I was switched from Celexa to Bupropion SR 150 twice daily on December 2nd. On Celexa I couldn't control my weight gain but it worked really well for my depression. I've been at a full dose for one week now and I'm having trouble managing food intake and feeling well. The first week on a half dose I had tons of energy and felt really good. Now I don't have much interest in eating my stomach is growling and I get a headache, nauseous, and sometimes feel faint, and sometimes I can't focus my vision very well on things like a computer screen. I feel like I'm in a constant battle now with food. Could the med be causing my blood sugar to drop to low and thats why I don't feel well? I'm thinking of asking the doctor if I can try a half dose of this with a half dose of my old med, maybe I can have the best of both worlds?
No, if your blood sugar was low you would be hungry. I haven't noticed a difference in my appetite. drat. Have you tried something like a milk shake if you're not wanting food? That first week thing is just that. It would have stopped even if you stayed on the same dose. You know you have to eat, don't let yourself get sick.
I am not in the medical field. I was put on buproprion 300XL. Started having head aches and felt as u said. Then it was upted to. 450Xl I got worse but tried to push through thinking that the side effects would get better. I ended up in the hospital for 5 days. My blood sugar could not be controlled. I now am hypoglycemic and have to test my sugar 3x daily.
