    Mikie recently made me aware of the "fine print" in the packaging "product information" of wellbutrin...he mentioned wellbutrin is recommended for short term use only.
    Sure enough after I dug out one of the inserts it says
    "effectivness of long term use, more than 6 weeks, has not been evaluated in trials" YIKES!!

    I've been on this stuff for about 2 years! What is up with these Doctors????????? I guess I'm just as bad, I should have been aware of this myself.

    Anyone else taking wellbutrin for an extended period??
    Have you heard anything about short or long term use?
    I will find out more about this next Monday and let ya'all
    know what I find out!

    Thanks Mikie,
    Susan

    That it is unsafe, just that they don't know that it is safe for long-term use.

    Benzos are not recommended for long-term use either, but I have been taking Klonopin for about a year without problems.
