I have been on Wellbutrin for a few months now and it was working great! Slowed down on my smoking and I've taken off about 25 pounds. But the effects on my mood have tapered off as of late, as well as helping with the weightloss. And the side effects are almost nil.

Should I just maybe try a higher dose? I really don't want to switch again. I had started with Prozac, which turned me into a complete pig when it came to eating. I packed on about 50 pounds quickly which made me even more irritable.
