    I have a bizarre case...

    I’m in Colorado. I haven’t entered yet. Given what i have now fervently researched all night, i have learned that dose increases on Wellbutrin can cause a switch into manic behavior. Which of course subside with dc of the medication, so now i get to fight THIS battle. Kool. I have the meeting w Peer Assistance scheduled but from what I’ve read here it appears they don’t care too much about the details surrounding the case.

    Thanks. I’m kind of intimidated and freaked out, because i honestly don’t need help with substance abuse. I have a heck of a problem with Wellbutrin though, and it looks like research backs it up. I have never behaved that erratically in my life. I have contacted a lawyer and have a psych NP who can vouch for this. I already set up a Peer Assistance appt should i wait to see if i will need to enter it?

    I have a bizarre case...

    I am going to try to keep this as short and sweet as possible. I tested positive for drug use at work and I’m sure the plan is for me to enter an IPN. Okay but heres the thing. I have a diagnosis of MDD. About two months ago i started taking 300 mg Wellbutrin daily. About one month ago..... my brain broke. I went from ‘normal’ to ‘not normal’. I was having massive constant panic and anxiety, suicidality, i would sit at home and cry all day every day when i didn’t work, and then at work i was like a frantic madman. I went and bought drugs from homeless people in the park, don’t even know what i bought. I would IV it. I called and told my Psych NP something was really wrong. He told me to discontinue the Wellbutrin immediately. Prescribed Ativan. I THEN found out i was staying up hours later than i thought i was, running around the house speaking gibberish. (My sister and i live together). I got tested 3 days later. I have now been off the Wellbutrin for 10 days and all of these symptoms have completely resolved. I disclosed to my Psych NP and stopped the Wellbutrin JUST prior to this going down and i can supply the medical records to prove it. . I’m sure I’ll get fired I’m just waiting on the call.... but.... how the heck do i proceed from here? I don’t do drugs. I mean i did, for two weeks i was a fiend. I dunno. I’m pretty bummed about this.
