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.
~ Kicks Libido into over drive
~ Eliminates cigarette cravings
~ (for me) possibly increased opiates
~ Horrible RLS most at night and a little during the day
~ Interrupts my sleep.
