I have been taking Wellbutrin for about 2 months and lately have been getting blue bruises on my hips after I have been doing stretches on the floor (carpeting). Any idea if bruising is a side effect?

Hi there,

I have not heard about bruising being a side effect from wellbutrin, but that doens't mean it is not. I would talk to the doctor just to make sure that this is nothing to worry about. Bruising can be caused from low vitamin D to leukemia. So it is nothing to not worry about. Do contact the doc. Some people do bruise easier than others. And it might be nothing, but a call to the doctor could at least ease your mind.

From what I know, Wellbutrin may cause bruising (rare).  I would suggest you talk with your Doctor either in person or by phone.
