Hi All,
I have been on Paxil for appx. 15 years. Recently (about 6 or 7 weeks ago) my Doctor added Wellbutrin to the mix.
I have been sweating up a storm! At first it was hard to tell if it was the meds or the extremely hot and humid weather we've had this year. Pretty convinced now that it is more med related.
Anyone else have this problem?
Thanks

I did, and it made me feel like I was drinking too much coffee. I would tell your doc about it.

Take care,
Jess

Hi Grannymae,

In my opinion, welbutrin has a type of a stimulant effect to it. It did for me anyhow. I could think so clearly and I felt as my thinking was really sharp. It is just that I needed a high dose for depression and when they raised that dose, it made me nervous and I couldn't sleep. I wouldn't be surprised if the increased sweating was from the wellbutrin. I would discuss it with the doctor though. Have you read about the side effects? I would google it and see what is said. Too much sweating isn't good, so keep hydrated.

Talk to your doc and see what they say.

Hugs, Karen

Hi grannymae,

Increased sweating is one of the side effects of Wellbutrin. I've been taking it for 3 months now and I do sweat more easely but it's not that bad.

Other than that, has it helped you? How long have you been taking Wellbutrin? Often side effects stop after a while...

Take care,

Hi Caro and Thanks! Misery loves company at times!

I have been on Wellbutrin about 6 maybe 7 weeks. I really do think it is helping, however I still take the other stuff too. I guess I will take the sweating over the 'no improvement', for sure!
