I have suffered from anxiety on and off for the last 8 years. I've been on Celexa in the past but has caused a lot of weight gain and cannot seem to take off the weight since I also have thyroid disease (the slowest one you can have. I normally take it for a year or so and make my dr. wean me off of it and then im OK for a couple of years and bam the anxiety returns. This time was a little different as I was very depressed, want to cry for no reason at all. I can even watch movies because I get emotional so this time my dr recommended Bupropion 150mg, She feels that my depression is the one causing the anxiety. I was on it for 4 weeks and although the anxiety had gotten a little better it is still kind of there, mild but there and I have trouble falling asleep and staying asleep. So after the 4 weeks dr upped the dose to 300 mg, Ive been on this dose for 1 week now and still feel that mild anxiety, dr says it's normal since the dose was increased. My question is, how long do I wait before I will know if this medication is working or right for me or not? Help, please. I am so tired of feeling this way.
Anxiety; Since you just had your dose increased you could be looking at 2 to 4 weeks to reach your full blood level of this medication so since you have been on it 4 weeks already then the dose increase I would think a few weeks and the anxiety should be getting better. It's never easy starting out with these new medications. Hope you reach it soon. Take care of yourself it gets better as you know. Try and have a nice day.Chuck1957
