> I'm so glad that the Wellbutrin is working for you. Sound like you just need a little time and possibly some tweaking to reach a comfortable "zone". I wouldn't get too overfocused on the side-effects unless they are excruciating.

if only i weren't so darn cold. it literally hurts. i've just switched over to the immediate response wellbutrin from the sustained release so that i could drop to the 75mg tabs.

i'm just burning this stuff up fast, even with the SR i was. one of the 75mg tabs lasts me four hours before the irritability sets in. i take the next one and it's night and day the difference. it really helps, but by the end of the day my body temperature is barely 97degrees and usually lower than that. i'm going to have to get off this (SIGH) if it doesn't stop.

>My experience on anti-depressants is that if I litterally can't stand the side effects after 1 week then I probably should dump it. But, if the side effects are just marginally annoying (i.e. not as bad as being depressed), then they usually wear off after a few weeks.

yep, that's what i think to. when it gets to the point when the sideeffects are unbearable, then that's when it's time to switch.

got that one covered too.

yes, this is good stuff. it knocks me out too much, so i don't use it. but for other people it is very mellowing and sleep inducing.

if only there weren't all that controversy and the, well, you probably know. in theory it sounds so good. i'm the type of person who gets the 1-in-100,000 sideeffects. it's totally annoying (not like i want it to be that way!), so i just stay clear of that.

good old chamomile tea, strong, i find helpful. also not doing anything to get all worked up right before bed, yet making sure to expend a lot of energy during the day so that i'm tired enough to go to sleep. those are other non-med. aids that are good. and i don't do caffeine anymore. etc.

i'm soooo cold.... (grrr)
