Ive had depression all my adult life. I was on Paxil for 25 years and it became ineffective towards the end. I switched to Wellbutrin due to the sexual side effects of Paxil that caused a deep rift in my marriage and combined with lots of others problems ended in my husband having an affair with a girl 25 years younger. We are rebuilding our marriage for the last seven months. However even though I'm taking 250 mg of Wellbutrin I am severly depressed. I have never been this bad. I sob for hours while my husbands at work. The pain is so deep. I think the depression is making it worse as I'm unable to go anywhere and have no interests in anything unless it's with my husband. I used to be soon creative- gardened,decorated,sewed, taught Sunday school. Now I feel disabled. I pray a lot that I will die. I go back to see my psycdr in two days and am thinking of going back on Paxil but am scared I will hate sex again. The one thing that the Wellbutrin has done is make me want to have sex all the time which helps the healing process in our marriage. I also postmenopausal and just went on hrt to see if that helps. I might also mention that I've lost so much weight for my already 5'4" frame. Lost 20 lbs and weigh only 96 pounds. I feel very old and ugly too.
