By a few weeks to adjust I don't mean a few miserable weeks. If the drug makes you sick for 3 weeks, you probably shouldn't be on it. I remember feeling occasionally light headed and maybe a little jittery for a couple of days not only when I first started taking it but also each time I increased the dose. This is one good reason, in my book, to start slow as you are. I think I also had a few GI symptoms, so they may be nerves or they may be the drug.

I know it's easier said than done, but breathe deeply and try not to project too far ahead.

I've been through tons of drug trials, mostly unseccessful because either they didn't work or I couldn't tolerate them. Wellbutrin is sort of the foundation for me and I periodically try to find something to boost it. I started a new added drug about 3 weeks ago because I was in such bad shape. Low and behold, it hasn't made me feel sick and after about 2 weeks I realized that I was starting to feel a little better.

Maybe you'll get lucky and this will be a tolerable drug that makes a difference. Just don't give up on it before you give it a chance.

Thinking of you
