it took me a week to find it, but i found it (i don't know where now because i've searched and searched!) but something like "cutaneous hypothermia"... anyway, it described it as lowering of body temperature below normal body temp. range- defined as 97.6 to 98.6 degrees. 1% side effect. there it was. a side effect of wellbutrin. i am NOT crazy! *s*

i liked it the best as well, but i could only take it all at once at bedtime because it made me feel grogged during the day.

i am so incredibly productive on this stuff!! thankfully, the agitation subsided after 4 weeks. it was pretty tough going at first; talk about shakey!

> I don't remember why you dumped Serzone

i couldn't get high enough. everytime i'd try i'd swell up and it was really painful. i could get to 300mg but if i moved up to 350 or 400 i'd swell and the lightning flashes (that's a "serzone" sideeffect) were pretty intense... the other reason why i took it at night so i could theoretically sleep through the side-effects. it worked for a few months until i needed to up it and i couldn't. so we started over.

that's what i am thinking as well. the whole reason why i'm trying to get a longer term med to work is so that i don't have to take the ambien and ativan. i've actually started to sleep better with the wellbutrin (why i do not understand!... ha!... i think it's because i spend the day revved-up and highly functioning and by the time it's time to go to bed my physical body is wiped out while my brain is having a great time! *s*)

thanks again for your helpful comments.


p.s. any thoughts on the eye-strain? know anyway to combat that one?
