I just started taken this med 5 days ago. I am on 150 mg 1x a day. I told the dr that i am depressed but do not know why. He put me on this and told me that it will take about 7 days to feel a little bit better but about 3 weeks to feel good. I just really need to hear from someone that this med is a good med. Can anybody please help me and shed some light on this. I have lost my appettie which is ok with me. thanks
I wish we could predict if it will be a good med for you or not. Everyones chemistry is different. What works for one may not work for another.
In the past Wellbutrin has worked well for me. Your doc is right it may take 4-8 weeks to feel the full effect. It is a game of patience. If you can tolerate the side effects it has a good chance of working for you, but give it time. There appears to be many people on this site that are on Wellbutrin and doing well on it. Hang in there. Wishing you the best outcome.
