PROS: Initial increase in energy
CONS: Long term made me very depressed and unable to feel pleasure. Gave me migraines if I drank coffee. Appetite increase and weight gai.

Did not help depression at all and probably triggered mania

PROS: Treated depression immediately and effectively
CONS: Increase in resting heart rate and blood pressure

I would not be where I am today without this drug. I started this medication as an outpatient after a traumatic life event and suicide attempt. My work performance was going down the drain during the depressive episode. After starting the drug at 25 mg, my supervisor noted marked improvements in my social interactions and mood. Since then, I have titrated to 150 mg and continued this for a long time. It completely stopped my suicidal ideation. I discontinued the drug by titrating off to see how I would do. I did well for months until I was overwhelmed with stress and my suicidal ideation returned. Once re-continuing the drug, depression has lifted, suicidal ideation was once again eliminated, and occupational and social functioning improved.

PROS: MADE me quit smoking
CONS: Nausea

I was only very mildly depressed when I started taking this. I was just very tired and phlegmatic and I would have liked if it had given me some extra energy, as it had for so many others. Well, it quite didn't. I've been taking it for almost a year 150mg per day, maybe I'll talk to my doctor about doubling it...

PROS: none
CONS: too many serious side effects

I still recommend this product because most people aren't me. Where do I start? 1st week I flipped out at work on several occasions. Week 2, worked wonderfully. Week 3 audible hallucinations and also made me tone deaf in one ear. Week 4, vertigo.

PROS: In combination with Citalopram, it helped to stop my depression.
CONS: Morning pill contributed to fatigue

Turns out I'm one of the 6% of people that has the side affect, fatigue. I continue to take the evening pill, as it has no adverse effects. I quit taking the morning pill because I decided to cut back on my anti-depressants, and within days my energy levels dramatically increased – I had no idea it was the Buproprion that was causing the fatigue.

PROS: Increases libido, lifts depression
CONS: None

Wow, Wellbutin really turned my sex life into something I could of only wished for as a teenager. It lifted my depression, until I missed a few doses and when I started to take it again it sent me over the edge into a severe manic episode, but that is an individual thing that I wouldnt expect from someone with normal depression. I really liked it. It also gets you going. It's energizing.

PROS: Doesn't cause sexual side effects, not as likely to cause mood instability compared with other drugs.
CONS: Doesn't work very well alone because of a lack of serotonin action. Does little to nothing for anxiety.

Fairly good after I put something with it. Mono-therapy it's like a bad tasting m&m.

PROS: Great anti-depressant, weight loss, energy
CONS: Increased anxiety

A little bit expensive, but the only anti-depressant that really worked. The increase in anxiety hasn't been welcome, but I would rather have that than crippling depression. It's also useful as it is energising

PROS: dont know
CONS: dangerous drug can cause sever anxiety

made me afraid of things i take for granted, once its in your system can have bad side effects after quiting for 6 mos, brain software damaged took a year to fix.If your a soldier or ptsd or have cardio vascular disease I would think twice before experimenting with this medication. st johns wort is a erb that can have similar bad effect when it builds up in you system. Some people will swear by this medication, some are just used to it and it works. Take my warning how ever you like. But if you have cardio vascular disease this medicine can be fatal. Lipitor can cause dimentia, warning to the wise. change you diet and find a lover

PROS: Lifted depression, lost 50 pounds,
CONS: increases anxiety

I have taken this medication-the XL for a couple of years and so far it is controlling my depression. I lost 50 pounds the first year I took it. I did at one point change from the TEVA brand generic to the Anchen brand and had TERRIBLE dry mouth which caused mouth sores that were AWFUL. I was tested for throat cancer and after many tests it was determined that it was a side effect of that company's generic. As long as I take TEVA brand generic or the actual Wellbutrin XL I have no problem like that. So I'd suggest if you're having a odd problem maybe you could check into getting a different manufacturer's generic.

PROS: worked well for my depression, boosts energy
CONS: weight gain, increased sexual desire, some anxiety attacks

This drug works very well for me. Other drugs I tried made me high and sick, but this one works much better. It has helped my depression majorly, however lately I have noticed having more depression symptoms and anxiety attacks.. which I'm going to talk to my doctor about. It definitely boosts my energy. This medicine has made me gain quite a bit of weight though.

PROS: no effect on sexual arousal, boosts energy level, causes apathy and bad dreams, soothes fibromyalgia and social phobia
CONS: racing/pouding/irregular heartbeat, nausea, diarrhea, dry mouth, headache, abdominal cramping, anxiety/panic escallation, weight gain, insomnia

I asked for a product with less sexual side-effects and was promptly told that men tend to prefer bupropion over SSRI's for this reason. I've been on it for three weeks and during week 2 I went from 150g to 300g and couldn't function for the allergic reaction I was having. I went back to 150g and I'm still suffering physically from unpleasant symptoms. I don't like the tough it out approach so I'm considering quitting. The longer I take it the more it seems to be upping my anxiety or jacked-up feeling (like I'm on coke). I worry that it could be worse if I stay on it for a while and then stop than if I just stop now and go back to taking herbal remedies.

PROS: Energizing, Losing Weight!!!!!
CONS: Not so affective at helping my depression

I'm on Bupropion SR 150mg x2 daily. So far I've lost alot of inches on my belly. Been on it 1 month now. I don't have anything really bad to say about it. I have had no side affects that I can directly tie to this drug. So far I like it. It hasn't really affected my depression all that much, however its only been a month.

I was prescribed this for ADHD and it does absolutely nothing for me, I do smoke, but it doesn't do anything for that either. This is the worst medication.

PROS: More energy, slightly better mood, few side effects
CONS: Insomnia if I take it too late in the day

Although I wouldn't say this drug makes me happy, it has helped with most of my depression symptoms so that I can get through the day. Tried the XL and couldn't sleep, so I take plain Wellbutrin, 200 mgs., as soon as I get up in the morning and it doesn't seem to have that effect.

PROS: I experienced NO positives.
CONS: None

It was prescribed to add energy in conjunction with the Paxil I was already on. Nothing happened! Totally worthless. I would have gladly taken the increased libido or the long lasting erections.

PROS: has a leveling effect for ADHD when added to ritalin. controls depression well without sleepiness.
CONS: occasional migraines

Several other anti-depressants had created an extreme aversion to trying any other medications. It took the doctor more than a year to overcome all objections in addition to exhaustive research. Having an eating disorder made the potential of weight gain an intolerable side effect and was a major selling point. Though a list of side effects is not indicative of actual experience, it was important. This has made the difference between being a mom who cannot make decisions and get off the couch to becoming an award-winning radio personality, graduating college with honors and being able to resume hobbies.

PROS: More energy within a day or two of starting this med
CONS: I have higher levels of agitation while taking 300mg a day

Mostly a positive experience. The only anti-depressants I have taken where I don't gain weight. It makes my sex drive much higher as well, not sure if that is good or bad.

PROS: Great energy boost, increased libido, weight loss
CONS: Heart Palpitations, Insomnia, Irritibility, Recklessness

I wish there were another option for recommendation.I personally had a terrible experience, but it might work great for someone else. The energy boost is great, the weight loss can be great, and it really revved my sex drive.Anyhow, I was prescribed this when diagnosed with PTSD, which apparently is a bad idea. I struggled to get two hours of sleep each night, snapped at everyone, and didn't care that I was a raging maniac. I impulsively stopped showing up at work, not even bothering to quit. Thing was, I felt great, and wasn't been able to recognize problems until I started having trouble with my heart racing and hurting. And due to a lack of rationality, I stopped cold turkey without consulting a doctor, and suffered blowback.It's been about ten years, and I'm pretty certain the damage to my personality lasted at least eight years. I might still be altered, because now I'm an anxious person, and I remember being pretty mellow before.

PROS: It's cheap.
CONS: Everything

Wellbutrin was the first atypical antidepressant I've tried and I had a truly awful experience on it. The drug increased my depression and anxiety by about 100% and I had a lot of suicidal thoughts while taking it. It also made me extremely irritable, to the point where I was confrontational with complete strangers and almost violent. It also made me drink like a fish because I felt so miserable, thus creating a vicious cycle. I don't recommend this drug at all. It should be called Hellbutrin, not Wellbutrin.

PROS: Increased energy
CONS: persistent intestinal cramping and diarrhea

I was wondering if anyone else had these same side effects and if it went away with continued use. It seems like most people who have experienced this have discontinued using it. I've only been on it for about two and a half weeks - I went on it for AD/HD and it seems to be working otherwise. I'm reluctant to try other stimulants such as Ritalin since I have an anxiety disorder to begin with. Is it worth continuing with the Wellbutrin XL if the pain and discomfort will eventually go away? Also, would taking it on an empty stomach maybe make it better (since I have been taking it with my breakfast each morning) ?

PROS: more energy, more focused, weight loss
CONS: trembling, sweating, neck pain

I've had anxiety disorder for about 15 years, have gone through alot of different meds for many years and finally settled on Lexapro. My anxiety was finally under control but I was always lethargic and my mood was always flat so my doc recommended adding Budeprion. I immediatly noticed a boost in energy and had trouble falling asleep for the next 3 days but it finally leveled off. Soon I started noticing that my hands would tremble and that I would sweat all the time. Worst of all my sweat would smell like the pills, with my type of work, I sweat alot and ppl around me started noticing that I always smelled funny lol. So I stopped taking it. I've washed my work cloths so many times and still notice the scent of the pills. Gonna ask the doc to prescribe me the real stuff and not the generic to see if it makes a difference

PROS: Helps settle mood; can also help w/smoking cessation.
CONS:

I used to take it and it was helpful. My daughter currently takes it and it is helping her. Good product. I am VERY thankful that I don't see any side effects in my daughter. My son used to take it, but refuses meds now. (He self-medicates.)

PROS: Pulls me out of depression almost immediately. As time goes by, depression turns into happiness and joy.
CONS: I take 100 mg. 150 mg. and 300 mg. made me too nervous.

I also used Wellbutrin to stop smoking. I am still a non-smoker, and it has been years since I smoked.
