I've been on bupropion (wellbutrin) for almost 2 weeks now. I had no idea it had been used in Crohn's (off to google). I'm still in this miserable, never ending flare so I don't think it is working. I am on it for depression. Recently switched from Lexapro.
andrea, i'm sorry you are so down. i actually wanted to tell you about something i came across again. it's about taking bupropion (wellbutrin) for crohn's. there's a thread right now on the crohn's forum about it. anyway, i first learned about it a year ago when my friend with UC got remission from bupropion. since it's also a depression med (i'm not saying you need one at all), it might help with that aspect of your life. i just figured i'd mention it since it's a very cheap prescription- comes in generic bupropion and is a TNF inhibitor. it doesn't have all the same side effects as remicade and humira and i know you've tried them anyways.
i know i'm starting humira soon but now i'm wondering if i should try bupropion first. i haven't talked to anyone who's had the typical TNF side effects from it like rashes, bad headaches, you know.
