Re: lupus and welbutrin xl
I've just been diagnosed with discoid lupus and SLE. I've had skin problems that flaired up quite severly about a year ago and was misdiagnosed for some time until my hair started falling out. Went to specialist at the University of Virginia had biopsy of scalp lesion resulting in positive findings. Started me on plaqeneil for about a week and trying to get a grasp on this and the lifestyle changes coming my way.
I'm interested in the DIL as I am on tegretol (seizures) but have been for 27 years; however about a year ago was put on welbutrin which I am now wondering if this could be related???
I did ask doctor about tegretol, as that is one drug listed, which they felt probally wasn't. However, I'm on such a low dose that I'm stopping it to see if I see any benefit. I do feel seizures coming on and my seizure activity has been minimal at best (1 in past several years).
I am really interested in the welbutrin aspect....anyone have any comments?
I'm so concerned about hair loss to, I see many different answers and responses about this coming back.
