I just started Welbutrin XL 150 mg sid 2 weeks ago. I am on it for PPD and PPA after an 2nd trimester miscarriage last month. I am a 29 year old female. We also just moved into a new home about 4 weeks ago. Anyways, I honestly was thinking my house was haunted. Until yesterday when I realized I have only had these symptoms since I started the Welbutrin. I am hearing things, mainly a little girl laughing and humming (both only happened once) but also heard my name called out once with no one else in the house. I hear very random things daily and they always sound very distant. Also having visual disturbances I guess, like seeing movement out of the corner of my eye, but like constantly. Also, I have started having really bad paranoia that is getting worse daily it seems. I feel like someone is constantly watching me, or even out in public when people look at me I feel like they are about to do something to me. Only other medicines I am on are a multivitamin and Vistaril 25 mg prn. I will be calling my doctor Monday, but I just wanted other people's input about this, maybe someone who has experience with this. Thank you.
I have taken Wellbutrin for over five years at the dosage of 450 mg per day. I also take antidepressants and mood stabilizers. I have never had any side effects nor have I had any audio or visual hallucinations as you stated. I would see your psychiatrist and /or psychotherapist, at your earliest opportunity as it may be that there is a psychological as well as a medication issue that need to be addressed. I wish you all the best. John Taylor
Braybray; Yes please listen to the other two here I looked all through the side effects and no mention of that which does not mean it could not still be the medication bumping against another medication all these medications work differently on many of us. But also if you just started it then sometimes you might get some strange feeling for the first week or two then they go away. But never just stop your medication without checking with the doctor. and please do that Monday. You want to make sure nothing else is going on. good luck to you. Chuck1957
