I'd rather lose weight than gain, but I also don't want to be a twig and feel exhausted all the time, which I find that I have been. It seems to work well for me but it does make me feel more aggressive and short tempered. I also take celexa. Nina November 22, Dore August 5,9: Is there a difference? Just read topomax not only causes you to lose hair, but causes the follicle to close - so you won't get any new hair growth!
Danielle June 12,5: I am pretty even emotionally each day and can focus much better. My doctor said that not everyone experiences weight gain on it, but I have two friends who have also been on it and who had similar experiences to mine.
The celexa seems to help my depression more than Wellbutrin. The bupropion added to my other meds have me feeling better than I have in a long time, no more laying in bed at night writing suicide notes in my head or having nightmares every night for years.
Was on mg for about three months. I was never hungry. Losing weight was welcome side effect. No impulsive desire to eat or anything anymore! Dear Dave, thanks for your comment.
Hello, I started taking Welbutrin about a month and a half ago to help manage my feelings of grief and depression, which included lack of motivation, loss of interest, sleep disruption, and significant weight gain. Paxil effects began to diminish and side effects began to increase, including the horrible brain zaps. I stopped taking the bupropion and went back to my generic Lexapro. I have gained 69 pounds. So frustrated, working so hard to pay attention to what I'm doing eating and exercising.
Antidepressants that cause weight loss: Wellbutrin (Bupropion)
I take MG daily. Does not mean a person is likely to have them. I haven't tried using it yet, but I will. Doctor put me on it for a "zip" to start my day. I realize this post is slightly old but I wanted to respond for anyone who is checking online to see if generic Wellbutrin can cause weight gain.
My doctor tested my thyroid and that came back negative.
