... found anything. Either people have done it and had a siezure or it's all about not starting. I have been on wellbutrin since 1996. I wasn't drinking when I started but now I drink at least 6 beers a day. I only drink beer. How do I wean myself off alcohol while staying on the wellbutrin. I have stopped drinking for up to 2 weeks and/or several days with no problem. But the more I read about the more scared I get. I will talk to my doctor about it but I was wondering if anyone else has been through this?
Do you mind if I ask why you started when you were on an antidepressant? The only thing you can do is cut back until you're stopped, since you get so scared with just stopping. People that seizure are drinking allot, then suddenly stop, its part of DTs. It has nothing to do with meds that are taken at the time. They also occur in the first week of detox. Being scared that it will happen to you is really hindering your attempts. The dr can give you something to take when you get anxious like that while you're trying to stop.
