  1. I took wellbutrin for the sole purpose of helping me to quit smoking. I had a good job and a great girlfriend and felt the time was right to use my health insurance to go to a doctor and get a medication to help me quit the habit. I had always told myself if I was ever in a great relationship, I would quit, so as to be healthy for those who may count on me. Obviously, Carrie was the person that I felt deserved my health and well being, someone I always wanted to be around and be around for a long time. So I got the medication and started taking it. Within a month we were broken up: I have never been arrested or even been issued so much as a speeding ticket, and would never ever hurt a fly, but after smashing several possessions (I would never ever touch her obviously) in a fit of rage, I was arrested, and rightly so, for domestic violence. Two weeks later, I found out Carrie had already started dating someone barely 21 years old (she is 32) who had no job, no car, no money but did have an arrest warrant out for him. This news shocked me and I instantly and impulsively took bought an entire bottle of sleeping pills and a mountain dew and then used the soda to swallow all the pills. Evidently, I became very delirious, called Carrie, called her band manager and called my boss to tell her I wouldn't be coming in the next day (I have no recollection of any of this whatsoever). Three days later I woke up from a coma apparantly caused by both the sleeping pills and a massive siezure. I am wondering if anyone has taken an anti depresant for non depression reasons and had a relationship ruined because of it? I was on Wellbutrin, and though I read the warnings of "hostility and suicidal thoughts" I didn't think I was actually going through those when they were happening. It was all so unreal. It's been well over a year, and I'm trying to put it all together (I've been off all depression medication since and have also quit smoking the natural cold turkey way). I'm trying to see why I acted this way--like I say, it was unreal, I still can't believe it actually happened. Has anyone else lost a loved one, a job, a life because of non depression related anti depresants? I know the warnings are there, but was what I went through severe or is it more common?
