Well, the weirdness continues. The severe sedation wore off around 7:00pm but I was still fairly tired. I took my remeron around 10:00pm and was in bed by 11:00pm. . .and I couldn't sleep. WTF!!! Remeron pretty much knocks me out cold until the next morning--no memories of anything!! I wasn't agitated or even mind racing. I just couldn't sleep. I felt really tired, mind you.

My pdoc returned my phone call this morning and said he has never heard of anyone being tired on Wellbutrin (ie I don't really believe you). But, he told me to try taking it night for the rest of the week. Since I didn't sleep last night, I'm not sure how that is going to work!!

The only other major paradoxical effect I have had was with klonopin: it made me WIRED. But in general I am pretty drug sensitive. I have the side effect gene: I get sick going on and coming off these drugs to an often severe extent!

I think maybe I just should have muddled through on a partial response the rest of the summer. But then I have severe seasonal affective disorder and doing med changes in the winter will, I assume, be even less fun. This is the only time of year I can feel really good and I'm still playing russian roulette with meds. Crap.
