For those who have been on Wellbutrin/buproprion... please rate your experience in the following areas and what dosage level you are on ? (1) Energy (2) Motivation (feeling of getting things accomplished) (3) Weight management (weight loss or weight gain) (4) Libido (increase or decrease)?
(This question was originally posted in 2013, so I am starting a new thread to update the same question, since it has been commented on many times.)
For the past 14 months I have been on Lexapro 20mg. Completely lost my "libido" and gained weight (10lbs). I have been on various antidepressants for 35 years. This year I was doing "ok" but lost motivation and was becoming more reclusive. I asked my Dr to add Wellbutrin in April '17 since it had helped many years ago. It definately increased my motivation around the house and brought back my enjoyment of sex. I take Wellbutrin XL 150 mg every AM.
