If you read the prescibing info on the manufacturer's web site you will find a paragraph that says Wellbutrin can cause/exacerbate psychosis.

Personally, I only know one person who has used Wellbutrin to treat the depression component of depression with psychotic features. When used alone, the Wellbutrin caused a dramatic worsenning of the psychosis (paranoid delusions). When an anti-psychotic (Risperdal) was added to the 300mg of Wellbutrin, however, the psychosis completely disappeared. While this is only one case, it does suggest that caution may be warranted in using Wellbutrin without an AP if there is a history of psychosis.


PS Has anyone else seen "A Beautiful Mind"? Great film!
