This is Dr. D.J., experienced Internal Medicine Specialist.
I am here to address your concerns and provide great service.
Bupropion can be used for attention deficit disorder in adults as well.
I do not suffer from ADD.
You do not but that is one of the recognized indications or FDA approved indication.
Smoking cessation is another approved use of bupropion.
These are the only approved uses for bupropion besides severe depression.
I am not a smoker= Is there anything positive about the drug besides being used as an anti-depressant?
Weight loss is the only other indication.
That means this can be used in obese people to lose weight.
I do not like the assumption from the company doctor that I am a = nut or risk to my co-workers.
that is surprising.
no, taking bupropion does not mean that.
The endocrine system collapse did cause me to gain over 50 pounds in less than 3 months..i have lost and kept off over 30 of those pounds since taking this drug.
Bupropion behaves like amphetamines--so this is mainly used to provide energy and also prevent day time sleeping.
ok so you can use it for weight loss.
that is the indication you should consider to mention on the letter.
smoking would have been another strong indication.
Nowadays, bupropion is commonly used for weight loss indication.
I do not see any problem with that.
Thank YOU= that is what my doctor said this past year. So I am assuming if he writes this as a response- (I know this is hypothetical) that I more than likely will be 'cleared' by this doctor as being 'suicidal, aggressive, etc.'
Yes of course
Otherwise, you have a valid legal case against your company
Thank you very much for your time and responses= this is a huge 'load' off of my mind as in this economy jobs are hard to come by and infinitely more if someone who I have never met-= nor has there been a work or any complaint against me or my behavior in the past 16 years where I work ( or at any time ever before)= starts out Assuming I am a 'mental case'.
do not worry.
you are doing great with all these endocrinal conditions.
You need bupropion for proper functioning and not for 'mental' problem.
Maintaining weight is part of staying healthy.
AGAIN THANKS EVER SO MUCH FOR YOUR RESPONSE AND HELP- I WILL SLEEP TONIGHT:) LOL!
