Hi everyone!! I guess I'm the newbie!
I have some serious issues going on and need some advice.
I have been seperated from my husband for several months now. We were married for 5 years and have a beautiful child together, but over the last few years we've gradually grown further apart (as I know many couples do). Several months ago, he had started displaying some signs of abusive behavior, and I made the decision to leave him and take our child with me.
To thicken the plot, I've been on anti-depressants since my son was born in 2005 and for whatever reason never had gotten off of them. Just a couple of weeks ago, I weaned off of my Wellbutrin and Citalopram meds, and almost immediately I noticed that my feelings toward my husband (who I'd previously loathed) were different. Suddenly, I remember the way I used to feel about him (prior to starting the meds). I find myself now questioning how realistic/true my interpretation of his "abusive behavior" was. Furthermore, I wonder if our marriage might still be in tact if I'd never been on the medication to begin with.
In reading some of the potential side effects I read that "depersonalization, hostility, dysphoria, emotional lability, and paranoid ideation" can be present in people taking Wellbutrin. I feel like each of these terms describes my behavior over the last couple of years...just wondered if anyone else had a similar experience??? If so, PLEASE write.
