Well, I am down to 100 SR once a day and I still get chest pains. Will I get used to this medicine, or will I always get chest pains at any dose? It is impossible to go any lower. If they never go away at a given dose then I will not be able to use this medicine.

I do not get any other negative side effects from Wellbutrin, I guess because Klonopin is masking them, so it seems the perfect drug except for these damned chest pains!

Since I reduced dosage by the way I have developed intermittent diarrhea.


> The chest pain issue with Wellbutrin is clearly dose-related, and some acclimate to certain doses better that others do. I am fine at 150 SR bid, however when Pdoc tried to push me to 300, then back to 200 bid, I had the bad chest pains. When I went back to the 150, all was well. I guess he could pop in a small dose of IR between my SR doses, but the threshold between medical efficacy and untoward effects is very narrow with Wellbutrin. SalArmy4me posted some excellent references on that subject by a doc who participated in the development of the med back in the late 70's! I like Wellbutrin as a AD, however it does have its problems (speedy-puppy and the no-sleep poopies). It is a good mood lifter.
