Switched from Effexor XR to Wellbutrin approx. 1 month ago - - the transition was a bit scary (no weaning instructions from my doctor), those electrical zaps experienced from most "detoxees" of Eff XR, nausea, dizziness, etc., but WELL WORTH the WAIT. I am so glad to be on WELLBUTRIN, instead - - I finally have my life back, after sleeping constantly for years - - Eff XR just made me "numb" (from the waist down, too! - - my poor, patient husband... ) - - I have years of housekeeping neglect & loss of hobby interest to counteract - - thank God WELLBUTRIN has brought back my energy & enthusiasm !
Finally - - my question: My night (& often day) sweats are a real nuisance - - Eff XR must have masked them. Is there a way to combat excessive hot flashes/sweats while on this medication?
