Birmingham, Alabama Residents Should Know Danger Associated with Wellbutrin

We like to think the medications our doctors prescribe for us are safe and will serve their intended purpose. In most cases, prescription drugs do their job and do not cause any adverse side effects. However, there are those instances that a drug will make its way to the consumer and cause serious side effects and even death. Wellbutrin (generic bupropion) is manufactured by drug giant, GlaxoSmithKline, and has been on the market since 1985. Wellbutrin is an anti-depressant but is also prescribed for ADHD, sexual dysfunction, obesity, and smoking cessation. Wellbutrin may be a dangerous drug, and if you’re taking this drug, you may want to ask your doctor about its safety.

Since the Food and Drug Administration approved Wellbutrin, it has also approved variations of the drug including Wellbutrin XL and Wellbutrin SR. It has now been discovered that Wellbutrin has been known to cause serious side effects including:

  • Depression
  • Psychological disturbances
  • Mania
  • Memory problems
  • Changes in personality
  • Psychosis
  • Severe allergic reactions
  • Seizures
  • Suicidal thoughts and behaviors
