Welbutrin

I asked my ID for a recommendation on a smoking cessation and she suggested that i ask my PC for Wellbutrin.

HIV Meds And Antidepressants

Just curious..... Do any of you take antidepressants in addition to your HIV meds? If so are there any additional side effects??

Medical marijuana is what I use to battle sadness and depression. It lightens my mood and also helps me to fall asleep so my mind does not continue spinning while trying to fall into a slumber.
