Hiya Mark. I thought I would put my Wellbutrin story in here for you too.

I've been on WB for about 7 mos. now. I started at 150 mgs the first 2 weeks and MAN did I feel some way wild energy...REAL fast, as in the 2nd day on the WB! However I also got real, REAL irritable too. So much so that I had to sit my children down w/my husband and explain that I was on a new medication and it was making me a bit grouchy! After the 2 weeks I went up to another 150 mgs...one in the AM and one in the PM...around 2 weeks both the extreme energy and irritability started to go away. I was calmer but more focused. I am now on the most one should take (as far as my shrink says anyway)...150 in the AM, 100 at noon and 150 in the PM....It's working well for me. Over the years i've been on just about every med. for my bi-polar, depression and BPD. Sad thing is that alot of them worked out well...for a year or so and then I had to switch to another. Meds. seem to "poop out" on me quickly.

Hope this has helped.

P.L.
