I was on Zoloft for about three years for anxiety and was switched over to Wellbutrin last week. There is a huge difference. Besides the very vivid dreams, I am feeling very lethargic and fuzzy headed most of the time. In addition, today I have started hearing "whispering" in my left ear which is very distracting and disturbing. I'm thinking either my dosage is too high (150 mg twice a day) or I'm having some kind of allergic reaction to the Wellbutrin. Hopefully I'm not going psycho. Any experience or advice is appreciated.
Not sure if it was clincally psychotic but it sure felt like it... when I switched from Paxil/Paroxetine to Wellbutrin/Bupropion, I had horrible mood swings like I was bipolar (but like every 5 minutes!) and even suicidal thoughts! Not that I would do it, but I really felt like I wanted to die. Friends and web research had warned me about this, so I told my family who got me through it, and I was aware of it while I was going through it... it was really weird. After about a week it evened out. Not as effective as Paxil but less side effects.
