I've been on generic bupropion for a while, it effectively takes the edge off my depression and anxiety and levels out my mood swings a bit, but despite being on the highest dose the mental illness was still interfering with my life, now I'm also taking lorazepam and dexedrine in addition to bupropion and the combination is satisfactory in terms of it's effectiveness.

I was in one of the worst depressive episodes of my life when I started taking Wellbutrin and it has vastly improved my base-line. I still feel the full range of human emotions but I can now keep them in check, and they don't control or destroy my life.

But, you can watch some of the past videos at http://thedepressionsessions.com/ The speakers talk about how antidepressant medications (RX) work, their side effects and what may have caused it in the first place.

I vas switched from Viibryd to Wellbutrin in one day. Viibryd became so expensive $205 a month. No Insurance! Wellbutrin is $30. I went thru the worst withdrawal for 3 days. How important is a Dr. Of Phyciatry when dealing with these Meds?

Comment:
Took 150mgXL for about three weeks then went to 300mgXL, have been on it for about a week and to me it really feels like a very low dose of a stimulant like ritalin or something similar. Makes me feel numb and just baseline all day. No ups or downs really. I don't like it so far.
