As a healthy 21 year old, with no preexisting health conditions, on wellbutrin, is the preworkout C4 safe to use?
Wake UP, Ralph!: It's a complete waste of money. Nothing in it you don't already make endogenously or can't get from regular MVIs. Consume stuff your body already makes, all that happens is that you need to make less of it. Excess amino acids etc are burned as fuel and the wastes excreted. So you'll stand there with your fly open & literally watch your money go down the toilet. Be a skeptic, not a sucker, Ralph. ...Read more
I've noticed that drinking espresso while on Wellbutrin helps my mood/energy, but many docs say caffeine is bad for health. Should I keep drinking it?

Severe health anxiety and depression. CBT and Wellbutrin and Lexapro not working. Can't sleep , can't stop worrying. What can I do ? Life stinks .
Regulation of habits: Besides the CBT, Wellbutrin & Lexapro try a notebook or tablet to track your daily routines like diet, sleep, regular meals, 7-9, 11-1, 5-7, enough sleep, exercise, dietary intake (calories), meditation, relaxation exercises, tai-chi, martial arts, prayer, anything that will help light up the frontal lobes if we would scan yours.

Unexpected Results: It is not uncommon to withdraw antidepressant therapy after 12-18 months. Most patients, who had a complete remission of their symptoms during this time, will remain symptom free. There is a chance the symptoms could return. A patient should be monitored closely as they withdraw treatment just as they were monitored when they initiated treatment. Do not cease treatment on your own. ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers
How can I tell if my wellbutrin dose is not high enough ? 7 days in and i can't tell a difference yet. Should i give it more time ?
Too soon yet: Yes, it's too soon to know. Like other antidepressants, wellbutrin requires at least 4-6 weeks of consistent dosing to show positive effects. You should be checking in with your doctor, who can gradually titrate your dose. Most often this begins at a lower dose so your body can equilibrate; then dose is increased for optimal symptom relief. Be well. ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers
