It may be upsetting that the medication you are taking to ditch your depression is giving you insomnia. Though many people find Wellbutrin (bupropion) an effective remedy, they are also aware of its downsides.
Generally, bupropion’s side effects are mild to moderate and easy to manage. They may last 1-2 weeks and fade once your body gets used to the medication. And some of the effects can be eased with simple strategies and home remedies (for example, you can avoid drinking coffee before going to bed if you have sleep problems or take ibuprofen or acetaminophen if you get a headache).
But AddictionResource authors say that you should call your healthcare provider right away if you have severe symptoms (buzzing or ringing in the ears, severe headache, skin rash, confusion, trouble concentrating, mood or behavior changes, stomach pain, tremors or uncontrollable shaking, excessive sweating, etc.).
