I have been on this medicine 10 days and having problems. I also take two other medicines for depression and anxiety.
Hello cubdaddy09. Yes. In regards to your heart rate, people taking Bupropion 10.8% of users have tarhycardia, or a rapid, fast heart beat. In regards to blood pressure, anywhere from 1 to 5% of the people taking Bupropion have low blood pressure or hypotension as a side effect. These are considered to be normal side effects. If they (side effects) continue to bother you, ask your doctor for her/his thoughts. Often a dose adjustment is done and the issue(s) are resolved. Best of wishes to you, pledge
Yes bupropion can increase your heart rate and blood pressure particularly when used with other antidpressants. If it is dangerously high then please consult your doctor asap. I take bupropion with another antidepressant but don't seem to have a problem. Might be a temporary side effect, but better safe than sorry.
