My doctor prescribed milligrams of Wellbutrin, or bupropion, twice a day, and a month later I had the libido of an year-old boy. Everything changed—no more dryness, no more pain. An increased interest in sex. Not to mention that my mood was elevated and I was generally more upbeat. And not only haven't I encountered the weight gain that people often complain of with selective serotonin reuptake inhibitors SSRIs like Prozac but I feel as if my metabolism got a boost. Nothing dramatic; I just got a little trimmer without changing my diet or exercising more, though it isn't clear whether or how Wellbutrin affects metabolism.
