Wellbutrin / Menstrual Cycle
1558views
I started taking Wellbutrin XL 300mg about a year ago. I'm quiet diligent in tracking my menstrual cycle and noticed after taking it for a few weeks that my period never came. I got the bloated feeling, cramps, swallon breasts but no period. Two weeks late, my period finally arrived. Since then I've had no problems at all though. My period is right on track every month. Guess it was just my body/hormone getting used to the medication.

hallucinations and knocked out
Holy esss...... I can very much relate, and I'm glad I'm not the only one that's had similar problems.

I was on 300mg of Bupropion a day, 60mg of Propanolol, and 100mg of Tramadol (as needed), and I have a history of parasomnias (sleep-walking, sleep-paralysis, sleep-eating, sleep-sex, night terrors...peeing weird places in my sleep :/, etc. ), though until I took Nortryptiline, they were *mostly* harmless and/or entertaining to people that observed me in my sleep. I did wake up yelling at

Wellbutrin and Orgasms (the good and the bad)
3650views
Hi Nicole, my names Jonathan. I know the feeling you are talking about it's become a real problem for me, but for me the weak orgasm or absence of the "peak" climax is ocuring for me while being on bupropion 300 xl. It was such a problem for me that I completely lost interest in even trying to have sexual relations or masturbation because it was too much work for very little results. The trade of was that it was working well on the depression and I noticed more energy, better outlook on things

It's okay, it's coming back but for me it was great before I stopped
