Well, I just had my 10th Dose of 300Mgs (Actavis Bupropion XL) So far, appetite supression has been wonderful, since starting 300mgs 5 days ago. I would have to say that my caloric intake is half of what it normally is, and I have already lost 2lbs. Now, this could just be water weight, and I'm also drawn to eating healthier food choices and my cravings for carbs and sweets seems to have been deminished. One of my biggest problems (aside from daytime sleepiness) has been over eating and craving carbs/sweets. This seems to be working well on this aspect, hopefully this is something that will stick around.
Aside from that, I can say that I still feel the meds coming on. They seem to kick in around 2 hours after taking them and come and go all day long. It doesn't matter if I take them with or without food, this is the norm. I am still taking this (Burpropion in the morning) along with Trazodone at night , for sleep (50mgs). I have not experienced the "Awake" feeling that most have talked about, yet. I have had many moments of mental clarity, but they're usually followed by brain fog, again.
I will report back in another week with how I have been doing. I find that many people over forums say they're starting these meds and never report back as to how they're doing, how long they were on the med, and if they continued or found something else that worked for them. Just a tad frustrating... ;-)
