Bupropion vs Venlafaxine

BupropionBupropion VenlafaxineVenlafaxine
Bupropion is an antidepressant used to treat a variety of conditions, including depression, other mental/mood disorders, and smoking cessation. Antidepressants can help prevent suicidal thoughts/attempts and provide other important benefits. However, studies have shown that a small number of people (especially people younger than 25) who take antidepressants for any condition may experience new or worsening depression, other mental/mood symptoms, or suicidal thoughts/attempts. Therefore, it is very important to talk with the doctor about the risks and benefits of antidepressant medication, even if treatment is not for a mental/mood condition.Venlafaxine is used to treat depression. It may improve your mood and energy level, and may help restore your interest in daily living. Venlafaxine is known as a serotonin-norepinephrine reuptake inhibitor (SNRI). It works by helping to restore the balance of certain natural substances (serotonin and norepinephrine) in the brain.

Gave me stability I needed and continues to do so..... side effects minimal, but definately makes me feel edgy and I am short tempered. Its a trade off, but its worth it.

Do NOT take this poison! It is a high-grade amphetamine. Don't let any doctor lie to you about it. I took it 5 years and have been off it 3 years, taken off this poison by a nonAmerican doctor who doesn't buy into the "give-a-pill" theory of medicine. Wellbutrin has changed my brain permanently. I was never angry before. Now I live every day very angry. My life is hell filled with anger. ...

I just started this drug and after two days I have noticed a burning on my face and a weird feeling in my neck. take 150 in the morning. No problem with other side effects but will stop this drug because it feels like an allergy to it. Have been taking cymbalta but it is expensive, this is cheaper, but not worth the change. Will call dr tomorrow, don't like the generic for welbutrin, so I guess it ...

Been on the drug for several months now and everytime I am unable to get my prescription on time I have unbearable dreams and excessive sweating. I recently missed two days in a row due to holiday shortened hours at my pharmacy and have had vertigo, nausea and vomiting for 48 hours. done taking this pill.

I have tried a number of anti-depressants and this is the only one that improves my moods so I do not cry all the time. However, my insurance company refuses to pay for it.

I've been on the drug since I was 14. While it helped with my depression, it has had long lasting side effects. Whenever I miss a dosage I go through crippling withdrawals. One time i ran out of a refill and went 2 days without it. I slept for 20 hours straight and wasn't able to wake up. Now I'm 22 and I've been trying to get off this drug for over a year. Its taking so long because my body goes ...
