My doctor put me on Welbutrin to help me quit smoking cigarettes and to help mellow my irritability and anger. Naturally I went online for experiences. I have read a few things about it improving your sex drive and well in my experience it is true. I use to have a crazy sex drive, always horny, always having fantasies in my head etc. Had a lets say healthy sex life. Well when I was diagnosed with schizophrenia I was put Latuda and it just completely killed my libido. I never wanted to have sex, was never horny, my husband and I rarely had it and it felt good when we did but it really was no big thing for me. I also noticed Latuda blocked opiates so I stopped taking it.

When I started trying wellbutrin my sex drive came back. I was in overdrive. I've been uncontrollably horny, my foot can barely brush against my 'lady parts' and I would nearly have an orgasm. I was so horny that I kept getting myself off, one right after the other. It was nice but at the same time after so many times I was like ok I'm done but the horny feeling I still had was too intense and felt I had to take care of it.

Another thing about wellbutrin, I really do feel it is helpin me quit smoking. Since I've started taking it I have gone from smoking 8-10 cigarettes a day to 3-4.
Since I've started taking it I have gone from smoking 8-10 cigarettes a day to 3-4.
One morning I was able to wait 10 hours before I had a cig. I don't have too much experience but it seems like it helped me feel opiates more. I usually need at least 3-4 Norcos to get a nice feeling going but I was able to take only 1 1/2 norco and 2 tramadol and felt it strong, some days stronger than others. But I have also had days where I took 2 norcos and 1 tramadol and didn't feel anything but dizzy so idk.

Wellbutrin does seem to make me energized too. Usually I have no motivation to do anythin but then I'll take my dose of wellbutrin and I'll start to want to clean my room. A complaint I have for this medication is that by the end of the night it gives me horrible restless legs syndrome and I can't stand that so much that I'm considering not taking it, idk though bc it seems to be doing good for me. It does make it hard to sleep though too.

PROS:
~ Kicks Libido into over drive
~ Eliminates cigarette cravings
~ Energetic
~ (for me) possibly increased opiates

CONS:
~ Horrible RLS most at night and a little during the day
~ Interrupts my sleep.
