I feel better and am not in a panic. Thanks for the feedback! It seems that the edema was from the Wellbutrin. I stopped taking it 24 hours ago, and ALL of my skin feels better. I feel a bit of nausea and headache, but I assume that as I felt that going on to Wellbutrin, I'll feel it going off. Anyway, I'm waiting to find out. I'm going on a weekend trip, and it seems that I'll have no AD's. This will be the first AD-free time in 3 years. My legs are already much better, and I can bend my fingers, toes, and ankles freely. The bright redness all over me is gone [I'd really not noticed I was that flushed]. Wow! I decided to let my doctor unbaffle himself and go for the information here and on the drug site. He didn't offer me a referral [and as my PCP, he's the boss of that], so I had to decide if going off Wellbutrin was as risky as Effexor. So far, all is good. I'm a little worried that three days from now I won't feel that way. It was on day three off of Effexor that the 2 week withdrawal nightmare began. I hope never to feel like that again. I was quite panicked by the time I decided not to continue Wellbutrin, and I really didn't want that to be the problem. The Lotensin is for losing water weight. My doc thought the swelling was because of my Effexor weight gain. He lectured me on not exercising enough. While I agree I must do more of that, I'm glad that this relief was quicker. I hope it continues. This board has once again helped me through a crisis! Thanks. I am learning what I see written here so many times -- to listen to my body.
