One study in which 150 patients received the sustained released form of bupropion (the active ingredient contained in Wellbutrin) reported the incidence of orgasm dysfunction at 8% in patients receiving a 300 mg daily dose and 10% in patients receiving a 400 mg daily dose.

Among antidepressants, bupropion may be associated with the lowest incidence of sexual dysfunction (i.e., impotence, abnormal ejaculation, changes in libido).[Ref]

Common (1% to 10%): Decrease in sexual function, dysmenorrhea, increased/decreased libido, menstrual complaints, nocturia, urinary frequency, urinary tract infection, urinary urgency, vaginal hemorrhage
