Wellbutrin (bupropion) was causing bad nausea/indigestion, I was on it for 3 weeks , stopped med, how long till those side effects go away?

Roughly speaking?: Anywhere between 60-150 hrs. pretty much everything should be cleared out of your system. So if we average that range out I'd say around 100 hrs. from your last dose you should be Wellbutriin Clean from your bloodstream. ...Read more

I'm on day 7 of taking wellbutrin (bupropion) 150  XL and have intolerable nausea half of the day  (unable to work). What is the duration of this side effect?

Just started wellbutrin (bupropion) XL 5 days ago and i'm feeling worse each day. I get headaches, dizziness, nausea, blurred vision. Is this normal? Stop taking?

Just started wellbutrin (bupropion) XL 5 days ago and i'm feeling worse each day. I get headaches, dizziness, nausea, blurred vision. Is this normal? Stop taking?

I have a rule of: Thumb. Treat the headaches with tylenol (acetaminophen) or with alleve, but if they last more that 7 days, they are unlikely to go away in my experience, and i will stop the drug at that point. You should contact your psychiatrist though and not make any changes until you talk to them, unless of course it is absolutely unbearable. You must let them know as soon as you can contact them. All sx's can be from well. ...Read more
