With those symptoms, you should talk to your dr. I was allergic to wellbutrin unfortunately.
Wellbutrin can bring on Steven Johnson syndrome. It's treatable, but serious. Signs of flu are often the precursor to an allergic attack and Steven Johnson syndrome. It's so rare. But happened to me.
Take these symptoms seriously. Look up Wellbutrin and Steven Johnson syndrome online. There's a wealth of information.
