    I know almost every medicine has side effects goning on them, but how long should I wait tell I call the doctor and tell him they havent worn off? Ive only been taking it about 3days now

    Are you talking about the side effects of PAxil or Wellbutrin?
    PLEASE, call your doctor and ask him these questions. Do you REALLY want to trust somebody who posts on the internet not knowing anything about them?

    Wellbutrin, mainly headaches, and sometimes getting real jittery

    What about my other question?
    Why aren't you calling and asking your doctor?
    They WON'T get annoyed with you calling (and if they do, find another doctor).
    I am truly concerned about you (even though I don't know you). Taking so many OTC pills along with prescriptions can be a deadly combination. It would be *MY*GUESS* (note I'm far frombeing a doctor) that your 'reaction' to wellbutrin is really the reaction of the OTC and wellbutrin combined.

    I stopped taking most of my OTC ones, only multivitamin, and fish oil. Because one did mess me up really bad, made my blood pressure like 150/110 and my heart rate like 120:eek4:

    that's what I thought.
    and again, why aren't you calling your doctor? You care enough about your health to post here,but not to make a simple phone call and talk to a nurse?

    wrong. Almost EVERY doctor will have an oncall answering service at the very least! If you'd like, I could even give you a 1-800 number to a 'nursedirect' line in our area. It's free.

    I think I'll give it another day, for the jittery, and the headaches are most likely from the caffinie

    You may want to back off on the dose, which is something you can call and ask him Monday. And dude... don't take any caffiene if you are feeling jittery.

    Most side effects will fade in time anyway, but if you're not comfortable Monday, call in. And no caffiene, ephedra, ginseng, etc.

    :madfawk: I figured out why I would be perfectly fine after I took the medicine and than at night and in the morining feel like shit, they gave me Wellburtrion SR but they were suppose to give me XL. SR is suppose to be twice a day, and XL once a day which is what I am doing now

    I had to take Welbutrin in the morning, or I would not sleep.

    But they have an SR and XL, most people take XL because of that very reason, SR last about 8hrs before wearing off.

    Although I have to admit I feel fucking great right now :bigthumb:
