Customer Question

Do you think there is any possible correlation between Wellbutrin and flat warts. I found when I went off Wellbutrin they went awylay it's almost as if Wellbutrin lowered my immunity. I went back on Wellbutrin and they came back so I am weaning off and they seem to be subsiding again. Strange right

According to the package insert of Wellbutrin there is not correlation to warts, a decreased immune response, or any of the correlations you have witnessed. It is very interesting and it would be interesting to do a study on patients that have flat warts and see if there is a correlation. Wellbutrin can cause increased sweating which may or may not effect the growth of flat warts indirectly. Thanks for sharing. Hopefully this sheds some light on what you experienced.

That is a great question! I believe I may have a different interpretation than the previous responder. There are side effects that show up post-market (after a drug has been studied by the FDA in clinical trials). There are also many side effects that only effect <1% of patients who used the drug. One of them that may be your condition is skin nodules, which are a swelling or outgrowth of skin that shows up as a mass of tissue or cells. This could very well resemble a wart.
