    @Serenity@1 welcome to the forum. I've never heard of anyone being addicted to that but I'm sure it's possible. I would suggest a taper since its an anti depressant. Are you able to talk to your doctor or see an addiction specialist?

    I can definitely see how it can feel like that. Another user on the forum had brought up something about antidepressants being like cocain. I told him that the only one I can think of would be welbutrin at the time I was just guessing but now reading about it I'd say yes it's similar.

    It acts on the same receptors it inhibits the reuptake of norepinephrine and dopamine just l as cocain does. It's just a lot slower unless you crush the time release pill.

    I would seriously consider stopping it @Serenity@1 it can give you major seizures.

    I take 3 150's a day (XL) in the morning as an antidepressant. It also works really well to get rid of nicotine craving. When I first started I accidentally took a double dose and found that I could guide my dreams any way I wanted which was pretty cool, BUT - I had no desire to get hung up on it. A couple times I thought about doing double again but did not because it's just too much of an unknown for me. My doctor originally prescribed it because he thought it gives a bit of extra energy (he characterized it as 'a bit of ooomf') which a depressed person may need. I think it has the potential to make depression a lot harder if you get into the habit and then decide to back off because it won't be able to do its job correctly anymore. I'm actually thinking of tapering down just because I hate taking so many damned meds every day. And now that @Onceaddicted77 has indicated the possibility of seizures, that gives me an added incentive to quit even the normal dose.
