I have been having depression for about a month. I am wanting to sleep all the time, I have low energy and have very little motivation. I went from exercising almost every day of the week to not exercising at all. However, I have maintained my weight by keeping my calorie counting in check.
I was able to see my psychiatrist today. He prescribed Wellbutrin, generic name buproprion. I will take 150 mg in the morning for 1 week and then increase to 300 mg in the morning. This has been added to my Paxil for my OCD and my Latuda for my bipolar disorder.
I am looking forward to this helping. I am always optimistic when beginning a new medication. Despite my depression, I am a glass half full type of person.
Remember, it does get better!
