Advice & Tips: I have noticed lately that I have been swaying from one leg to the other when standing. I seem to have boundless energy. I must also note that I have been stepping up my gym routine. I also am on Atkins. So, My weight loss is not from depression. But, right now I adore this medication. I am elated in every sense of the word. And I started it July 5th. I have another prescription to pick up but I have some left over from the previously discontinued round of therapy. Anyone else experiencing the swaying? It seems like I just always want to run. I weigh over 200 pounds. This is strange to me. Hopefully, I will not be so big for long. I welcome all comments and feedback! Thanks! Daevyn

Advice & Tips: I have 2 side effects that are wonderful with Wellbutrin XL. The first of which is it helped me to quit smoking over 3 years ago. I was taken off of this around the first of the year (2010) because my liver enzymes (ALT) were elevated. In May, I had a dream I was buying cigarettes and the next day the cravings were unbearable. I started to smoke again. I was given another persciption for Wellbutrin XL on July 5th, 2010. I am hopeful that it will help me again as it has done in the past. The second side effect is having a higher sex drive. The Celebrex had diminished it a bit even though I am on a low dose. Other than the liver tests being elevated I have absolutely no issues being on this medication.
