Wellbutrin and The Side Effects

I have been on Wellbutrin for awhile now, and I was supposed to be taking 150mg twice a day, I often forgot to take the second one, so when I went to the doctor I asked to be put on one that last all day, so I don’t have to remember to take it. I am now taking a 300mg XL, and now that I am getting my full dose I am starting to notice the side effects I read about when they put me on it… Some of the things are good but the others are not so good.

I have a hard time sleeping, I am up all night, and when I go to sleep I sleep maybe 5 hours. I am more focused now, I can actually do more than one thing at a time, and I have been being able to knock out some reviews/giveaways. It is all some what coming natural to me, instead of struggling to find the words I am trying to say.

It seems I get more done in a day, which is awesome. Another side effect can be weight loss, I am not sure if it is helping in that department, my anxiety has been acting up, and well I haven’t stepped on the scale in awhile. OOPS I know, but hey at least I am being honest. I am not pigging out on junk. Matter of fact, my appetite has slowed down a lot as well, and I am sticking to my water, and whole grains.

Other than not sleeping like I should all seems to be fine. I would like to sleep a bit better though, staying up until 6:30am sucks!

What is your experience with Wellbutrin?

    I’ve never had Wellbutrin before. However, I’m allergic to a TON of medications, so many that I typed up a list just to hand over to each doctor instead of having to say each one. Must easier that way and they appreciate it!
