Advice & Tips: 150mg dosage is low. That was set 'to avoid problems with blood pressure' - I disagree with that and few other things, I'll have to find a new psychiatrist.

Dec 15, 2013 (Started Oct 15, 2013)

  • Effectiveness
    Slight (for Persistent depressive disorder (dysthymia))
  • Side effects
    Moderate (Tremor in hands)
  • Adherence
    Always
  • Burden
    Somewhat hard to take
Dosage: 150 mg Daily
Advice & Tips: Although the side effect burden for me was unpleasant, I would strongly encourage keeping an open mind about bupropion. For many people, its side effect profile is much less difficult than some other antidepressants. It is available as a generic (which is a cost savings), and works well for many.
Cost: $25-49 monthly
