I was recently taken of medication WELLBUTRIN after being on it for approximately seven years. Approximately one month after this discontinuance I began experiencing signs of psyrosis and red bumps on various parts of my body. I have read that sometimes this breakout is due to nerve problems. Some of the breakouts are on my lower arm and look similar to breakouts I had with shingles. I am planning to see dermatologist however, I am questioning if maybe I should return to Wellbutrin. I was caretaker for husband who had stroke and was very ill. He passed in 2009 and I am not sure if I should return to the doctor who was treating me for stress. Thought I would get opinion before I decide. The breakouts are not only large blisters, but large amount on face and neck are skin tags which are very irritable! D. XXXXXXX
