I have been on it for one week SR 150mg twice a day. My mouth is ALWAYS dry. My ears have a constant ringing, and I have NO appetite.. does this subside after a while??? I was on zoloft for 2 years, but way too many sexual side effects...
Wellbutrin side effects?
Added 26 Jul 2010:
Sorry I got cut off.. I'm just curious if these issues will go away after my body adjust??? The zoloft worked for me but made me either impatent or I could not reach orgasm!!!! awful. I have not had sex since starting wellbutrin so not sure about that part???? I'm going through a horrible break up right now so I don't wanna just STOP, but these side effects are driving me nuts. I can't believe how much water I am drinking because of dry mouth. Please reply
Hi, I know how you feel similar issues with different meds..I am ok now!
I believe you will not like the info I will give you.-(dry mouth/impotence/decreased libido.)

My friend you are in for a treat, talk to your Doctor to see if there is an alternative med for you which does not have so many unpleasent side effects, which you may experience from, or hopefully not.
Best of luck.
So, I see you posted this 6 months ago. I was wondering if you stuck it out of got off the Wellbutrin. I have been on it 2 weeks tomorrow and not sure if it will work out or I just need to give up. Thanks!
