I just saw your post and had to respond because I've been having similar problems but could find no one who had any idea what I was talking about.

I was started on a combination of wellbutrin and dexedrine (I was already on the wb, we just added the dex) in January of this year. Everything was going well and then in June I was on vacation and suddenly noticed this unbelievable post nasal drip. I felt like I was drowning and it was making me really sick to my stomach. Basically, almost ruined my vacation. I also then developed an intensely painful tongue which would make it hard to eat or talk. I noticed the tastebuds towards the back of my mouth were all inflamed and I had spots all over the sides and underneath that felt like open sores, yet when I looked at it, there was nothing to see. I was also experiencing extremly dry mouth which would then make my throat feel sore and sometimes almost feel kind of restricted. I also found that sometimes I had to work hard at swallowing-not something you normally having to think about.

I tried experimenting with my meds to see what was causing it. I found that when I went off the wellbutrin that it got better. I am now on dexedrine alone and although it never goes completely away, it has cleared up to the point that I can even forget about it for a while.

This has been very frustrating because this all started when I was just starting a new job. I found that I was thinking all day about what I could do to make this go away, was constantly worrying about it and had trouble even conversing with colleagues because my mouth was so dry I could hardly talk.

Well, that's my story. I don't know if it is of much use to you other than to let you know (and me too) that we aren't alone and it helps when you go see your doc and he looks at you like you're a fruitcake to know that there are others out there.
