I drank a couple beers while taking Wellbutrin for about a month and went from fully feeling its effects to not feeling them at all. I read that alcohol may permanently damage the receptors that Wellbutrin is trying to attach to so does this mean it will never work again? It's been two weeks now and I still don't feel any different from when I drank. Will I have to switch medications or should I keep waiting until it starts to work again? I'm taking 450 mg once a day.
It might be more of a cognitive thing. As in alcohol has put you in a “downward spiral” and you’re just stuck in it. Drinking a couple beers isn’t going to permanently negate your Wellbutrin. But you’re very susceptible to changes made by the alcohol because you naturally lean toward depression. It’s easier to maintain a euthymic mood then get out of a bad one. Give it a month and then call your doctor.
