    Seizures with Wellbutrin are VERY RARE. They have to say that as a possibility for legal reasons. If you have ever had an eating disorder or seizure disorder, wellbutrin isn't for you. Get a full blood workup before starting it. Make sure to discuss your concerns with your doctor.
    ALL antidepressants can in some cases worsen depression, and cause suicidal thoughts. Mine make my depression worse. But wellbutrin is supposed to be on of the safer ones as far as that is concerned. If you depression gets worse or you have suicidal thoughts, call your Dr. immediately and make sure you let him/her know you think it may be the antidepressant, because lost of Dr's think antidepressants are totally safe. YOUR HEALTH, all in all, is in your hands and you must do what is right for you.

    I don't want to encourage you to overdose, but my psych and I had our doses crossed when I started Wellbutrin. I was double-dosing and I didn't feel a thing.

    Of course, medications have a hard time working on me, normally.

    Take care, and be careful of your doses! xpax
