Ive been net diagnosed as having mild depression, and was prescribed Wellbutrin SR 150 once a day (I got the generic version). It is now day 2 and I literally feel nothing. No negatives, no positives, just feel like I never took anything at all. I'm so frustrated because all I want is to feel normal. To wake up everyday with a zest for life. To have ENERGY! After reading all the reviews I was so excited about the possibilities; thought this was going to be my miracle. Am I just not allowing enough time?
Some people have a placebo effect and feel better at first. It takes 4-6 weeks for it to reach peak effect. I switched to it from a different one and the first few days I felt that kick. It doesn't stay until the pills are truly working.
Hello Crysc, Give it some more time. It can take up to 4-6 weeks to reach the full therapeutic benefit; however, you may start feeling better within 1-2 weeks. I started feeling better in about 10 days.. hang in there... pamee
I take Welbutrin and Zoloft. They work great for me. I agree with everyone else..it takes 4-6 weeks to really start working because it has to build up in your system. I see you posted this in June... how are you feeling now?
