Exclamation Does Bupropion cause Miniature seizures?

I have been suffering from depression for about 6 months and was recently switched from Prozac(20mg) to Wellbutrin(75mg) and have been experiencing what i call mini seizures
-Tingling in fingers and toes
-momentary loss of consciousness
-Duration 10-60 seconds

I want to know if this will effect school or maybe lead to a grand mal O.O
Please Help!!!!

Re: Does Bupropion cause Miniature seizures?


I think Bupropion can cause seizures but the risk is very minimal unless you have a history of seizures prior to taking Bupropion. 75mg is a fairly low for Bupropion. I'm taking 150mg and in the past I've taken up to 300mg of Bupropion.

If you haven't already, I suggest talking to your doctor to find out whether it's the Bupropion or something else entirely that's causing these symptoms.
