I have diabetes type 2 and have been told 99% of all drugs in that same class will affect sugar levels, mainly making them go higher. You may need an adjustment in your meds for your sugar. Just watch your sugars extra careful. It sometimes don't happen to everyone but it is a strong possibility. Please be careful I wouldn't want to hear of you getting sicker. Hope this info helps good luck and watch them sugars.

They have upped my insulin to outrageous levels and nothing so I went off welbutrin today. My Dr had put it in my chart I was not to take it but her nurse practioner said it didnt say why so she put me back on it. I am calling tommorow to let them know I stopped it on my own. I have to have a CT scan on wed anyway so I had to go off it for three days anyway. THANK YOU so much for answering a question noone else could..I remember being one a drug with that dr once before that did this but coulnt remember whch one now I think I remember LOL Thanks Jennifer

Glad I was able to help. Sounds like there is kind of communication problem in your doctors office, I would definately call them tomorrow and straighten it out noone needs any more problems than what we have, doctors need better communication techniques, some of them anyway. Good luck tomorrow and on your test. I go for some tests tomorrow too for my stomach to find out the stage of cancer I am in. Hope you can straighten out your doctors. If I can help with anything write in and let me know. marjorie zych
