Wellbutrin and caffeine are the only stimulants that give me anxiety.

It did nothing positive for me and my roommate, which is odd, I expected it to help my roommate stay awake since she has mild narcolepsy. Raising the Wellbutrin won't take away your anxiety from what I've read and experienced.

Also they say that 400mgs of caffeine a day is okay. I know if I have more I start to shake and can't sleep. I try to stay away from it in the evening. But this is just minor stuff to tinker with that I consider when I consider when my meds are working comfortably.

Maybe you're right and you've built a tolerance to Paxil or it's just not with your unique brain chemistry. There's many recommendations I have but I don't want to say them because I don't want what happened to me to happen to you...
Now that you mention it the Wellbutrin was increased recently from 150 to 200. A couple months ago. That may be why Iím like a million times more anxious.

I do have klonopin I can take up to 2 times a day. I hardly ever take it because I know its addictive but Iíll probably use it in this case to just get me through the next two dayís till my appointment

Wellbutrin can be tricky with psychosis...itís plays with dopamine in addition to serotonin....the beginnings of paranoia are a lot like anxiety.....I know youíve been on it forever but two things happened, 1 dose increase 2 possibly changes in other meds which could effect its metabolism.

Yeah thatís true, Iím going to see about stopping it, that makes sense that it could be causing some of my problems. I think part of my depression is rooted in how stressed and paranoid/anxious Iíve been feeling too since itís so overwhelming.

Thank you guys for your input I really appreciate it

My mom's friend's bf was on Wellbutrin and he was feeling suicidal and anxious so I told him to stop taking it. He was using it for smoking and has no mental problems previously before taking it.

I took Wellbutrin over 10 years ago to quit smoking. It had no effect on me at all.

Tomorrow I'll have to see if they'll let me pay for my cell service out of my money account. A relative called the home this morning but no one knows my cell service is suspended. I don't want to lose my phone number.

I slept all day because it was too much work to be awake. I hope I don't get stomach flu again.

At least one CNA saw me about to take a hit off a disposable today. It's the weird CNA. I hope she doesn't blackmail me.

I'm more worried about whether the older CNA saw me holding and hiding my disposable when she appeared at the foot of my bed.

I wish my friend would try to get in contact with me. If he lost his phone he's probably really depressed.
