Like any other heavy duty drugs, these also need to be used very cautiously. Zyban and Wellbutin if used in combination with certain drugs may result in drug interaction causing disastrous results for the patient. Even though there have not been many studies in the area of effects of Zyban and Wellbutin on pregnant women, it is believed that these may have similar effects as any other antidepressant.
However, Zyban may be present in breast milk as well. Zyban has been found to have many allergic responses in people. Prolonged intake may cause issues such as difficulty breathing, swelling of one’s face.
If one starts experiencing extreme side effects such as seizures, elevated heart beats, joint pain, hallucinations, etc., they should of course contact a doctor immediately. Less serious known side effects may include dry mouth, nausea, stomach pain, headache, dizziness, sore throat, muscle pain, etc.
If a woman was pregnant and took Wellbutrin or Zyban, in addition to other possible side effects, the baby may have been exposed to the drug in utero. We are investigating claims of congenital heart defects, like a hole in the heart, and other heart problems in babies exposed to Wellbutrin or Zyban.
