If you check the prescribing information for Wellbutrin you will see a paragraph indicating that Wellbutrin can cause or exacerbate psychosis. (This happens because Wellbutrin raises dopamine levels in the brain.) My wife suffers from a psychotic disorder and Wellbutrin makes the paranoia much worse if she takes it without an anti-psychotic.

I'm not a psychiatrist, but what you are describing sounds a lot like a mild case of paranoid delusions, jealous type. You might want to talk to your psychiatrist about this.

BTW, has Wellbutrin reduced your appetite? I know I feel more suspicious/paranoid if I miss a meal or two!


> I have been on Wellbutrin SR 150/daily and Concerta 36 mg/daily for about a year now to help with Adult ADD.
> The past few months I've noticed a strange shift in my mental stability. I've become insecure and neurotic. I'm not thinking clearly and do "strange" things. (i.e., trying to log into my wife's work email to read what she doing that I don't know about. Checking her cell phone call logs, etc...)
> I had an insecure feeling that she was flirting with someone at her work. We've been married for over 10 years and I know she loves me. She has never cheated on me, so my I have no reason to think she would now.
> I just "lost it" for a few days and got caught checking her email and snooping on her.
> Now I've injured the trust-relationship we have.
> I don't know what's wrong with me? I look back on it now and think "That was really STUPID. I know better than that!" I didn't take the time to think through all the possibilities before acting.
> I have always been a very strong and confident person, in life and in our relationship.
> What's going on? Can these medications affect me like this? Why have they worked okay for 10 months then suddenly make me "wig-out"?
> HELP!!
