Hello my Dr started me on wellbutrin 75mg twice daily and Klonopin as needed. I was curious if anyone else gets jittery from the Wellbutrin? I have been taking provigil for over a year now and it does that the first couples days i take it then goes away. I am wondering if the wellbutrin will be the same way? I wanted an anti depressant that would help with fatigue and feeling like I can't get anything done but i also don't want to be jittery. I guess the klonopin would help with that? How many hours apart should i take the 75mgs of wellbutrin? I don't want to be up all night but also the sheet from the pharmacy said at least six hours apart. This is my first time on an anti depressant so I am new to this. I have used klonopin for awhile for my anxiety. I am on wellbutrin now because I was already having issues with depression but just dealt with it but my Mom passed away suddenly in Sept and she was my best friend so I definitely need something now.

Hi Steph,

I am so sorry to hear about your mom. This must be really difficult for you. It takes time to grieve so be patient with yourself and good to yourself.

As for the welbutrin, yes it can make you jittery, you might need more of your anti anxiety med. But I think that this will go away in time. I did good on wellbutrin until they raised the dose, then I couldn't sleep at night. I hope that it works for you. I use to take provigil, but take adderall now. It keeps me awake during the day. It doesn't make me jittery unless I forget to eat. Some people can't handle it though because it is an amphetamine. But it really works good for fatigue. I have fibromyalgia and chronic fatigue along with depression.

I hope that you get to feeling better soon. Keep us posted on how you are doing.

Hugs, Karen
