> Thank you sooooo much for responding. I feel so isolated today. Your post helped me see that my reactions are "normal" for depressed people. I keep thinking that I have to do it all. I'm one

I used to be like that...then I figured out that if I give myself a little slack here and there it's a LOT easier to get through the days. Making small concessions keeps you from having to make big ones. :)

>of those over-achievers lately. Perhaps I'm slightly manic at the moment. The doc was screening me for Bi-Polar Disorder since it runs in the family. Maybe I'll talk to him about it....

*shrug* That's what wellbutrin is like when you first go on it. I don't know if your doctor could tell the difference any better than you can, since you're on sorta mixed-meds right now.

> Maybe this is all the withdrawal. I've been reading so many things about Effexor withdrawal...and it is as bad as they say....

It can be. But you're also going directly to Wellbutrin's support, so you may not have the "rebound depression" that some people get when going off Effexor. (they get even MORE down than before Effexor, and then come back to normal)

> I hope this gets better as I cycle down to 37.5 MG EffexorXR/day and up to 150mg Wellbutrin/day on Wednesday. I see my psych doc a week from tomorrow so that we can discuss what comes next.

I see a new medical professional tomorrow myself. *crosses fingers* I'm not sure what her title is, I just know she's not a regular doctor but she can prescribe meds. Anyway, I'm hoping she's better than the last one, last one was dumb and didn't do her research. :/

Anyway, good luck with the doc. :)

> All this so that I can maintain an erection....One wonders whether this is worth it...(Seriously!)

*laugh* Well, if you respond to Wellbutrin without bad side-effects, it's really a great drug. And it'll BOOST your sex-drive, so if you have a partner who's been doing without...they'll be thrilled. ;)
