> my pdoc has had a lot of experience with Wellbutrin and reports that unless a patient is willing to give it at least a 2-3 week trial, you really won't know if it will pass. In his estimation, about 2/3 of his patients who reported intial side effects of anxiety on the medication find that it is not a problem after this period passes. Personally, this echoes my own experience with the drug.
> Additionally, for every subsequent dose increase, you will most likely have a similar adjustment period [but not as long as the need for aclimatizing to the initial titration]. He recommends starting low if you are senstive -- 37.5 - 75 mg twice daily. He also believes the SR and XL version are superior to the immediate release version...I personally prefer the XL version.

When I took Wellbutrin I felt like it was difficult to breathe. I was on it for only about a week. My doctor thought it might be an allergic reation and it scared me so I got off of it. Recently I read a post about someone who said that their chest felt tight on the medication so I started thinking that maybe that's what I had experienced. If that's the case, and as you have indicated, there's a good chance that the anxiety/muscle tightness would tend to go away in 2-3 weeks, then maybe it's worth it for me to try this medication again.
