I have been on 300 mg of Wellbutrin for 8 days. 150 twice a day. I started having really hard heartbeats and palpitations on day 7 and they are still here on day 8. I worked out this morning at the gym and didn't have any problems. My doctor says they will subside but how long will it take?
Hello ecuteach. Your doctor is correct. The longer the time taking Wellbutrin, the less the side effect of tachycardia/rapid heart beat, which is a common and normal side effect to taking the drug. In clinical studies/trials this side effect was reported by 10.8% of users. Regards pledge
I get them too. Since I went to full dosage 100mg a.m. & p.m., about 2 weeks. I have follow up next week with doc gonna check with her. I've always had palpitations so they don't freak me out. I've read it's a common side effect.
I had rapid resting heart beat for a few months after increasing my dosage. Anyone having such side effects for a long time should talk to the doctor. He can prescribe drugs that lower the heartbeat.
