Hi, I'm new here. I'm having a weird experience with Wellbutrin, and am wondering if others have had this experience too. I've been taking it for about 3 years. Sometimes it seems to work and sometimes it doesn't. I always take the same dosage, but for the last week or so, I feel like I've been taking a double dose. I feel jittery, anxious, I have trouble sleeping, my hands really shake. I've checked my pills, and I am definitely taking the prescribed dosage. Has anyone ever had that experience, where after awhile, your medication feels twice as powerful? confused

Two thoughts come to mind.

1) The length of day is way longer (in my part of the U.S.). If that is the case for you, you are getting more seratonin from the longer daylight and even more if you are more active.

2) Is there any chance you switched from Wellbutrin to a time released or extended ?? Because the dosing may be different. That happened to a friend of mine and it really overmedicated him.

Let us know how you resolve this.
