My doctor just upped my dose of Wellbutrin XL from 300 to 450 mg. I've been on the 300 for awhile and hadn't noticed any changes for good or bad. So my new doctor decided to see how the max dose would be. I've been on it for a week now with the increased dose and I've started to get what seems like a lump in the throat. I have difficulty swallowing and it's like something is caught in my throat. It doesn't last all day. It comes and goes. But it's really annoying and sometimes I get panicky and worried that my throat is going to close up. Does anyone know if this is a side effect of Wellbutrin? I've found a few cases of it online but nothing official. I did see something about potential swelling of the throat and maybe that's what this is. So I'm debating on going back to the 300 tomorrow morning and seeing if it goes away.
Any suggestions? Anyone experienced this?
