Common Questions and Answers about Bupropion and dizziness


1325668 tn?1294447726 I would imagine, because it is also an antidepressant it might cause dizziness. It may take a few days to adjust and if it persists I would talk to your doctor. Good luck on your quit and if you need any support, we are here for you.
Avatar n tn So far I have experienced drowsiness, fatigue, head ache, nausea, and dizziness. All of these have been minor. Wellbutrin Withdrawl Schedule After just under 2 years on 150 mg per day Withdrawl will take me just under 8 weeks to complete No. Days Day of Week Date Dosage (mg) No.
Avatar m tn You can also get a low blood sugar on metformin, if you are not eating properly - and that can cause dizziness.
5050843 tn?1362873926 took half my pill for 3 nights and on the 4th morning I started 150mg of Wellbutrin (Bupropion). This Monday will be 2 weeks that I have been on the Bupropion and it has been a living hell so far. The panic attacks have came back, I'm very irritable, short fused and cry at the drop of a dime-then immediately feel guilty afterwards.
Avatar n tn Got rid of the dizziness/unsteadiness and faint feeling within 3 days. I now still have some eye pain, and only hear the 'whoosh' when my eyes are really tired. This was triggered by a varicella vaccination.
Avatar n tn I get the sensation that my eyes are moving rapidly (not saying that actually happens, it just feels like that), and I have a sense of dizziness overcome me. I have to open my eyes wide to try and stabilize, but even a second or two of this episode is enough to hinder me for a period of 48-72 hours. About a minute after opening my eyes, a sweat breaks out over most of my body, I become clammy very quickly. For the first day, I can barely move due to the overwhelming sensation of nausea.
Avatar n tn i take two doses of it a day equaling out to 300mg a day. How bad are the two (alcohol and bupropion) when put together? I smoke a pack a day too... what can happen to me?
Avatar n tn Side effects of Lyrica including sleepiness, dizziness, blurry vision, weight gain, trouble concentrating, swelling of the hands and feet, and dry mouth. Lastly, Paxil can also be associated with weight gain. Again as stated before Wellbutrin has a lower incidence of weight gain . The average weight gain with paroxetine (Paxil®) for someone who weighs 150 pounds is about 5 pounds. Some people can gain much more.
Avatar f tn Regarding your medications, there is a major drug-drug interaction between fluoxetine (Prozac) and bupropion (Wellbutrin). Bupropion can increase the level of fluoxetine in the blood and thus worsen adverse effect. Both fluoxetine and bupropion may cause sweating, rash and pruritus.
365714 tn?1292202708 I'm 24 and within the normal bodyweight for my hight though I would like to lose about 10lbs and still remain healthy. I did have my blood sugar checked a while ago and nothing came out abnormal. I wonder if it could be brought on as a side effect of wellbutrin? If not that, we also had the heat turned up for the weather which may have made it far worse. I seem to suffer this more in the winter. But it shouldn't be that dry in the room. I have lots of house plants and keep them fairly moist.
Avatar m tn The single biggest mistake that I ever made in my life was taking my Psychologist’s advice and starting Wellbutrin (Bupropion). It completely destroyed my life. The anger and irritability that it caused were definitely a part of that. If I were you I would avoid it at all costs. Be careful the withdrawal can be nasty.
Avatar n tn I'm taking Wellbutrin for Menopausal symptoms, not depression, having switched from Effexor. After two weeks of headaches, nausea, and dizziness, I am finally over the initial side effects. Not to mention no more hot flashes and desire to "bite off heads". Oh ya, sex is great again! My Dr. did say a benefit was weight loss and a higher libido. I said it was a no brainer. However, I got weight gain, not loss, plus a sensitive stomach.
Avatar n tn I finally have a dr who thinks I've been having seisures. My sister has Epilepsy. I am 39 years old and have had dizziness so bad I have not been able to function. my dizziness is gone. I feel a little stupid from the meds. The dr assures me that will go away. I've lost 7 pounds which is okay since I packed on weight while the other doctors treated me as crazy. My last diagnosis was MS and I was so relieved not to have MS.
Avatar m tn Cetirizine, duloxetine, and bupropion - may increase side effects such as dizziness and drowsiness. Please be cautious of fall risks. Please consult your provider if your symptoms are not relieved by over-the-counter medications and self treatment. Take care! For more information, please go to: 1.

Avatar n tn My mom and I have both had periods of one or two days where we couldn't get a refill and we both suffered extreme withdrawl symptoms, including migranes, dizziness, blurred vision, insomnia, body aches, and not being able to hold down food. And we are just on the minimum dosage.
Avatar n tn Medications in this category include nefazodone, venlafaxine and duloxetine. A medication that also works with the brain chemical dopamine is bupropion. Bupropion is unlikely to cause weight gain, and in fact, may cause some weight loss. It is also used to help people quit smoking.
Avatar f tn So I have been taking venlafaxine (effexor) 150mg for 3 years now and bupropion (wellbutrin) 150mg for 3 months now and I recently had to go to surgery.I had an ovarian cyst that needed to be drained and my appendix taken out in the same operation. Anyways the doctors prescribed me with hydrocodone (vicodin) 5-325TB , ibuprofen 600mg and Doc-q-lace 100mg and I've taking the hydrocodone, ibuprofen,and doc-q-lace only about four times or less since my surgery on Monday (today is Sunday haha).
Avatar n tn Should I expect withdrawal symptoms? I woke up this morning feeling awful, and I have recurring headaches and dizziness. My chest hurts and it hurts to take deep breaths... I don't know if this is the result of a cold/flu or withdrawal. Is it possible for me to withdraw after only taking the drug for 30 days? Please give suggestions as to what I should do... thank you.
Avatar f tn They indicate that you may have an increased risk for seizures, dizziness, drowsiness, difficulty concentrating and more! And this is not taking in account the individual drugs' adverse effects, which include the following (pertinent to you): Dizziness, orthostatic hypotension, drowsiness, weight gain, blurry vision, confusion, delusion, hallucinations, neurological impairment, weakness, disorientation, incoordination, balance issues... Dare I say more?
1691275 tn?1322331107 And now I feel HORRIBLE. Constant headache, dizziness, eye pain, and derealization are the worst bits and they're really bad. Is this typical? And if any of you have had a withdrawal syndrome from Wellbutrin, how long does it usually last?
Avatar m tn I am now experiencing a moderate amount of fatigue and dizziness, both of which are somewhat annoying though a bit disconcerting. Am I wrongly attributing these symptoms to withdrawal, if not, how long do you think it will take for them to abate?
Avatar n tn Wellbutrin is the version of bupropion often prescribed and intended to treat depression, while Zyban is used for smoking cessation. (Though some Docs prescribe Wellbutrin to help stop smoking too..) Good luck stopping smoking! I'm sure you will feel better!
Avatar dr m tn In many cases, taking a good history and asking some pointed questions can solve a medical problem without resorting to medications. For example, I saw a man in his late 30’s who came to see me with 3 days of left ear sound distortion and reverberation with mild fullness. He had no other problems, including hearing loss. His exam was completely normal.
Avatar n tn The first day or so, not too much trama, however, by day 3 the nausea, head-spinning, tingling sensations, dizziness and just plain feeling sick-in-the-head and out-of-it feelings took over. Since I am new to this kind of med transition, can you tell me if what I am physically feeling is pretty usual when changing medications. I just don't want to lift my head up, it's like the hangover from down below, that won't go away or lessen.
3166753 tn?1370061652 I just started see a Chiropractor I haven't seen since 1996 and now recently because my muscles where so tight and had a big knot in my shoulder and up my neck and then going down to my lower shoulder blades. In May, June and July I was overexerting myself in landscaping outside.. I dug out a 10 year arborvitae shrub I dug a 20 foot x 8" deep trench for a walkway Pruned large forsysthia Pruned blackberries.
Avatar n tn I was on it for one week and started having chest pains, tachycardia and dizziness. I went to the ER because I was concerned. The said nothing was wrong with my heart. So I tried to find the answer elsewhere. I looked up the side effects of Trazodone. All my syptoms and more are listed. I went back to the doctor yesterday. I told him what happened. He said he has prescribed Trazodone to thousands of patients and I was the only one who ever had this problem.
Avatar f tn In regards to weight loss, it was a bit of an experiment on my psychiatrists part really - the med Contrave/Mysimba consists of bupropion and naltrexone, and since bupropion/wellbutrin is in some studies considered to aggravate anxiety only in first few weeks i though i'd give it a try.
Avatar n tn I just tried Wellbutrin because I read that it had fewer side effects than others and may help lose weight (and I had just tried Cymbalta and Effexor and didn't like the side effects)...I was a little hesitant to try Wellbutrin since I had success with Prozac in the past, which works on Serotonin (like Zoloft) and Wellbutrin works on Dopamine (a completely different drug)...
Avatar n tn I called the pharmacist and was told it would be fine to go right from the effexor xr 150mg to the wellbutrin sr 150mg(Sandoz-Bupropion SR150mg) This is the end of day 3 and I feel like I am going to die. I cry every few hours, my eyes can't focus and it feel as if someone is shaking miniature bean bags in my temples every 15 mins. I can't walk straight, and feel stomach sick every few hours. How long will this last. Should I go back on the effexor 150.
