Dothan, Alabama Residents, Beware: Wellbutrin May Cause Serious Adverse Effects

For over twenty years now, Wellbutrin (generic bupropion) has been a popular and highly effective anti-depressant that is also prescribed for obesity, smoking cessation, ADHD (attention deficit hyperactivity disorder), and sexual dysfunction. Now it has come to light that this drug, and its variations (Wellbutrin XL and Wellbutrin SR), may cause a variety of very serious side effects including:

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


If you have taken Wellbutrin and have suffered any of these side effects, you may be entitled to financial compensation. The product liability attorneys at The Cochran Firm’s Dothan, Alabama office are now accepting Wellbutrin cases. Product liability claims are often complex and require expert knowledge of product liability law in the state in which you live. The attorneys at The Cochran Firm have both the knowledge and resources necessary to fight these difficult cases.

When we take a prescribed drug, we would like to think that it is safe and will achieve its intended purpose. Unfortunately, however, this is not always the case. The problem with defective or dangerous drugs is that their side effects can be deadly, and the side effects may not surface for years after beginning taking the drug.
If you or a loved one has suffered ill effects as a result of taking Wellbutrin or any other drug, please contact the Dothan, Alabama office of The Cochran Firm today to schedule a confidential, no-obligation consultation. We work on a contingency basis, which means we do not get paid unless you receive a settlement. We will work tirelessly to hold accountable anyone who caused you undue pain and suffering.
