User Comments about Wellbutrin
31 Oct 2012 I have been on Wb for 2 weeks. Started getting ringing ears when I went from 200mg to 300mg. Ringing is sometimes very loud and sometimes nonexistent. So far I feel the drug is doing some good but not yet convinced this is the drug for me. I will give it more time as I know it takes time to get the full affect and benefit.

07 Dec 2011 I have been on it for over a decade. It has given me a new life. Besides helping me with depression it does make me crave a healthier diet and gives me a great libido! BUT I never could tolerate the generic. The quality vasolated in generic. In many of the generic wellbutrin I would get tremors and or nausea and various other negaive side effects so be sure to purchase the brand name. I took me a while to realize what was going on but when I spoke to my pharmacology insurance company they had not hesitation of allowing me to have the brand name because they had had a number of complaints of negative side effects from the generic wellbutrin.

06 Dec 2011 I essentially became a zombie-like creature that no longer cared about living or dying or feeling anything. My personality was erased and I had to find a new one.

10 Aug 2011 Wellbutrin really helped me cope with my depression. I've had problems with my weight, and since taking Wellbutrin, my hunger has lessoned. My mood has never been better!

18 Apr 2011 Since taking Wellbutrin I have noticed a decrease in my appetite as well as my ability to stay asleep. Overall, it works a lot better than zoloft.
