Spinning, YES! Made me very impuslisive & irritable. "Aggitated" (SP?) was the word my pdoc used. I actually had to be hospitalized for a week because I was having suicidal impulses that really scared me. I have Major Depression in addition to ADD but I was never the suicidal type...

After 3-4 days back on the Ritalin SR (20 mg 2X/day) I feel great. So I guess the Wellbutrin "poop out" was all that needed to be addressed. He replaced my Wellbutrin SR (300 mg/day)& Prozac (20mg/day) with Lexapro at just 20 mg/day & I feel great. I am also adding Topamax for migraines & it also seems to be helping with mood. I'm currently at 75 mg/day titrating up to 100.

Good luck to all...
