Diasy

I think you're so incredibly brave.

I have no time now to post. I just wanted to tell you that Wellbutrin has been a great drug for me - as close as a drug comes to having no side effects. That wasn't true at first; it did take me a couple of weeks to adjust.

Wellbutrin can be activating I guess although it's long since stopped having that effect on me. You might be able to minimize sleep disturbance by taking it in the morning.

Also, and again your experience can differ, I've augmented it with small amounts of klonopin at night to help with sleep. The great thing about klonopin for me is that it has a much longer life than alot of drugs. More traditional sleeping pills were great for helping me get to sleep but did nothing to keep me asleep. Until my most recent episode, it was pretty rare that I'd wake up in the middle of the night if I took klonopin.

Lots of people frown on drugs like klonopin which can be addictive, but both my pdocs and internists have been very positive about it - telling me that I never was taking enough to worry about addiction at all.

Just some thoughts

Take care
