ELP814 (2 years ago):

I am a 28 year old female with a sulfa allergy. I recently was switched from Effexor Xr to Wellbutrin xl. I did fine on the half dosage during the transition process but I have been on the full 300mg dose for 2 days and I'm super itchy and seem to be breaking out in mild hives. I haven't changed anything else, used anything strange or eaten anything out of the norm. Could I be allergic to something in the Wellbutrin?
