I’ve struggled with neurological issues for the past year and was told by 8 neurologists that I was suffering from anxiety and needed psychiatric help and anti-anxiety medication. My stuttering, palsy, stumbling, fatigue, and the pins and needles in my fingers and toes were all the result of Wellbutrin, aka bupropion. Once I was weaned off Wellbutrin, my symptoms disappeared.
