NO, I didn't lose weight on wellbutrin. I took mostly the generic but didn't lose weight when I took the real stuff either.
I had heard once before that thyroid meds do not work well with antidepressants and have felt that myself. I have gained 50 pounds since being diagnosed with low thyroid and I have coincidentally been on antidepressants. I can't seem to lose it even if I starve myself or when I am sick and don't eat anything. I have colitis right now and even with it, I can't lose the weight. There have been times when my TSH was low and I was hyper, that I couldn't lose weight!!! I eat about 1400 calories a day and weigh 205 at 5'3". I hate it!!!!!!!!! I've felt so tired with the colitis and arthritis, all I can do is swim (when it isn't raining here in south georgia.)
Re: wellbutrin, I felt pretty good on it, even the generic. I am wanting to go back on it. I've had the worse problem with anti depressants in the past few years due to side effects. I can't take cymbalta, pexeva, lexapro. I am also in menopause and have nasty moods so I need something. I may talk to my doc about going back on hormones b/c I sweat something awful all the time.
