Wellbutrin and insomnia/panic attack

Posted by Jim on March 3, 2000, at 10:33:53

I was on Wellbutrin (150 mg/day) for about 8 months last year. It worked fine, but I discontinued it without any trouble. After a 7 month layoff, I started back on it last week at 300 mg/day without starting out at a lower dose as recommended. Now, 6 days after being back on it, I have experienced a couple nights of pretty bad insomnia with one moderate panic attack. I have only had one panic attack in my life and it was a couple of years ago in a moment of severe stress. This one was simply because I couldn't sleep. I want to believe that my error in not starting out at a lower dose, as recommended, caused this anxiety and panic, and not that I am developing a panic disorder. I have discontinued Wellbutrin as a result. Has anyone experienced this or has anyone's physician commented on this? Please help.
