I have been on Wellbutrin for 8 weeks . I have started noticing my heart doing a few fast beats , then regular, then this happens for about ten minutes and usually goes away. Last night I was laying in bed watching Olympics , no anxiety, and I kept feeling something, felt like bubbles in heart then one beat every once in a while was hard. So I felt pulse on neck and closed eyes to pay attention. It would beat regular six times then stop and nothing felt where I was feeling pulse on neck but I could feel a small beat inside at back of heart. Then a hard one would come where I was felling on neck. This kept repeating for an hour. I got up and chewed an aspirin because it scared me. It not normal. I am 56

Im 26. Male. Overall good health and size. Only rx is generic wellbutrin started 4 months ago. Over the last 4 weeks i have noticed about once or twice per week, after a bowel movement i expell semen instead of urine. No pain or discomfort. No unusual odor or color. Normal amount compared to sexual activity. There is no stimulation or. arousal before, during, or after. My sex drive has dramatically decreased over the past 2 months as well. Although this isnt a concern, it may be helpful in determining the cause of the ejaculate coming out.
