Jamison Posted October 15, 2006 Share Posted October 15, 2006 Hullo! I am currently taking Wellbutrin XL 300mg 1x a day. It has been effective in relieving a good portion of my depression, but I still think I can improve more. I was previously at a 1,2 (maybe 3 at the most) and now I am at a 6 (sometimes 7, maybe 7.5). I am grateful that I can get out of bed again, but I don't feel "good" just better then I was before. I plan on staying on my the Wellbutrin XL by itself for a little while longer before talking to my doctor about something else. My doctor generally takes my research into consideration, and I would never take any medication without researching it before hand. So I want some suggestions, please. Should I ask her to raise the Wellbutrin XL to 450mg a day? My symptoms are mainly just sever depression, and some anxiety. The Wellbutrin hasn't made my anxiety any worse but it certainly hasn't made it any better. It is completely neutral in that area for me. I don't get manic, hypomanic, psychotic, delusional, or anything. I'm just depressed, all the time. I find SSRI's to pretty much in effective. I don't know why SSRIs never worked but Cymbalta and Effexor worked great, go figure. I really want to stay away from anything that works on serotonin or anticonvulsants, but I am pretty open to other things. I'd try an antipsychotic but wouldn't they just counteract the benefits of the Wellbutrin? Help, please. Seriously, I need it. Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
