my 300 mg pill at Noon and I just took another 300 mg now at about 5 pm. I have heard that bupropion can cause seizures if taken in high doses. Should I call my doctor and tell him that I took 2 doses in the same day?
I would because you are right, more then 300 mg can cause seizures. Why not get yourself a weekly pill box so you know if you took them or not. Then things like this won't happen. Walmart has them for $1
I recommend you contact your physician or go to the ER right away due to the fairly high incidence of hallucinations, seizures and other Neuro problems at high dosage. Overdose of Buproprion can be quite serious, with seizures occurring as late as 24-36 hours after the medication error. There is no antidote that I'm aware of but you may need to be closely monitored for your safety. Good luck to you. Let us know you're ok. Like Kai's MaMa said, invest in a med box or a tracking system to avoid this type of scare in the future!
