Your Experience

Recommended Posts

Just looked through all the posts through the search feature and would like to hear anyone's thoughts on this drug that might help me out. Like how anxious/activating was your start-up etc. I don't want to experience what I did with Fluoxetine/Prozac that made my fascicualtions worse and my anxiety skyrocket. I had a not so good pdoc at the time though and I believe he started me on too high of a dose of Fluoxetine (30mg).

I am loving Remeron (I'm 2 weeks in now) for sleep which is improving my depression, although when ever I'm not busy doing something during the day I get super drowsy and can barely stay awake. I felt this way before the Remeron as well.

I've also been looking at some other stimulants like Adderall XR and Ritalin. Gawd I must sound like a junkie in this post.

Almost have all the pieces to the puzzle of my issues sorted out, then I can get on with a normal life again and slowly taper off the meds.

Thanks for reading smile.png

I had no anxiety issues before beginning bupropion, and detected no change in that after starting.

Many posts have been made in this subforum by people with pre-existing anxiety finding their issues exacerbated by bupropion.

Really, you won't know unless you try it. However, an increase in your anxiety would not be unheard of.

Re: adderall, I'm no doctor, but prescribing it just for energy and wakefulness might be inappropriate given it's potency and potential for abuse. It was prescribed to me off-label for depression, but it did not energize me or wake me up. It just made my thoughts busier.
