Hi, i haven't discontinued Wellbutrin myself, but after reading patients accounts of withdrawing from this medication, a 25mg - 50mg dose decrease every one or two weeks seems the way to go. You should tailor the dose and time periods to how you feel physically/mentally. If you haven't asked your doctors advice yet, this would really be the best way to go, to stay safe & healthy.
The best SAFE way is to titrate down under the supervision of a medical professional. Incorrect withdrawal from Wellbutrin can have serious consequences, including the onset of seizures that remain for life. Don't try to do something like this using advice from a website, even a good one like this. Please get some help.
Good luck to you.
I stopped taking wellbutrin several times and restarted again over a period of about 15 years. I have since stopped taking it completely. I don't take any other medicine except over the counter melatonin. I HAD NO WITHDRAWAL SYMPTOMS. The only symptoms I had were my symptoms that I took the medicine for in the first place.
