... 4th week of the transition and it is getting more difficult. Week 1 I stepped down to 75mg, no issues. Week 2 stepped down to 37.5 and started 150mg of Welbutrin, still okay. I have stopped taking Effexor XR altogether now as of 7 days ago and just on the 150mg of Welbutrin... not doing too well. I do not want to regress to back to the Effexor XR. I hate the drug and want to leave it behind once and for all... Anybody else experience this horrible feeling? more importantly, did it pass and how long did it take to pass? Any feedback is greatly appreciated!
When you say not doing well you mean what? Physically or emotionally? Have you contacted your physician? Might be wise to do at this point. My view: you are the customer; use him/her. As you know you are dealing with the human brain & for the most part it's still a mystery. MD's are trying to modify brain chemistry & it is not easy - for them or you. For many the Welbutrin does a good job & thresholds passes but big deal if it'd not you? People react differently. Do what works for you. This? Maybe. Involve your doc.
