tonight. Be patient, within a week or two you'll be climaxing like crazy! lol (crossing fingers)
I went through menopause w/ my mom, it came early for her so I understand how you might feel. Hang in there, it get's easier as time progresses. At least you won't have to see Aunt flow anymore...lol
