I have also tried a couple of times to use Wellbutrin. I'd love to be able to take it because it noticibly reduces my cravings for cigarettes and decreases my appetite. HOWEVER, the first time I used it I was an emotional wreck (crying, aggressive, just felt insane). So I stopped. The second time I tried (1 1/2 years later),it made me develop an itchy rash all over my stomach and arms. So I think I may have developed an allergy from the first time or something. I don't know. I really wish I could use it because it sounds like a wonder pill as far as anti-depressants go. But I guess it's just not meant to be. If you already have trouble with anxiety (which I definitely do), then I don't think Wellbutrin is the way to go. It's mainly for depression, and can be way too stimulating for those of us who have trouble calming down as it is. I wish you the best of luck finding the right med!

> Hi, I have multiple questions regarding Wellbutrin. This is my 5th trial with the medication as I really want it to work. I am currently on Prozac and Lithium for bipolar II. Trouble is, I still have lack of motivation, anhedonia, difficulty concentrating. I though Wellbutrin might help and tried it several years ago. I was so stimulated and aggressive on the immediate release (what scared me was that I kept wanting to keep taking it though). I finally switched to 100 mgs. of the SR version and was so anxious I couldn't stand it (I was even taking oxazepam and the anxiety was still overwhelming) I was also nasty on this one as well. As most of you probably know from your own experiences, I have jumped around from so many different meds trying to find the right combo. I'm back to trying the wb again for the fifth time and , again, I feel like I could kill someone. Should I throw in the towel with this one? How long does this side effect last? Please help. Thanks.
