My doctor put me on welbutrin to help me stop smoking. I took it for 3 weeks and it made me slow down but the side effects were too much. I was very cranky and would scream and yell at my children and husband. I would have fits of rage and hit my husband. I just want to warn everyone that just because it is used to treat mental disorders it is dangerous. I stopped taking it and have not had any raging. It erks me cause I cannot take anything to help me stop smoking. I cannot do the patches cause my heart, the gum makes me very ill. Don't know what else to do. But just wanted to warn everyone.
