Posted by sorta on January 24, 2006, at 15:25:09

> I am in the same situations
> im 26 and i am 6 2 and 200 lbs and its my 5th day
> I was on stratera before and im taking wellbutrin xl 300 mgs for depression...
> what i found with wellbutrin is that it was making it "OK" to be a loafer. so i asked for the something that would help me focus.
> Mind u i barely fell into depression about 2 years ago. I was overwhelemd by 4 family/business things that i saved but it took its toll on me and i was completely wasted. Although my family thinks i am now being lazy and not working to potential which is true.
> I am on concerta 54 mg and it gives me a initial buzz of nervousness and a small concentraion. (I take it with my 300 mgs of wellbutrin whic really does nothing more than make me feel not depressed) then i am nervous and I get a slight headached and my temples hurt if i dont drink enough water.
> Around 6-8 hours into it i feel much better. But before, this is also making me less social and less willing to talk on the fone.
> It helps me concentrate on things for like 10 min interims hten i can daydream or REALLY FOCUS on something on tv and sort of PLAN to do something more than i use to be able to PLAN. i dont get tunnell vision and i dont find myself focusing more.
> if i eat i am a lil less nervous but it doesnt really help.
> i find i can waste the day away... i use to be on effexor and that sort of helped me for a while but i found it too made me feel it was fine loafing and putting htings way off.
> stratera didnt work at 120 mgs
> concerta 54mgs gets me slight tunnel vision for 10minutes and helps me focus on the tv more...
> what should i do
