Anyone get flu-like symptoms?

ever since my doc put me from 300mg to 600mg, for the last 2 weeks i've had the worst phlem (i think that is what it is called) in my lungs and very stuffy nose. Then I stopped 600mg and went to 300mg the 2nd week and it is still there.

Anyone else feel like they have the flu with wellbutrin?

Re: Anyone get flu-like symptoms?

600mg? Isn't the upper safety-threshold set at 450mg? Your Dr is taking a huge risk by prescribing you medications above the safety limit as he or she will be the one held responsible if you do end up having a seizure (have you had epilepsy-testing done?).

I have once or twice taken 600mg by accident (forgetting that I took the first dose), and only felt great. No flu-like symptoms at all, but did find some other people showing similar symptoms when taking higher than average doses.

Re: Anyone get flu-like symptoms?

I know this an old thread but i didn't want to open a new thread.
I had been prescribed wellbutrin before. I hadn't felt any flulike symtom then.
The day before yesterday i restarted and took 150 mg. Yesterday i took also 150 mg.
Yesterday and today i have a mild sore throat, sweating, nausea and dry mouth. Today i didn't took wellbutrin. I think these are side effects of wellbutrin but i'm not sure. I'm worried of corona virus.
