Not a good idea to stop the Wellbutrin abruptly from 150mg. Best to taper off slowly over time. I suggest you speak to your doctor about a taper plan to follow using immediate release 75mg tablets. Effexor shouldn't make you sleepy. More likely the depression causing this problem. Might want to consider increasing the Wellbutrin xr to 300mgs or try a different antidepressant altogether. I recommend Pristiq, it is similar to Effexor but with less side effects.
