Wellbutrin SR and positive drug test results

I just began Wellbutrin SR. While reading the enclosed medication guide, I was surprised to read it can show positive for amphetamines from a urine drug screening.

Just wanted others to be aware. Below is a quote from the guide.

Quote:
If you take a urine drug screening test, Wellbutrin SR may make the test result positive for amphetamines. If you tell the person giving you the drug screening test that you are taking Wellbutrin SR, they can do a more specific drug screening test that should not have this problem.

Not too bad but I am also coming off Cymbalta. It hasn't made me feel dizzy. It may be just your body getting used to it. How long have you been on it? I wouldn't really judge it too soon unless the dizziness is really troublesome or debilitating. If so, I would contact your Dr. asap.

I am more concerned with Cymbalta withdrawals for me. It's been only 2 days and so far so good. I've weaned off it before and it was really rough but didn't have another anti-D. to fall back on. Hopefully, the Wellbutrin will make withdrawals minimal.

Oh wow!!!! I didn't know this!!! I am a nurse so I can get randomly drug tested and could lose my job over something like this. I work for a large hospital system so hopefully they recognize that someone can test positive for amphetamines on Wellbutrin.

THANK YOU!!!!!
