    I took Zyban (to quit smoking) for awhile and did not have those side effects I was however very emotional and very sad. and my cousin was on it for depression and tried to commit suicide. I've never heard of those side effects but I'm sure there could be other emotional side effects. Drugs effect people differently so if you think this may be a side effects talk to your doctor and ask him to try something else.


    don't stop taking it on your own. contact your doctor ASAP. if you can't get a hold of your doctor and you are not able to cope tonight call go to the ER a doctor there will help you.

    You must speak to the MD. who prescribed the med. now as an emergency!!!...or call local ER or 911.

    Some side effects that need emergency medical attention are: hallucinations, nervousness, seeing, hearing or feeling things that are not there, unconsciousness, convulsions (seizures), fast heartbeat, restlessness.

    I've taken Wellbutrin for years with absolutely none of the side effects you've mentioned. Have you called your doctor's office with this information? They need to know this, so they canhelp you decide what to do.
