Follow up: Extreme edema,...Wellbutrin?

Thanks for the responses! I hate to say that
I saw my p-doc yesterday, and he seemed baffled
by the edema. He gave me Lotensin HTC. After 24
hours, there's still no relief from the swelling.
I got really scared last night. I just wanted
to know why this is happening. I'm not really
jokingwhen I say it looks like Elephantitus. Could
this really be an allergic reaction? I'm so sad.
I've really liked the way Wellbutrin got me out of
the proverbial Effexor slumber. Of course, the edema
did begin when I started Wellbutrin. I wonder
why my p-doc doesn't know about this? He was shocked
at the list of 20 horrendous Effexor withdrawal
symptoms I gave him. Maybe I should seek another
doc. Too bad, I thought this PCP was the
right one for a change. I'm being completely honest
when I say that it was this board that got me
through the Effexor withdrawal. I read it often.
I'm off Effexor for 18 days now. Thank you for that!
And I hope to find answers about this edema. If
it weren't so nightmarishly bad, I'd say it was
worth it. I've got the Effexor weight, a lot of it, to
lose, so I'll have to take it all in. Which is
worse? Much thanks, Maureen
