I also take caffeine tablets sometimes for daytime sleepiness.

Oooh, someone else taking moclobemide. I was beginning to think I was the only one. My doctor told me it's not common.

What do you think of it? How long have you been taking it for?


Actually I've been taking it only for a few days so I don't have an opinion on it yet. I was put on various SSRIs but the sexual dysfunction was a big issue. I asked my doctor to put me on Wellbutrin but he told me it was pulled off market for some reason so he put me on Aurorix instead.

What about your experiences? Are you content with it?


Wellbutrin sounds like such a good medication. I wish they had it in the UK, too, for purposes other than stopping smoking.
Perhaps a stimulant med would help if you haven't tried one. Wellbutrin is kinda like a weak stimulant. Both can help with ADHD, weight loss/eating less, depression, & I think both can help counteract sexual dysfunction caused by other meds. I'm talking stimulants in general & things probably vary by the stimulant.

The thing is even without the meds my sex drive is not great. I'd love to try a stimulant honestly as I have diagnosed ADD too but I have a history of hearing voices so my doctor is not willing to prescribe me stimulants. Actually that's another reason why I wanted to try Wellbutrin. My doctor also said that it was a great med and all his patients who'd been on it were in trouble.

eeee. Lamictal scares me. I was on it for a little while until I looked it up. In a 6 month study 25% of patients showed build up in various organs. You can't get it out of your organs and when you get enough within an organ it causes organ failure.

Yikes! I’ve been on it more than 5 years, and it’s the mood stabilizer that works best for me. I might need to talk to my psychiatrist about that. I’m afraid to switch, though.

I am quite content. It has worked for me for 6 years. No side effects or anything. The best antidepressant I've ever tried, and I've had a few.

How is it going now it's been a little while?

So far so good! My mood significantly improved. And I don't have any side effects, either.
