Hello there cherthom...welcome to healingwell. You have found an awesome place for information, and support, so I do hope you stick around.
When you are saying doctor, do you mean your family doctor is saying Wellbutrin or nothing, or are you talking about
a pdoc? The reason I ask is because I was first put on Lexapro and Xanax by my primary family doctor, and I told him I wasn't liking it. I was having some side effects from the Lexapro, and didn't love the idea of taking Xanax. He didn't want to deal with changing meds to find the right one...many medical doctors won't. They don't specialize in the psychiatric end of medicine the way a pdoc does. He then suggested I go to a pdoc, and that is when I got switched to Effexor XR, and Klonopin, and that is when I got my life back.
Anti depressants can take up to 6 weeks to take full affect, and it seems as if you have been on this med for over 6 weeks, so it might be time to think about
trying something else if you are not feeling better.
If you do not have a pdoc, I would strongly suggest you get one.
Again, welcome to healingwell, and I wish you all the best!
