Thanks for this question
Do you take any other meds?
Thanks ~Yes with the Wellbutrin I take clonazepam and quietiapine and a blue zopiclone for sleep~I am on three eye drops for eyes pressure~ but the Specialist knows about the others and said no problem~ when I first moved here I was taking the others~ but no anti~ depressant and it was not helping me at all~ just making me so tired~and I could not even go to the Lobby~ whereas the Psychiatrist up here said I should have the Wellbutrin and it was a long journey~ as they had me the non brand one and I broke out in a bad rash~I had to wait two weeks to get rid of that out of my system~then back again on the brand name~I did not feel any improvement until about the 4th week and then I started to feel human again and could venture out moreso~I was elated~the Psychiatrist gives me all the credit for persisting and listening to him~they give me two PRN's to take also~ but I never feel like I need them ~they are clonazepam~ as I said my mother was Bipolar and it is coming out in many of my family members~my father was OCD as I look back~ we did not know about these disorders then~as my mother wisely said first what could they have done for her even if she knew and she also said her and my father should never have had children~My father was extremely intelligent and was a Pilot and Navigator in the Lancasters during the war and was an Officer~ so his problem never seemed to hinder him~ maybe he did not have OCD~ but maybe more like me the personality one as he was very dedicated to his work always!! I hope this helps~Martha~ I was relieved when the Doctor said I was not Bipolar~my young brother took lithium and it destroyed his kidneys and is on dialysis~
I'm very sorry about this. What is your question?
