Wellbutrin is a class B for pregnancy, which is low to low moderate risk. As you know you should only take a drug during pregnancy if you absolutely need the drug. Ofcourse, you and your doc know what you need. All meds cross the placenta and mix with the babies circulation, affecting the baby. The first and third trimester are when the baby can be most affected by meds. During the first trimester organ development occurs and risk is very high. During the last trimester the baby is born and must then rid itself of any and all remaining drug that is present. So, if you can hold off till after the first trimester then great. Remember, this is not a high risk drug (per drug guide and hospital stats etc.) compared to other drugs. Get with your doc or see someone who you feel you ca trust at a clinic. Blessings to you and the little oneOh, i did assume you were with child, sorry if i was incorrect. Take care

Jbiddle72,
Yes it can. You need to let your doctor know that you are pregnant if you are taking this because it can cause you to retain fluid, increase your chances of having a seizure, and/or cause you problems when breastfeeding. Hope this helps.
