In studies, up to 28% of people taking Wellbutrin lost more than five pounds.
It is not entirely clear why Wellbutrin can cause weight loss. Wellbutrin can often cause a loss of appetite, nausea, and vomiting -- all of which may contribute to weight loss. Often, these side effects go away with time. However, you should speak to your doc/pharmacist who prescribed the med if these side effects do not go away. Also, since weight gain can be a symptom of depression, treating the depression can lead to weight loss.
If you are experiencing too much weight loss with Wellbutrin, be sure to let the doc/pharmacist know, hope the info helps?
