Wellbutrin (Bupropion) Users...

I had been dealing with an overwhelming urge to eat for over a month. It seemed like there was nothing to look forward to except for eating. Ten days ago I started on 300mg of XL I still had from a Rx from last year. On the fifth day I noticed that the urge was gone and my outlook was positive. Since then I've been eating like 1000 calories per day and I feel great.

When I had taken it in the past, I hadn't been dealing with eating issues and my depression was sort of different, and I didn't feel I was getting any benefit from it. But this time around the effects are profound.

Thank you, keep me updated! How is your appetite?
My appetite seems exactly the same. Even before starting the med, I was on a mini diet since beginning of summer so I switched to light lunches (greek yogurt, low fat cottage cheese, etc) and normal dinners. That allowed me to go from 215 lbs to 205.

I've been on Wellbutrin for about two months. On TRT I eventually started feeling very unmotivated like my dopamine system wasn't working right. It was so hard to get going and completing tasks. Just over the past two weeks or so I feel like the wellbutrin kicked in. I'm motivated. I'm personable. And I actually feeling happier. The stuff actually works. Pretty amazing.

Still working on that libido bit it's gotten ever so slightly better

What dose u on? I just went to 300mg XR after 1 month at 150mg. Felt really no different on 150 so wondering how 300mg works for me

How well are you sleeping now while on Wellbutrin?

Some days I sleep fine because I get so much done. My productivity really has increased immensely. Basic stuff like picking my clothes up off the floor was a struggle but now I am doing that without thought and I am seriously getting ahead in life. SO I can wear myself out. If I feel like I am going to have trouble sleeping, I will take a sliver of mirtazapine, around 4mg. That stuff is so freaking strong it knocks me out and since its such a small amount I feel great the next day. In all fairness, I have struggled with sleep my entire life, even as a kid.

1 month on 150mg XL + 1 week on 300mg XL and I feel zero difference. Crazy. But I am not a typical case hormonally so not sure if that has anything to do with it or not. We’ll see I guess

That's how I was too but it seemed like one day about a month and a half into 400mg all of a sudden I realized I was so productive. It's pretty significant.
