Advice & Tips: Wellbutrin got me out of a Major Depressive episode. It kicked in in about 2.5 weeks. I've been on Wellbutrin twice before and that's what I notice about it--the response is not gradual but sudden. In other words, it should be easy to tell when it's staring to work because you can "feel" it. For a few days, after the 2.5 weeks I also experienced increased energy and motivation, as well as a renewed pleasure in activities I used to enjoy. This, as in prior occasions, was short-lived. It might not make me "cheerfully happy" but I will give it credit for consistently lifting me out of major depressive states.

  • Perceived effectiveness for Depressed mood: Major
  • Side Effects: None
  • Adherence: Always
  • Burden: Not at all
Dosage: 300 mg/24 hours Daily
Advice & Tips: Medication was very good and I took it for many years. I just wanted to see if I could manage my mood and energy level without taking prescribed medication. I weaned myself off the drug by taking it every other day and then three times a week then twice a week until I stopped completely. No adverse effects. Constipation no longer a problem.
