Been on 50 mg Pristiq sice early March, 211. PDoc added 100 mg Wellbutrin SR/d on 4/27. Then to increase to 100 mg 2x/d after a week. Had terrible dreams and elevated Blood glucose levels + Increased tingling & numbness after a couple of days. Went back to 100/d. Then tried it again @ 200/d w/ same results. Gone back to 100/d and may D/C. See PDoc5/25
Can Wellbutrin SR cause numbness/tingling sesations in feet/lower legs, hands / forearms, and face?

This condition is called paresthesia and can be a side effect of the Wellbutrin. You need to notify the doctor of this side effect as soon as you are able. Was you dose recently adjusted (increased)? How much Wellbutrin are you taking?
Paresthesia is generally not serious but needs to be addressed by the doctor if it continues. Try moving around a bit and see if that helps the symptoms.
