Caffeine has a negative effect on some people with DP because it is a stimulant ,and people with DP are somehow hyperaware ,once they drink coffee they will sense the increased heart rate and therefore become more anxious.It is a bit similar to weed ,when you notice something has changed and you freak out

Today is my 3rd or 4th day on Wellbutrin and I’m feeling more disconnected to my brain. The past 3 meds I tried made that happen too but worse. I’m going to stay on it a while longer just to make sure it’s not a placebo. I’m hoping the extra dopamine and norepinephrine from the Wellbutrin will help my blank-mind/fatigue.

Okay now I’m really starting to get worried because I just got started on a family vacation and I’m feeling really uncomfortable and totally out of it. All I feel like doing is going home. Have feelings of disparity and overall more depressed and anxious. More DP than my normal level which I can handle. Should I stop taking the med while I’m on this trip? I’m going to have an awful time if I stay on it. I’m on 150mg if Wellbutrin XR
