I called the pharmacy and they did not have heightened sense of smell as a side effect, but I think that's what's causing it. I have a very keen sense of smell but today it seems I can smell everything -- my son's BO, my dog's medicine, my basement -- all much more intense than ever before. The pharmacist mentioned taste aversion and I wonder since smell and taste are so related. I have been on it off and on for about three months. One and half month on -- two weeks off, two weeks on.
I started Wellbutrin about 3 weeks ago, and I am having the same situation. I can smell EVERTHING! The worst is smelling people. I can smell their natural scent (not BO) coming from their breath (as in their internal breath) and it makes me very nauseous my sense of smell is also completely heightened with everything else. I can smell feet if people have their shoes off. My omega 3 pill I take smells like a fish died..etc.
