Wellbutrin for the long haul?

Posted by ellen on October 23, 1999, at 18:03:47


I have been on wellbutrin/bupropion for about two years
boosted to 300 mg daily awhile back. It's working. Sad/
grief/pain stops at my feet, doesn't go to the bowels of
the earth anymore. Bad days dip, not destroy.

But, as I said elsewhere, it makes me
stupid ... I lose about 20 IQ points. This is better
than the word retrieval loss from the other medications
(Prozac, zoloft, effexor, paxil...) because I write/edit
for a living.

But dammit, I miss my smarts. *grin* Yeah, "stupid" is better than
suicidal, but... I'm worried about long-term
brain damage, frankly. I have searched and searched and
cannot find any research available on the web about the
long-term effects of wellbutrin on intelligence -- or any
other antidepressant's impact on intelligence/cognitive
ability long-term.

*Sudden grin*

Hey, maybe I should write a research grant proposal...

Anybody out there know about information I've missed?
