  • Effectiveness
    Slight (for fatigue)
  • Side effects
    None
  • Adherence
    Always
  • Burden
    Not at all hard to take
Dosage: 200 mg Daily
Advice & Tips: I took the Bupropion until about January of 2015 and then I decided I had had just about enough of a bunch of meds that didn't work so I stopped taking them. Things went south in May 2015 when my Mother-In-Law died unexpectedly and so in April I started back on the Bupropion but my doctor also has me taking Provigil for my fatigue and I am doing a lot better now. I still don't know if the Bupropion is helping me or not. I am still tired a lost. Fatigued body and mind. (Sigh) Even with taking 200mg of Provigil a day. I guess I need more sleep but I don't think that will help any. Even when I get hours and hours of sleep the fatigue is still there. I take the bupropion in the mornings.
Cost: < $25 monthly

Advice & Tips: I am very tired all of the time so my psychiatrist has prescribed this medication to see if it gives me any pep. I have been taking it for months now with no change in my exhaustion. As of Feb. 2013 I have been taking 300mg in the morning and 200mg in the afternoon. I forget to take the 200mg in the afternoon a lot of the time.

Advice & Tips: I started Wellbutrin in 1989, before there was a generic. It worked very well for me until a couple of years ago, when I became convinced it was doing less for my depression, and more to make me anxious. My healthcare provider agreed that was a reasonable assessment. When I started Latuda, and it was a success, we decided to titrate off the Buproprion. I have not had difficulty since I quit it, although my anxiety level is still a little high.

Advice & Tips: 2014 November 25 two weeks before my jaw surgery my Pdoc said I could lower from 450 to 300xl. Once I have healed from my surgery a total review of my depression and treatment. Reason for lowering is due to my worry of interactions. My Pdoc days everything interacts as a general rule. She is not concerned about my meds and post surgery medications. Day 2 of 300mg. No change.
