Only drug that has chased away my suicidal ideations

#1 Post by micorly » Tue Jul 11, 2017 3:57 pm

I've been on this medication for 10 months taking 150mg 2 times daily. I've had a lot of side effects after starting this medication. I lost 15lbs within 2 months, restlessness, insomnia, numbness, lack of thirst, violent thoughts, and other less ones. But, this is the only medication which has chased away my suicidal ideations. The only thing is if I take my dose after 8pm, I'll have a hard time sleeping so I've had to be careful by keeping an eye on the timing. I think the medication is still trying to adjust because some side effects have disappeared while others like anger spikes have started to appear after 10 months of taking Wellbutrin XL. I get annoyed very easily nowadays so am trying to work at that. I've also started to have more social anxiety, but with this it's a hit or miss because some days I'm fine. Here's the thing,

The main reason I started taking this medication was for the depression and then suicidal thoughts I was having. Wellbutrin XL has helped me control these thoughts so far. I would say it's helped me and I'm hoping going forward more of the side effects will level out and disappear.
