Same here - went on it once, (Budeprion XL) 3 weeks later got costochronitis... went on it a year later, and got the same result. After that, I had issues digesting gluten. I had no issues prior or took any medication prior.

Wellbutrin / Menstrual Cycle
2399views
Wellbutrin also exacerbated my menstrual cycle.
October 1, 2014
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.

Wellbutrin and Orgasms (the good and the bad)

As a man, I have noticed that I cannot have an erection. I can still masturbate and orgasm but not get hard. I am also starting Trazodone. I know it's for sleep problems; but does that aid in erections? Let me know.Thanks.
Siegfried  |  October 5, 2014
OMG I thought it was just me. Was on it previously and noticed an increase in libido and orgasm strength. Went off it for 2 years and encountered very weak and hars to reach climax. Back on it again now and they are amazing again!
Jeannie  |  September 23, 2014
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
Jonathan  |  June 18, 2014
It's okay, it's coming back but for me it was great before I stopped

Swollen feet
Same thing with me yesterday afternoon it started to swell. This morning they're so swollen I'm in pain walking, sitting, raising them and even tried to ace bandage the fluid. Nothing has worked. Tinkling in lower legs began an hour ago. Might have to go to ER except I don't have insurance
