Wellbutrin Worse Than Depression?

hi! I am on Day 14 of taking Wellbutrin (well, the off brand) XL 450mg a day.

I filled this Rx because the stresses in my life bogged me down. The first few days, i thought it just hadnt kicked in yet. But i am experiencing the loss of appetite & more energy so i'm not complaining!! Unfortunately, im also experiencing EXTREME emotions. I cry over EVERYTHING, which has never been like me before. In a way, its making my depression worse because I dont want to go anywhere for fear that i will cry every 10 minutes. I also take Ativan 1mg 3x per day. The Ativan has been a Godsend. I've been taking it for about 10 months.
Anywho, I was just wondering if anyone else has had these crying spells & WILL THEY GO AWAY?

i know it takes some time for my system to adjust, but im beginning to think being depressed is better than this.
