Wellbutrin xl constipation

Common Questions and Answers about Wellbutrin xl constipation


1699033 tn?1514116733 Okay, I have been on Wellbutrin 300 xl (generic) for more than a month now. I am still a little jittery in the morning but not as bad. I get headaches every afternoon/evening and so I have to beat them to the punch with an Aleve at about 2:00 and even then I may still get the headache but just not as bad. Constipation has set in, still dealing with the dry mouth, and I have breakthrough panic attacks. I have been trying to self-coach my way through them..
Avatar n tn I want to stop wellbutrin xl, efferor er and ambien cr all at once. I have been taking them for over a year and have decided that it is time to stop.

Avatar f tn I have switched from prozac to wellbutrin xl due to sexual side affects. Prozac worked great for everything else for the past 11 years. I have been on Wellbutrin for 3 days and have severe insomnia, constipation and dizziness. Will these side effects last long? Will they go away eventually?
Avatar f tn I have been on Wellbutrin 150mg since October and still had some depression but when I went on a higher dosage became more irritable and anxiety increased, i didn't like the way it made me feel. I also want to tell you I am drug sensitive. P doc put me back on 150mg XL and I still have anxiety issues (and depression). Buspar seemed to give me opposite effect,made me manic, she put me on antihistamines just made me excitable or sleepy. She put me on Neurotin 300 mg.
Avatar m tn Yesterday morning I popped my first Wellbutrin XL. Wellbutrin for those neuro pharmacologically healthy is an AD (antidepressant). First time with ADs, and as mentioned in a previous thread, it's not so much I feel *depressed* as feeling a lack of motivation to get back to what is left of my former life.
Avatar n tn I have been on wellbutrin xl for a little over a month. I feel like I am starving all of the time! I can't seem to control myself. My mood is better most of the time but I still feel like I could explode! Maybe I haven't been taking it long enough. Before I started taking it I had lost 40 lbs. I have started to regain some of that. Also, the seizures that everyone is talking about is making me a little nervous. I also take metformin.
Avatar f tn I am suffering from severe wellbutrin withdrawl. I was taking 300mg Xl for about 8 months, then I would forget to take it one day, take it the next, forget 5 days, etc. I went do the Dr. which was very hard, I almost passed out trying to make an appointment. We thought it was my thyroid or hypothaimus causing me to sweat, feel weak, nausiease, sweat when it's 60 degrees, etc.
Avatar f tn Oh my God I thought I was the only one with the big tummy troubles.I started on 150 xl then went to the 300 mg xl of wellbutrin I was crying all the time anxiety on max.the doctor put me back to 150xl I still have a lot of anxiety after being on the 150xl for 3 weeks.I had my last wellbutrin yesterday and started 20 mg of prozac today.lets see how this goes.
Avatar n tn I am also taking Wellbutrin XL and have experienced missed periods. I've been to two doctors- both claimed that my missed periods were attributed to stress and/or increased exercise and not Wellbutrin. Though valid reasons, I do think that Wellbutrin XL is playing a factor. You're not alone, but it might be a good idea to see a doctor.
Avatar n tn Do you know if there is more benifits as far as weight lost with the Wellbutrin SR then the Wellbutrin XL.
Avatar n tn Since then I have had another child. I take Wellbutrin XL 300mg/day for depression and I have the mirena for bc. Otherwise, I am a healthy person. I am finishing nursing school this year, and I realize that this may be something to worry about. I would appreciate your help! Thank you.
Avatar f tn I'm already overweight so this will definitely not work. I took Wellbutrin XL a while back and loved it! Gave me my life back but....I had no anxiety issues back then. Hmm........

Avatar f tn I have been taking welbutrin XL 300mg for about a month now and am having horrible constipation and heart burn also heart populations. I was on 150 mg at first but did not help with my depression. The 300 mg does. But now these two side affects is making me want to quit cold turkey tomorrow! I have been taking 2 stool softners a day also with little luck. Ugh :( I don't know what to do...also I'm tired of switching meds around. Tried celexa with bad headaches.
Avatar n tn Hang in there to anyone getting off of this drug. It will pass. I am on wellbutrin xl right now. Has anyone had bad side effects when getting off this one?

168348 tn?1379360675 I'm also on Advair, Amlodipine Besaylate, Clindamycin Phosphate, Tretinoin gel, Noritate, Benzol Peroxide, Wellbutrin XL, and Cymbalta. I have asthma, allergies, high blood pressure, Seasonal Affective Disorder, and Atophic Dermatitist. I suspect I have PCOS, but since I don't have cystic ovaries, didn't have trouble conceiving (have one daughter), and am not overweight, drs don't put much weight into it, even though my profile looks like a metabolic or endocrine problem.
Avatar f tn We immediately stopped that one and proceeded to try wellbutrin xl for 3 weeks but he heavily focused on any depression I might have that appointment which concerned me because it was no longer focused on pain management. I tolerated wellbutrin xl well for the 3 weeks I was on it but it pushed my tremors from inconsistent mild to inconsistent moderate and impeded driving and everyday functionality.
Avatar f tn First of all I want to thank you for taking the time to talk about this. I appreciate it. I am a 41 yr. old female. I don't have a very remarkable medical history. Have smoked for 20 yrs. about a pk a day. Last three yrs. smoke less than 1/2 pk a day.
Avatar f tn Dr switched me to Wellbutrin xl 150mg which I felt great the first few hours after taking but by the evenings I was having horrible mood swings, any little thing set me off or made me want to scream. I was impatient with my son and every thing my poor husband did got on my nerves. I went throught this for 4-5 weeks because I know meds can take time. When I got to the point I couldnt stand myself I knew it had to be stopped which really bothered me.
Avatar m tn i guess that's all list of medications i take--alprazolam, diazapam, wellbutrin xl, ambien cr, robaxin, promethazine, furomeside, metropolol B/p. gabapentin, fish oil high chol, aspirin 81mg, levothyroxin, requip, prevacid, hydrocodone, celebrex, vytorin, i think that's it this is just off the top of my head. oh yeow a multi vitamin for over 50 i just started.
1878139 tn?1320547798 Neoral, Imuran, Wellbutrin XL, Effexor XR, Neurontnin, and Zoloft prior to menses only for TX of PMDD. This has been an enormous amount of less than thrilling information for me to digest- all in the past week to 10 days. I've researched the new DXs and they seem to overlap in many instances. Could these all be different facets of the same disease process? What additional tests would help in determining what is going on here?
Avatar f tn I'm supposed to use a CPAP set on 7, but my mask is torn and I can't afford a new one. Medicaid will not pay. I now take Concerta- 90mg in the morning, Wellbutrin XL-450mg in the morning which was changed from 300mg yesterday. I take 2mg of Klonopin at night to help me sleep but I still wake up everytime I turn over. I can also take 2mg of Klonopin during the day if I get to stressed. I've done that once.
108944 tn?1222281078 I've now been bumped from 75mg (from the last post...about a month ago) to 200. I was on a combo of Wellbutrin XL and Topo but for me the combo was not working (Wellbutrin would make me really "witchy" and irritated). For years previous to this combination I was a victim (hate that word but I'll use it for now) of the SSRIs and yes like many of you I gained the dreaded 40/50 pounds!! Now I am fighting to get them off, and have found Topamax like you have.
696149 tn?1314324559 I mean, I'm not taking any other opiods and I'm also taking Welbutrin XL and Lamictal. These are new. Even when I was taking the Suboxone, I wasn't taking anything at all except that to make sure it was nothing else. I just don't understand it. If I'm allergic to Suboxone and Subutex, then why doesn't it make me feel like right away? I'm just scared to go off because I don't want to be depressed.
Avatar n tn About this same time I had decided to start weaning myself off of Effexor for several different reasons. I was taking both Wellbutrin XL and Effexor XR and was just tired of taking so many medications ( I am also on hormone replacement therapy). The side effects I had from Effexor were not that totally bad; sweating and being hot when nobody else was, decreased sexual feelings, not as intense orgasms. I had quit about a year ago but don't remember feeling like this at all.
