Comments from related studies:
From this study (2 days ago):
I have had these symptoms when I have gone 3-4 days off of the phentermine. I have had other symptoms when I forgot to take my venlafaxine but those are surely from not taking them because after taking them I feel those symptoms dissappear shortly thereafter.
From this study (3 days ago):
After being exposed to heat i passed out in the middle of the street
From this study (1 week ago):
i started with 150mg Bupropion twice daily, but without my doctors word i started taking 300mg Bupropion daily after the first week. Felt like the drug was really helping, 3 days in with 300mg Bupropion twice daily i was fine 4th day today anxiety is gone but i felt like i was going to faint at work today.
The light head feeling came back when i started taking 300mg just like the first 3 days on 150mg
