WB must deserve the award for the most unpredictable of all the ads! my therapist, altho she, of course, can't prescribe, thinks the world of it. i, on the other hand, put it right up there, as very probably my #1 worst of all ads/ ad side-effects experience/s. i actually envy you because you have been able to endure it long enough to experience some of the cognitive goodies.

my only "drug of choice" was cocaine, used to self-medicate my major depression, (i can't understand how anyone is ever attracted to alcohol). so, knowing this, i was so sure WB would be "my" ad. a friend with similar history/ dx does great on it.

what i dont' hear often AT ALL (quite miraculous to me!) is mention of WB's gi side-effects. for me, just the worst: every time (of 3) i've convinced myself to give WB - IR or SR - another try, from the very 1st pill, i get extreme "urping" (eructation) that very literally never subsides. also, like you & so many others, i get the extreme anxiety, and hostility/ anger; my mood becomes so scary that WB is, to date, the only ad any pdoc has ever had me stop, as an emergency situation.

i even know several who don't have an "official" psych dx, (altho they are quite probably depressives just doing the "work cure") who have tried WB to quit smoking "only"; they have all gone into such states of extreme anxiety, to the point of paranoia/ thinking they are "losing their minds." a real shame.

i sure hope you finally make it, but, you may well have to accept, as mentioned, that WB is simply be. i have...finally!
