When I was in the hospital and battling depression and emotional ups and downs the psychologist started me on Wellbutrin. I had been on other medications in the past for short term depression but never really noticed any change in my emotional well-being. I do not suffer from depression on a regular basis; for me it's usually something that lasts a few weeks while I am having issues with my residual or seasonal chronic pain. I did notice my emotional stability was a bit better after taking this about two weeks but as mentioned, I do not suffer from depression all the time. When I was released from the hospital I was given a prescription for it but elected to not have it filled because I knew that my situation and circumstances were changing for the better. I did notice that my mood was elevated and when I did have a setback in physical therapy it wasn't as overwhelming as it was before I started taking Wellbutrin.
