I took my first dose of Wellbutrin SR about an hour ago and I feel like I'm on speed?
Is it just my imagination, or did this stuff kick in already and speed me up? I'm just all over the place!
I have never taken speed or any other illegal drugs. I was just referring to it because I feel really hepped up.

Wellbutrin SR and any Wellbutrin's are very
Similiar to Ritilan, which gives the same affect
as taking Speed.
Call your doctor, and honestly share with him
or her how your feeling. Ask him to set you up
on a good alternative to Wellbutrin. There are
other Medications out which will not make you
feel like your on speed, simply go back and see
your doctor to get it changed.

One of the side effects of Wellbutrin is mania and agitatedness. So:
1) it is either a side effect of the drug, in which case you should call your doctor immediately, or
2) it is psychosomatic (perhaps you were anxious about taking the medication?)
I'd say call your doctor right away. Be sure to let him know if you've mixed medications or anything like that. Also, try taking some slow, relaxed breaths. If you begin to feel better, it is probably anxiety. Otherwise, it may be the result of the drug.

It's not in your imagination. Wellbutrin's mode of action is similar to stimulants. The high energy is caused by Wellbutrin increasing the dopamine in your brain. Stimulants (such as coffee) and Wellbutrin both work by increasing dopamine in your brain. Increasing dopamine should also give you greater concentration along with the extra energy. Personally, I could not tolerate the stimulating effect of Wellbutrin. It also caused me to lose too much weight and bad insomnia. But everybody's different. If you can't tolerate the stimulation I would suggest getting off it.Source(s): Experience on the drug

Some people can't take any of the Anti depressants that deals with the norepinephrine receptor. This can cause you to feel hyper, wired, speeded up, whatever you want to call it. Effexor can do the same thing. Tell your doctor if it persists because there are other anti depressants that do not involve the norepinephrine receptor.

You're probably experiencing a side effect to the medication. Unless it becomes too severe you'll probably just have to bear with it. Usually as your body adjusts to the drug the side effects diminish and disappear in time.

Since you obviously know how speed feels, I think you've answered your question. Now, if you end up breaking into your own home and stealing your TV, it's time for new meds.
