I am new to this site, but you might want to know that I have had a diagnosis of autoimmune hepa*** and have been taking Wellbutrin with no adverse effects. I was taking a small dose - 100 mg. at the time I was diagnosed and henceforth. Unfortunately, I felt the need to increase the dosage this past month as it really wasn't effective for me in the midst of an increase in stressful life events. I am currently in discussion with my physicians about what is safe. This past month I took 200 mg. SR and that is getting closer to meeting my need to not get depressed. I now want to know if it is okay to take 200 or 250 for the longer term without risk to my liver. I have been stable with my blood tests, shown some improvement in my last biopsy, but do have liver damage that originally placed me in a stage of cirrhosis. I am not sure I am out of the woods with the stage of my liver damage, but have been feeling well and"normal" on a course of 50 mg Azathriopine a day. I originally started on Prednisone with the confirmation of my diagnosis (3 months) and have remained on the Azathriopine since. I was diagnosed in about March 2007. I am a 53 y o female.
I'll keep you posted.
