In reply to How long before my Wellbutrin starts working?, posted by holymama on May 6, 2004, at 18:50:26
Give it about 3 more weeks, to really feel the effects have it moved to 450mg Daily, you will start to feel the stimulating anit-depressant effect moderatly.
I started with just 150mg daily, for about 2 weeks, nothing was felt, a little stimulation, but not anything with antidepressant properties. I got moved to 300mg Daily about 4 weeks into it, and that was about the time i started to feel the effects.
Later i was moved to the max dose of 450mg Daily, the effects are effective, more energy and increased intrest in things, and more active daily things since it is a stimulant anti-depressant. But if you have an anxiety problem, this will also stimulate the anxiety.
If you do, and chose to still take wellbutrin, level it with a mild sedative, either another sedating antidepressant, or a benzodizepine such as Klonoplin, that works the best. Hope you feel better soon.
