I've been on Wellbutrin for about 2 weeks and Lexapro for 6 days now. The best way to describe what I'm feeling on Wellbutrin and Lexapro is the same sensation you get if you've been out partying all weekend. Last time I felt this way I'd just spent 3 days at a music festival and had been on ecstacy, speed, pot and tequila for the whole time. You'd expect to feel drained and unable to think clearly until you've rested and recovered from a weekend like that. The problem is that all I am doing is laying around and not using anything other than a little pot (and am ready to give that up too if necessary) and trying to 'rest' but no matter how long I lie down or sleep I can't shake this mentally deadened feeling like I just need more sleep but can't seem to ever feel rested. I've got this dull headache that isn't too painful but feels more like congetion in my head since I started the Lexapro and yesterday I experienced ringing in my ears for about a minute. I was in bed for nearly 8 hours last night and have done nothing but lay around in my bed or on my couch today and still I feel exhausted and brain dead. Is this what you guys call the meds 'working'? If this is what is supposed to help me I'm thinking it's not going to be a good fit. I really would rather be able to think clearly and stay focused. Your feedback would be greatly appreciated.

Hi all! This is for those of you that have or have had the same neurologist for 4 years or more. I have been with mine now since 2009.

BUT.... I feel like my visits are not what they use to be. He...
I gave my 2 week notice last Friday 13th. Now to join you fine people in a life of leisure and nothing else to do but to look out for myself....is it just me or does that sound pretty boring? My goal was to live to retire and I guess having to take early retirement because of health reasons wasn't exactly the way I had planned things. I just can't stay in that building that is reeking mildew...
