Welbutrin

Welbutrin

I asked my ID for a recommendation on a smoking cessation and she suggested that i ask my PC for Wellbutrin. She said this was her “favorite” because its a stimulant that helps with depression/anxiety as well as a smoking cessation. I was wondering if anyone out there has ever taken this and what your experience was with it. Thankssss. Much loveeeee 🤪🤪

Yes. Im taking it now. It really does help with the mood swings. But sometimes the cravings are intense. That hasn't changed even after taking it six weeks. When she had me start taking it twice a day i did notice some depression n sadness for no reason happening. Hope that helps. Oh, i did get ths dry mouth at night, n insomnia bad. They had to prescribe trazodone to go with it so i could sleep. It tskes two 50mg to overcome the insomnia

I had a friend who smoked his whole life 30 plus years. And he used Welbutrin and he had great success.

I have taken welbutrin. Off and on for 10 years (off due to insurance lapse) and I have done pretty well with my moods. I have anxiety and depression. The Welbutrin works well to ease your mind and stabilize those constant excessive thoughts. I hope this helps!
