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.
