what side effects did you guys have with wellbutrin? i’m on or was on wellbutrin xl for a couple weeks and i had all the super uncommon ones like anxiety, rashes, sore throat, muscle pain and more. i also have fibromyalgia so the anxiety was increasing my pain to an extreme amount. my psychiatrist said i could stop taking it till i see her again but i just wanna know i should try it again or ask for something else?

      Wellbutrin helped me a ton until it didn't. If you're having a lot of pain with fibro, ask about cymbalta. Cymbalta is used for depression and anxiety but helps with nerve/bone pain. First 2 weeks suck but after that it made a huge difference in my pain and mental state

      Just a word of caution. Once you get to doses of 150 mgs or higher it can cause seizures. It's even worse for people who have seizure disorders and epilepsy.

      I had similar side effects to Prozac after taking it for nearly 3 years, but if you’re having those effects already your psych will probably want to have you try something else.
