sore throat while taking bupropion HCL
I've been taking bupropion for a few years.  The past two months I have noticed a bit of a sore throat.  Upon examination there is no redness or swelling.  The pain is most evident during swallowing. Could this have anything to do with the medication? and if so:  what does the sore throat symptom indicate?

The bupropion itself should not be causing a problem with your throat, unless you're chewing them rather then taking them with a glass of water.
Additionally, if you've been taking them for several years and haven't had a problem, that's probably not the cause, unless you added a new medication.
If it continues for more than 48 hours, I see a doctor.
In the interim, personally, I would take an anti-inflammatory and drink warm tea with honey.
Hope this is helpful, but without an examination it's going to be difficult to diagnose.
Make that appointment with your doctor.
Hope this helps. Good Luck!

Namaste!
