Side Effects of Bupropion Hydrobromide

Common Side Effects

Bupropion hydrobromide was approved based on studies of shorter-acting bupropion medications (Wellbutrin® and Wellbutrin SR®). Therefore, the information on potential side effects that was included in the prescribing information for bupropion hydrobromide was actually taken from studies involving Wellbutrin or Wellbutrin SR (not from studies specifically using bupropion hydrobromide).
 
Based on these studies, the most common bupropion hydrobromide side effects are likely to include:
 
Other common side effects (occurring in 5 to 9 percent of people) included but are not limited to:
 
  • Infections
  • Abdominal pain (stomach pain)
  • General weakness
  • Diarrhea
  • Loss of appetite
  • Muscle pain
  • Sweating
  • Rash
  • Ringing in the ears (tinnitus)
  • Frequent urination.
     

Final Thoughts

You may experience some or none of the bupropion hydrobromide side effects listed in this article. Unfortunately, there is no way for your healthcare provider to know beforehand if you will have side effects from a medicine that you have never tried.
 
Therefore, make sure to let your healthcare provider know if you develop any side effects while taking the drug or if something "just does not seem right." While the issue may not be a side effect, your healthcare provider will be able to diagnose and treat the problem.
