It has been suggested that I consider taking Bupropion. I’ve never heard of this. Does anyone have experience with it? Is it the kind that will cause withdrawals if it is stopped? Are there side effects?

Thanks for sharing, gealach. I appreciate it. It will help in my decision about taking this drug.Yup, I'm currently taking it. I couldn't say for sure how long I've been on it, at a guess maybe 2 years-ish. I started at 150/day and now I'm at 300/day. I haven't had any side effects while taking it, but I'm also not sure it does much of anything for me.
Stimulant/upper type side effects. But again, I haven't experienced any of those. I experienced significant weight gain with brief use of an SSRI, but I haven't experienced that with this med.
This medication should not be stopped suddenly, it should be tapered down. I did try to go off it when I was at 150/day, and while I don't notice that it's actually doing anything, I was so fatigued when I stopped that I needed a nap after going from bed to couch... I could have just slept for the rest of my life and still needed a nap. So I went back on it, and shortly afterward went up to 300/day.
