Have Mental Health Questions? Ask a Psychiatrist Online
Welcome to Just answer !
I am sorry to learn about your condition and I empathize with you.
Well yes rash is a common side effect of wellbutrin , so you have so far done right thing to stop the drug completely.
Kindly answer a few queries.
1) How many doses of wellbutrin have you taken before the rash developed ?
2) Since how many days have you been taking wellbutrin and is it wellbutrin xl or wellbutrin plain and at what dose ?
3) How much time has elapsed since you have developed rash ?
4) Is there any other drug that you are currently taking along with the wellbutrin?
I will get back to you once you reply to my queries.
Thanks for the inputs.
Well this is indeed an adverse reaction of wellbutrin xl and since it is not being controlled by use of anti histaminic agent like Benadryl and also by the application of calamine location , this suggests that the reaction is too severe to be managed at home and so I will humbly suggest you not to waste any more time trying medications on your own and rush to emergency to get yourself physically examined and treated under expert supervision as we still not are aware of the extent to which this reaction can unfold because the drug wellbutrin xl which has been taken for 10 days duration will take some time to wash out completely from your system and until that happens you have to endure the rash.
So it becomes imperative to seek an emergency evaluation for now to get supervised treatment , more so when your primary doctor is not approachable and certainly I will not like you to take any risk here.
I hope this helps.
Wish you all the best and speedy recovery.
