    How long did your doctor tell you it would take to get into your system? It CAN take a little bit of time.
    Good luck!

    S/he told you exactly 8 days to get into your system? :squint:

    How about the other medications you are taking. Did you ever bother telling your Dr. about those?

    You know you tell me that *every*time* I ask you about them (your supplements) ;)
    Seriously though, if you're feeling suicidal you shouldn't wait until next week.
    Alright. I can't copy what I want to, so you're just going to have to read the "Important Safety Information about Wellbutrin XL" part. It's near the top

    My GF was on Wellbutrin SR and changed to the XL version, and basically went nuts.

    What EXACTLY are you on? Maybe try another version?

    Sure - it's like her brain went to 4x fast forward. She was speed walking around the house. While I was at work, she cleaned the ENTIRE house top to bottom. By the time I got home it was worse. She was talking so fast I could not understand, and then would only say one or two words. She could not focus on anything, like reading a sign on the side of the road.

    We ended up giving her like ten shots of alcohol (martinis) and 4 seroquel (knock out) and went back to SR.

    She's fine now, but that was one crazy day.

    You DO realize that you're not supposed to drink alcohol with Wellbutrin, right? ;)


    So LancerV, how's it going today? What did the Dr say?
