I've been taking it for 2 weeks. At first it made me shake like a leaf. That is subsiding, but I don't really feel any positive results yet... like increased energy and motivation. The reasons why my doc added it to Prozac 20mgs. which I've been taking for 2 1/2 months now.
I was taking Wellbutrin too n it also gave me the shakes n made me a little manic. I did feel better with motivation n energy. But my body felt drained n tired while still stuck in drive,so to speak. But now I'm taking Sinequan/"Doxepin" it's working,it's not the greatest uplift but it works. It will make you drowsy n sleepy,so I take it at night about 45 minutes before bed. It really helps desperately if you need to rest & sleep. Not to be taken in the daytime until your body has adjusted to it. But all medicines r different for each of Us. What works for one might not work for another. And I'm also taking Prozac 20mgs a day. Don't give up n think positive! We all have to go through the "trial n error" time n most all of Us hate it. I know I do :) Please give Us an update to let Us know how U r doing? Wishing U well ~
It takes between 4-6 weeks to start feeling the benefits of energy and motivation with Wellbutrin and some people start feeling better after about 3 weeks. If you don't start feeling better in a few weeks let your Dr know as it may not be the right medication for you. I hope you feel better soon and you don't need to try another medication as its so frustrating doing the trial and error to find the right one. Good luck,
I've been taking Wellbutrin 300mg for a good year now- I started off at 100 and quickly jumped to 300. I felt little to no difference. For me, it does not provide me with more energy, but it does help with irritability. May consider a low dose of adderall?
