Well, that makes sense, to a degree. I am concerned that according to the PI, water retention, consitpation, etc, were much more prevalent than placebo. And I assume these side effects were not merely ones that disappeared after treatment initiation.

During my brief exposure, I did indeed experience terrible water retention, urinary hestiancy, and constipation-like symtoms. If those go away after 3-4 weeks, I would be impressed. And I hope you report back, saying they do go away!

Meanwhile, I'm just not up for a month of that, with no promise that they will indeed disappear. Or the fear that it would decrease my desire to do rigourous daily cardio exercise, which I am currently doing.

I was pleased with the results -- alertness, etc -- but I would not be able to tolerate the AEs for long. And I do worry about the potential sexual AEs, as the PI indicates. At least Wellbutrin improves sexual function, rather than dampening it.

I do hope you consistently report good news and prove me wrong! I look forward to daily reports. :)
