Hi bryansmom. Are you taking generic bupropion? Are you taking the SR or the XL version? I got headaches when I was taking the bupropion XL.

bryansmom; here is a list of the most common side effects of Wellbutrin SR OR XL THIS IS ON brand and generic myself I have no problems with any brand. It's just gotten a bad rap because of a recall they had on the generic years ago and it just keeps going around,Granted I never dought anyone because the binders are different and that is what some can react.So no matter what the mind is as powerful as the medications,And some you can look for whatever side effect you want and get it.But the active ingredients are exact both brand and generic are allowed a 3.5 to 4% difference in levels per batch.Anyway here you well see very common is Migraines,and Headache and these are even more common the first week or two of taking the medication then many of those side effects go away.But if it's been longer than that let the doctor know.okay, here you go with the most common side effects((Commonly reported side effects of bupropion include insomnia, nausea, weight loss, pharyngitis, constipation, dizziness, headache, and xerostomia. Other side effects include chest pain, arthralgia, skin rash, urinary frequency, agitation, abdominal pain, migraine, good luck Chuck1957
