I think the Wellbutrin is making my anger worse bc I forgot my am dose and I felt much better but I took it any way bc I am suppose to and with in an hour I was angry for no real reason. Today I have skipped on purpose and I feel better. I take 150mg twice a day generic sr and I have noticed a slight headache not bad just enough to aggravate me even more! I just want to feel better I love being a new mommy but I get so mad at everyone else!
