hey guys thought i would make my first post in this section, i'm a long term depressive and anxious person (you love me already lol). my food problem is getting out of control and i've honestly had enough of this feeling.. every night i break out in sweats, my heart speeds up, salivating, getting breathless like a drug addict because i'm deciding whether to break my diet and binge (10 packs of chips, plates full of everything, fast as possible). i walk back in to the kitchen and do this all day and night.. the anxiety is crazy. generally it is 1 day on diet and one day off, that's why my weight might seem in the normal range.
i've just started wellbutrin the past week and moved up to 300mg after reading many glowing reviews about it helping with cravings, binges plus increased energy and insomnia. infact, i seem to have developed the complete opposite effect - feeling drowsy, lack of motivation, barely any difference in appetite. prozac made it impossible to lose weight no matter what i did, and i have a new box of lexapro at the insistence of psychiatrist that it cannot cause weight gain. well the internet says different and even the pamphlet says it is a common side effect.
can the appetite suppressant effect of wellbutrin kick in weeks into starting? from what i've read it's generally starts within the first week and gradually fades.
if you have stories of your meds or a similar issue in general would be nice to chat.
love and light,
