From this study (3 days ago):
I have been taking generic Wellbutrin XL 450mg/day for years. Recently, after a depressive episode and a hospital stay, they added Lexapro 10 mg/day. I recently started a factory job where Isopropyl Alcohol is used for cleaning. After 7 hours of cleaning, which included breathing the vapors and ingestion through the skin, my breathing has become very labored. Should I continue to work in a situation where Isopropyl Alcohol is used while remaining on these meds?
