how long until I'm back to feeling happy and energetic like I was at the two and a half week mark. I'm currently on 450 mg once a day. I started at 150mg and my physician increased the dosage to 300mg and then 450mg each week. I was feeling very happy and energetic for a couple days after switching to 450mg but I had two beers with some friends and the day after I felt depressed again. I still feel that same feeling of depression since two days ago. When will this feeling stop?
Hi, joe! It takes approximately 10 hours for your body to metabolize 1 ounce of alcohol. Give the Wellbutrin a chance to catch up again and you should be feeling better shortly.
Alcohol (ethanol) is a potent depressant so it's really not a good idea to mix the two.
Best regards and I hope you're feeling better quickly. Wildcat
