Wellbutrin Joint pain

Do doctors stop Wellbutrin due to joint pain? I have been on this medication for 5 days & started to have joint pain and tremors today. Will these side affects go away? the medication has been helping but am having this joint pain/muscle pain and tremors. Thanks

Dear breakingfree2013:

It is possible that bupropion (Wellbutrin) may cause your symptoms of tremors and joint pain. Please contact your provider and pharmacist to report the adverse effects and have them confirm by conducting a complete medication review, including prescription, over-the-counter, and any dietary and herbal supplements.

Some of the common side effects of bupropion are headaches (26%, compare to 23% of placebo), dry mouth (17%, compare to 7% of placebo), insomnia (11%, compare to 6% of placebo). Tremor is about 6% (compare to 1% of placebo) and arthralgia, or muscle pain, is about 1% (same as placebo).

There may be a moderate drug interaction between atenolol and bupropion due to their effect on blood pressure. It is a good idea for you to monitor your blood pressure, especially with your medical history of postural orthostatic condition.

For more information, please go to:
1. Bupropion - Medline Plus

2. Wellbutrin XL (bupropion HCl) tablet, extended release - Daily Med

be careful with wellbutrin, it can have some nasty effects on the human body. I know because I took it and ended up in the psychiatric ward of the hospital. and at the time I was a law-enforcement officer and had previously passed psych tests, it makes anxiety worse and can cause mini-epileptic siezures like it did me
