I was 24 when I began taking wellbutrin. It saved my life. When the SR and XL came out, I was switched to those and continued to do well. Now that BCBS won't pay except for generic, I went on Budeprion and had to double the dosage to get the same effectiveness. I never had panic attacks before but they started and I thought they were due to birth control pills I began taking to deal with bleed ... Show Full Comment

I take both Wellbutrin/Citalopram and Buproprion so it's hard to tell about Burproprion alone, but I seem to feel OK.

I was on Wellbutrin XL 150mg twice a day doing great. Now comes the generic and I have to take 300mg once a day. I get heavy anxiety, shakes, sweats, irritable, stressed, it just sucks. I feel like crap. I asked my doctor to switch me back and the insurance company says they will not cover the Wellbutrin only the generic. This sucks! I do not feel like myself at all.
