  1. This is a very long introduction... Actually it is more of a complete psychiatric medical history and I don't expect anyone to actually read it all. I just want to document my experience and maybe it will be helpful for someone or help raise awareness. Basically, I have been following mainstream medicine's advice for the past 11 years and now my brain is 'addicted' to Wellbutrin XL. I have tried to get off multiple times but have not been successful yet. You may just want to skip to the tldr paragraph at the bottom... In 2002 (age 17) I was a junior in high school and I was depressed.

    I began taking meds in the Spring of 2008 at the age of 20. I was suicidal, probably because I was abusing pills and alcohol. I was officially diagnosed with "mood disorder, not otherwise specified" and had to deal with social anxiety issues as well. I continued regular and escalating substance abuse until August 2009, when I tried to kill myself and really seriously almost died. When I woke up in the hospital, I had an epiphane--I knew I was being given a second chance by God and that I had more to accomplish before I left this life. Fast-forward to Spring 2013...I finally have a job
  3. Hi, I'm new and mystified by the site. I have been on Wellbutrin for 6 yrs since the breakup of a long term marriage which became abusive. Initially I was on 300 mg, then 150, now 75 mg Bupropion HCL. Is this time release and can I cut it? I usually take it 6 days a week, I was planning to decrease the number of days a week, but after reading some of your advice, should I be doing it differently? Once I dropped to 5 days/week and got an excess of self-critical, awful thoughts so if I can avoid that, obviously that would be preferable.
