I take bupropuon and would not change it. I feel much better, but I do have to take trazidone to help me sleep when I'm having a hard time staying asleep.

When I don't take it, I toss and turn and sleep is interrupted more. B12 daily helps with energy and immune system.

I'm just on buproprin since August. Lately it hasn't been enough to keep me from sinking further. The fatigue is one of my biggest issues. I have no energy and would just like to sleep for a week, but when I do sleep it isn't very good.

Seroquel had the same effect on me. It made me so tired all the time. Lat year, I was put on Buspiron to supplement an anti anxiety pill I had been taking for a time. As a result, I have less panic attacks and don't get tired so easily as with other drugs. I have a hard time finding medicine with the right fit for me as I am so sensitive to medicine side affects. As my late husband would say, I am the hang nail.

I’m am on Abilify, lamictal, Topomax and Lithium, Xanax and Ambien for sleep. I was on bupropion but my psychiatrist took me off of it as it can increase agitation when you are bipolar. I totally noticed those side effects.
