Dr took me off Bupropion XL, put me on regular Bupropion, 100mg, not XL or SL. Dr had me cut it in half so dr wants me taking 50 mg in am and 50 mg at noon. I’m feeling symptoms of depression and I feel “spacey”, it almost feels like my eyes are going up in my head and I can really only explain it as feeling DUH. Dr has already told me she won’t prescribe my anxiety medication either so I’m going to have to withdraw from that too. I’m really feeling scared and don’t know what to do. I’m going down into depression quick and the anxiety will be bad when she takes me off clonazepam that I take for anxiety. So I won’t have anything for depression or anxiety. I’m a wreck already.
Dr took me off Bupropion 150mg XL?

You can’t just keep taking meds away from someone without it having a negative impact on someone. She wants me off Wellbutrin because she says it’s increasing my anxiety. I’ve been on benzodiazepines for many years and have been tapered off many and it’s had a very bad impacted on my cardiac issuesAdded 19 Dec 2020:
Instead of helping me she’s hurting me. I’ve already been told by my cardiologist that my heart can’t take much more and I already have issues with my heart because of my medications being messed with so many times. I’ve tried so many things for anxiety and depression that don’t work for me. There’s really not much more I can try. I do have a strong history with working in the medical field and working with medications and now I can’t work because of all the damage that’s been done. I also have C-PTSD.
Do you know why she’s taking you off bupropion? Did bupropion help to improve your symptoms?
She probably took you off clonazepam because benzodiazepines should be taken short term. Some may take it long term if they really need it. Most importantly, I suggest you to discuss with your doctor about your symptoms. You should not live like this. At least convince her to put you on a different antidepressant their are many options out there. Your health matters.
