low platelet count using wellbutrin sr

Hi, I have been using wellbutrin sr 1n the dosage of 200 to 250 mg daily for about 9 months.2 week ago my blodd test showed very low platelet count 10-15, Could this be related to the use of wellbutrin. Please give your comments. Thanks ## Hi, Sahmed! How are you? And yes, from some studies I've found doing a search, Bupropion, which is the active ingredient in Wellbutrin, as well as several other antidepressant class medications can cause changes in the platelet count in some people that take them. Bupropion is not as prone to causing it as the others, but it did do so in some test subjects. Have you consulted your doctor about it? You may need to try a different medication.

I was on 300mg/daily for 2 1/2 years for nerve pain. Bad s--- for sure. See if you can get some L-Tryptophan and some 5-HPT to ease the discontinuation. Remember, ALL SSRI's are harmful, they alter the neuro pathways of the brain, sometimes irreversibly. God be with you, Love and Light, Brad ## my husband was put on gabapentin 300mg for neuropathic pain. The change in his personality was terrifying, A normally rather placid happy go lucky guy turned into a raging bull. He put his fist right throu our bathroom wall and didnt even realise he had done it. He walked into my next door neighbours house and threatened to...

tingling and numbness

On 50 mg Pritiq w/ few side effects, then PDoc added 100 Wellbutrin SR/day for 1 week, the 2x100/day after first week. Having serious vivid dreams, but especiall thingling and numbness in feet, lower legs, both forearms, and face. Anyone had similar? ## The problem could be caused by the combination of the two medications. Wellbutrin contains the active ingredient Buproprion and Pristiq contains Desvelafaxine and combining the two is known to increase the amount of the Buproprion metabolites in your body, so the dosage may be too high for you. Have you contacted your doctor about this problem, yet?
