I am a 47 year old male diagnosed with ADHD combined with bouts of major depression. Over the years I have tried every tricyclic, SSRI, SNRI and atypical antidepressant on the market. While I was taking Ritalin or Dexedrine I never experienced the dpression but I decided that I wanted to go medication-free for my ADHD. I question the wisdom of that decision but anyhow my doctor suggested we try We ... Show Full Comment

I am the mother of a 16 year old who takes this medication. It has worked great for her for about 2 years. She is doing great, pleasant, not angry. However, my problem is the cost. It costs us $600.00 per month and it keeps going up! We tried the generic version by Par Pharma. and it didn't work. The 'deals' that Valeant offer for Wellbutrin are only for people over 18. Can anyone help ... Show Full Comment

Very very happy on/with this drug and it a ... Show Full Comment

Comment:
As an antidepressant, it worked wonders within the first week, as the dose was being titrated up. I had energy and experienced needed weight loss and was very pleased, as I did not do well on SSRI or SNRIs.
