I have just started Wellbutrin 150mg 5 days ago and have been told to increase dose to 300mg from day 7. Today my feet, ankles and legs have swollen quite badly. I have noticed since day 1 that my anxiety has been worse but I'm hoping that will pass but the swelling part is getting me down as I'm already overweight and this is making me feel worse. Has anyone else had this effect with it and if so has it passed?

I tried Wellbutrin before and did not have those side affects.. maybe talk to your doctor. The only side affect I found with it was it worsened my insomnia.

I am currently taking wellbutrin. I can't speak to the swelling, but my anxiety definitely got worse very quickly. I take cymbalta (and xanax) to even out the anxious feelings. Definitely talk to your doc!
Best of luck :)
