I have only taken this drug for a few days. I cannot say I am satisfied yet. The first day I took it I had nightmares all night. And for the past few days I have not been able to sleep very well. I wake up a few times a night and it is very hard to go back to sleep. I wake up very early now. I hope this gets better, it is suppose to be for my anxiety and I am praying it works.

I started this drug about 3 weeks ago. I've had every symptom on the list aside from vomitting. I thought it was alright for awhile, but it's giving me panic attacks, and I can't concentrate at work.

Comment:
My doctor put me on this medication after I complained of feeling depressed on zoloft after taking it for 2 years. I was experiencing weight gain, memory loss, fatigue, and extreme tiredness, making me a candidate for hypothyroidism. I had the tests and the doctor said he would like them to be twice as high as they were for "my condition" so he put me on wellbutrin. I really have no idea ... Show Full Comment
