  • Adherence: Usually
  • Burden: Not at all
Dosage: 150 mg Daily
Advice & Tips: I think that I'm one of the rare few for whom Bupropion causes hair loss and therefore given my vanity, it is not worth it. On the positive side of things, this drugs efficacy is amazing! It allows me to have my full range of my usual sex drive (which was never very hight to begin with) as well as be more in touch with my emotions without feeling out of control.
Cost: < $25 monthly
Side effects: Hair loss

  • Perceived effectiveness for Major Depressive Disorder: Moderate
  • Side Effects: Mild
  • Adherence: Always
  • Burden: Not at all
Advice & Tips: It took several months for me to see a long term change in my depression and thoughts about death. I tried adding another medication for anxiety that I had in the initial phases, but it made me feel too sleepy. Knowing the anxiety stemmed from the meds helped me understand why I was getting anxious so it did not go out of control and eventually this side effect has subsided.
Cost: < $25 monthly
Side effects: Tinnitus during day, Stomach pain
