> I've been taking Wellbutrin SR for just over 2 weeks now 2x150mg per day. It made me feel normal right away (no spacey feeling) and I eat and sleep fine on it which makes me think it is right for me.

Probably true!
I'm that way on the immediate-release...I eat normal and sleep normal and feel NORMAL! ;)

> I'm hoping that it will give me some of the sex drive which vanished completely when I was about 17 (29 now).

Wait, are you saying it vanished due to mental illness, or just no reason at all?
I don't think it will give you a sex drive if you don't naturally have one, but if you've got no urge for sex cuz you're DEPRESSED, it'll help a lot.

> Anyone have a similar experience & how long does it take? If I get none of the spacey feeling does that suggest I am tolerant & should consider upping the dose after 4-5 weeks if nothing kicks in.

NO! The trick is to find the amount that helps you WITHOUT making side-effects. Give it a healthy chance, Wb usually kicks in faster than SSRIs and other stuff... THEN try upping. But I really wouldn't try that too fast, you'll end up feeling crummy, jittery, anxious, irritable, and possible nasty headaches. Anyway, upping past 300 isn't usually too practical, usually many bad side-effects. You won't find many people who take more than 300.

> Also anyone have any experience of combining WB with Bromocriptine (parlodel). I know that WB is supposed to be a dopamine reuptake inhibitor and that Bromocriptine is a dopamine agonist but will they clash?

*blink* Never heard of it.

> BTW Wellbutrin is only licensed as Zyban in the UK - the only medication to help me & I'll have to buy it over the Net.

You can't BUY it as Zyban?
Or ask your doc to prescribe it...?
It's the same med.
