... my Lamictal but I don't know if I have to do the same thing with Wellbutrin. I have stage 3 renal disease so I have to quit taking both the Wellbutrin and the Abilify. Please help
No, Wellbutrin is an antidepressant and should not be stopped abruptly or you may experience discontinuation symptoms. Your prescribing doctor should give you a tapering dosage schedule to follow for a couple of weeks.

I would ask the doctor. My doctor has me on two also. He said they work in different ways. Hang in there.
