  1. 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.
  2. 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.
  3. 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.
  4. 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?
  5. 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.
  6. 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.
  7. 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 ?
  8. 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.
  9. 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.
  10. Hey JYD. I have read for some it took 10 weeks. I had an decent libido the previous 3 days but it's down again. It could also be things in my life that are happening. I have a fair amount of work stress right now. I am still waiting for the energy of the med but I have been on Celexa years ago and it didn't do much until the 10th week I think then bam! I felt awesome. It was like someone flipped a switch. Hang in there. I don't have much side effects anymore. I don't think I"m as sleepy after taking it. It has been about 3 weeks for me now. I started August 9th. The journey to the 10 weeks is so long ...... If you can get through the first 2 weeks you should be good to go unless you are still experiencing crazy side effects that are intolerable.
  11. Well I am still doing alright on Wellbutrin. today is 2 weeks at 150mg. I have practically zero libido; no sexual drive. It would be nice to have something. Has anyone had this effect in the beginning? Does it get better ?
  12. Ok I went back on Wellbutrin, lol this time I had the tension only for a few days as I really focused on not clenching . Well I take it now and all I get is a bit sleepy about an hour afterwards. At this time it is going alright. I started this again on August 9th 2021. Let's see how I do.
  13. Hey james, not sure if you are still here but I ran into a problem again. on 10 mg Cipralex but stress and anxiety show their ugly faces. I called my doctor and she suggested Mirtazapine or abilify to stabilize my moods as I get over whelmed then crash and get down. I'm thinking about trying one or the other.
  14. My mind is often restless at night. I get agitated as well. I just can't calm my mind or turn it off. It's very frustrating
  15. Ya COVID, sucks for everyone. I am having difficulties getting motivated and don't really wan to to increase my meds. the battle continues
