Hi everyone, I've lurked these forums for a while now and just want to say I appreciate the help you all provide. I'm a 23 year old male and I've been on generic wellbutrin XL 300mg since November 28th, which is 6 full weeks. I experienced several side effects such as dry eyes, extreme irritability, weight gain, and a rollercoaster ride of emotions. Now at the 6 week mark, I don't feel very energized, I'm struggling even more to get out of bed, experiencing tension headaches, increased anxiety, and my mood has become much worst. I feel entirely hopeless and desolate. I've never had anything good come from antidepressants, they have only made things MUCH worst in the past so I am feeling disheartened as I've heard good things about wellbutrin. I see my psychiatrist at the end of the month, but I don't know if I should keep taking the wellbutrin for another 1-2 weeks or call him and ask to stop. I was hoping some of you may have some insight into side effects at the 6 week mark, it seems that many people do not get benefits from wellbutrin as quick as other anti-depressants.
