i am currently starting wellbutrin and am about on my 6th day i have not experienced any of that. to me it sounds bad but again i am not a doctor
I have been taking Wellbutrin 300 mg for about 2 1/2 years. I've had vision problems starting about a year ago. I've been to the eye doctor and I'm neither far sighted nor am I near sighted. I just found out today that wellbutrin has blurred vision as a side affect. Which is really bad because i play sports i had a rough year trying to figure this vision thing out, so I'm going to have to find an alternative anti-depressant.
I have an eye condition called Ocular Histoplasmosis (similar to macular degeneration). I took wellbutrin for about a week to quit smoking. Then my unaffected eye started to develop a blind spot. THEN I found out that Wellbutrin is a vein-growth promoter (similar to tylenol).
So, I urge anyone w/a similar disease to stay away from this drug. And my doctor was clueless. I found out about it on a website devoted to my particular weird disease.
I was on Wellbutrin XL 300MG for 3 weeks and about 1 week into being on it, I got blurry vision, terrible headaches, and a clogged right ear. My doctor said those are possible side effects of the wellbutrin and they should go away. It only go worse and now I have double vision. That started in about the second week being on it and after enduring it for a week, called my doctor and told him I was not going to take it anymore.It has now been a week and a half off of it and It hasn't gotten any better. I can't drive or go to work. Everyone around me seems to think I am exaggerating and should suck it up and go about a normal life. I am so frustrated by this and my doctors nonchalant attitude about it. Has anyone else experienced anything like this? How long did it last once you stopped taking the Wellbutrin?
I am having this same problem. Were you able to get rid of the double vision after stopping the Wellbutrin? If so, how long did it take? Thank you!
I have the same exact problems with moderate to severe chronic headaches, clogged/stuffy ears where I can't hear well, but my vision has not been affected. I think I may go off this medication as I have been on it for a little over 2 years and I have been to ENT's who say there is absolutely nothing wrong with my ears and a Neurologist who put me on Topamax which increased by severe migraine pain tenfold...could not move or get out of bed for 2-3 days. I am off Topamax for 5 months now and I thought it may fix my ears but it hasn't.
How are you doing now? Are your ears still clogged and do you still have headaches? I hope not! All the Best.
