... ringing in my ears, I don't think that I feelany different emotionally, BUT I am no longer on my asthma inhalers! I was using them twice a day and still having breathing difficulties but now I am breathing freely without inhalers YAY! I am still hopeful that I will wake up happy and have a zeal for the day like I used to but not yet. If it doesn't help me with the depression, this asthma relief is great. :)
The asthma inhalers make you feel as if you have overdosed on coffee. I discovered most asthma meds would give me the rollercoaster effect of highs and lows. Inmy experience, simply taking your antidepressant in the morning, if okayed by your doc. or pharm will increase your mood elevation. A sad but true side effect of antidepressants: one frequent side effect results in sleep disruption.
I have the feeling that you have multiple drugs besides puffers and wellbutrin. This makes me uneasy to give you any specific advice. I would not discontinue any doc prescribed med w/o discussing with doc.
Hello. I have been taking Wellbutrin for depression for 2 years now and I like it but it doesn't like me if I continually take it as prescribed. My ears ring so loud after 3 days that I swear people can hear it from 17 feet away!! Very debilitating. So I talked to doc and told him that I can only take Wbrn about every 3 days and he said fine so that is what I do. The ringing ceases 90% and I still feel well. An added benefit that I had was wbrn slowed my cigarette cravings. I smoke about 10 a day and I like that. No, I do not wish to quit right now(see my posts). Do not change your intake until you talk to your doctor however. This works for me but may have adverse affects for someone else. Good luck and thanks to whomever makes Wellbutrin.
It takes a couple of weeks for the side effects to subside. If for some reason they do not, discuss the dosage with the doc. It can take upwards of a month of this medication to feel the full effects. Be patient and glad you are receiving some asthma relief in the meantime.
