Common Bupropion side effects include dry mouth, nausea, insomnia,
tremor, excessive sweating and tinnitus (ringing noise or other type
of sound in the ear). In some individuals, the agitation or insomnia
is most marked shortly after starting therapy.
Some Bupropion patients may experience weight loss. Uncommonly, some
may experience manic episodes or hallucinations. Additional possible
side effects include rashes and nausea. It is said that the development
of mild to moderate skin rashes is associated with sensitivity to
dye components within the pill coating. This can often be alleviated

If you're taking Bupropion, get emergency medical help if you have
any of these signs of an allergic reaction - hives; difficulty breathing;

using Bupropion and call your doctor immediately if you have a seizure
(convulsions) or fast, uneven heartbeats.
It is important to note that side effects other than those listed
