I am new to this site and very excited about talking to others :) Long story short, I have been dealing with depression for years. I recently moved to another city. Before that I have been on various mood stabilizers and other antidepressants in the past. When I moved to my new place I saw a doc and it's been a bad experience, as I am finding a new doc. First off I had to see the PA first which never made sense, but I spent 3 weeks being put on all sorts of mood stabilizers and antipsychotics. Mood stabilizers put about 20 pounds on me and make me feel worse. When I explained that she finally agreed to put me on Wellbutrin (still hadn't seen the doctor) and Phentermine for weight loss. I should have known to NEVER put those two together as not only do the side effects triple, but there is a major drug interaction between the two as they can cause seizures! She never even told me that. This past week I have been extremely depressed (I know you start out with Wellbutrin that can happen for weeks until drug takes full effect), but I was very angry on both those meds, I'm sure from the stimulant effect.
Anyway I feel better and am hoping the Wellbutrin is the answer for me. :) I look forward to talking to everyone!
