  • erin on Apr, 8, 2011:

    I was on wellbutrin when I was 17, and I developed Erythema Nodosum on my shins. They went away when I switched to a dye-free pill. Is it possible that it was the blue dye in the pill that was causing the problems? I just thought I would share since I noticed that the majority of patients who suffered this side effect were in their 50's.
