  • Perceived effectiveness for Depressed mood: Slight
  • Side Effects: Mild
  • Adherence: Always
  • Burden: Not at all
Dosage: 150 mg Daily
Advice & Tips: When I first began treatment with Wellbutrin the side effects were anxiety and paranoia. After a few weeks the side effects went away. I began to feel better. I could not take this 10 years ago. It wigged me out completely. Now, I am able to take it without the past side effects. I guess its okay to try a medication more than once. I dont know what effect it is having on depression, but i do know it is a little easier to get out of bed in the morning.
Cost: < $25 monthly
Side effects: Shakiness, Panic attacks

  • Perceived effectiveness for Depressed mood: Moderate
  • Side Effects: None
  • Adherence: Always
  • Burden: Not at all
Dosage: 150 mg Daily
Advice & Tips: Helps my depression and since it is equivalent to Zyban (stop smoking medication) it helps me cut down on my smoking. I quit smoking for six weeks using Wellbutrin and nicotine patches. I started smoking again because I stopped using both and a major event happened in my life. Am back on this medication which will help me two-fold. I already have my new quit date for not smoking.
Cost: < $25 monthly
Side effects: Shakiness, Panic attacks
