From this study (12 hours ago):
I discontinued Zoloft and started Wellbutrin over one month ago. At first I assumed that the brain zaps were from Zoloft withdrawal, but after a month on Wellbutrin exclusively, I wonder if the brain zaps could be from the Wellbutrin. I have taken Wellbutrin in the past but did not have this strange side effect.

I had a baby 6 mo ago and am living with family until we get a place of our on its very stress full! 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!
