  1. I wish I had your sex drive. When I started taking Wellbutrin I thought I felt my sex drive increase and after continued use my sex drive just died. I am not happy about that but the med seems to be helping me otherwise. I am not sure what to do now. I am 48 perhaps that is why? BUT I had a sex drive before this med when I was only on Cipralex. I am only on 150mg of Wellbutrin as well. Anyone else's sex drive take a tumble on Wellbutrin? What did you do to fix that? I may come off of it because it is really bothering me.
  2. Thanks I may try that. Thanks for your response.
  3. Also, what did you experience on the honeymoon period ?
  4. I am still on 150mg. I don't know if I should ask my doc for an increase to 300mg yet. Today I just had a lot of tiredness and fatigue but that could have been from a bad nights sleep last night. IDK. This gets so confusing. I'm already taking 10mg of cipralex as well. Good luck with the 300mg.
  5. OK thanks for the information. I will try some things and see how it goes
  6. It's working but I no longer seem to have a libido. Anything that helps with that?
  7. Yes I am still on 150mg at 8pm. I sleep fine and feel fine now. I don't feel crazy happy but not depressed and I can focus alright as well. I am glad I waited this out as I believe it is finally helping me without the side effects that I had the first 2 weeks to a month.
  8. I am at about 9 weeks and feeling fine now. I take the 150mg of Wellbutrin at 8pm each night and sleep is ok, I don't feel any crazy stimulating effect so this is good. I take my cipralex in the morning now.
  9. So I have been taking the med at 8pm every day for about a week now ....hmmm I don't really feel as sleepy as I used to when I was taking it in the morning, and I think I have the munchies or just get hungry about 2 hours later. I'm not sure if that is the med or just me. I might try this in the morning again at some point.
  10. So this is what happens when you are not on Wellbutrin correct? And you now want to give Wellbutrin a try to see if it breaks this cycle?
  11. I too felt the energy and motivation in the beginning of taking this med then after taking it in the morning I felt like I needed to put my head on a pillow and sleep or rest. I started August 9th at 150mg xl and I am waiting for a full 10 weeks before I decide if this is good enough for me. I now take it at 8pm as it does not keep me awake but more so makes me want to just rest. So far that is 3 days and my sleep seems to be good. I still feel somewhat blah or just down and bit hopeless but I can function. I am hoping by the time the 10 weeks is up, I will feel more motivated and excited about each day.
  12. Thanks for you post. I am back this med since Aug 9, trying to make it to the 10 week mark to see how I feel. I just feel tired at this point, not sad but not happy or joyful.
  13. Hi, I have been on Wellbutrin since August 9th 150mg XL. I got past the extreme tiredness and it has got me to move some but my mood is still up and down. I am already on 10mg of cipralex so I don't think upping the Wellbutrin would be an option right now. This would make it 6 weeks today that I have been on this med. Should I expect anything more in 2 weeks or 4 more weeks? Anyone with experiences ?
  14. Update: I went to the doctor and my blood pressure was fine. She thinks I am just overly stressed and will be getting more tests done soon.
  15. Wow the similarities we have are scary. I too am an empath. The state of the world really does make me sad and trying to figure out where I fit in all this. Well I heard wellbutrin can cause higher blood pressure as well in some and today my wife says that the symptoms I had today may be a sign of that. I had a tight chest, jaw and then it shot to my back. I am getting it checked tomorrow with my doctor to be sure. Today the back of my neck is a bit tense as I think I have lingering anxiety that causes me to tense up without realizing it.
