Strange feelings with mid-term usage of wellbutrin

I restarted wellbultrin about 2 moths ago. It starts to work (gives me concentration when i study) after 1-2 days. After 10-15 days, it makes me sleepy mildly but i don't want to sleep because i start to have vivid dreams and nightmares. Also it makes me forgetful (not forgetfulness exactly but it's difficult to explain and i can't find the right term even in Turkish) in daily life. I was already forgetful for many years but this is something different and worse. I'm not sure but it may be referred as brainfog.
I had to have a break a few days because of these side effects. And then i restarted wellbutrin about 15 days ago. Yesterday i had nightmares again. And today i felt as if i'm hearing for the first time some subjects which i'd already known.
Interestingly i felt same when i used 150 mg and 300 mg daily.
Is there anyone who experienced any side effects like me?
Do you think the dosage is too high or too low?

Re: Strange feelings with mid-term usage of wellbutrin

I had high hopes for Wellbutrin, and tried it on 2 different occasions. I had bad experiences both times, but they were bad in a different way: made me angry and short-tempered. I had to quit before I drove all my friends away.

Off topic, but I see you have atopic dermatitis, and I have to share my success with using Evening Primrose Oil. I notice Dr. Weil on his website recommends taking it orally. But for many years whenever I have a flare up, I just puncture a capsule and rub the oil on my skin once or twice a day (then swallow the deflated capsule). It takes several days to show an improvement, and within 2 weeks the bumps, cracks and scales are gone. Your mileage may vary.

Re: Strange feelings with mid-term usage of wellbutrin

Wellbutrin made me a little angry only for a few days of my first time use.
I think my metabolism is very different than most of people.To my knowledge ritalin works about %60-70 of people. It worked on me for about 2 week and than never. Modiwake makes most of people sleepless,alert but never worked at me. Strattera made me more sleepy than ever.
Thanks for your suggestion but I've found conflicting evidence about Evening Primrose Oil. Anyway i will try it.
