"Some side effects of Wellbutrin may occur that usually do not need medical attention. These side effects go away during treatment as your body adjusts to the medicine.
Side effects have been reported to be generally mild and transient. They are most common during the first 2 weeks of treatment and decrease in intensity and frequency with continued treatment. They generally do not lead to treatment cessation."

Ugh!!! The nausea is so bad! I feel you! Waiting for mine to pass or hope it does!? Is there a chance that it’s a permanent issue having the nausea? I also used to drink coffee day in and day out. It’s my favorite!! I always had a cup in hand now I don’t even want to drink it. Has anyone else dealt with that?
I was on Wellbutrin 150 mg and it took 6 to 8 weeks for all my side effect to stop.
I hope you are feeling better,
Hi, as already stated it can take up to 4 weeks for your body to settle down with a new medication such as wellbutrin. This is quite common and unfortunately something you will have to try to get through before your new meds can work to optimum effect. Try not to change your daily dose as this can make the side effects worse. In the mean time you can treat the symptoms with paracetamol and an anti-emetic such as cyclizine, as long as you are OK to take these, check with your pharmacist.
Hi wellbutrin. Outsidesue is correct, a few weeks or so. In my case it was a few days. Thought I'd mention that so you might see hoe it varies from person to person. Hope you feel better soon,
For me the nausea and loss of appetite lasted for about 3 weeks and then it was gone. I ate crackers and just dealt with it. I think we all just have to go thru this unpleasant time but it will get better soon as your body is adjusting. Hang in there
