my insurance is changing and wellbutrin isn't covered what is the best way to taper off of this med? thank you.
Hi, i agree. There are several alternatives to Wellbutrin, so speak with your doctor or psychiatrist about which one(s) may be best for your condition. If you start a new antidepressant, the tapering process with the Wellbutrin will be much easier and you shouldn't experience too many withdrawal symptoms.
I agree with both the previous gals. When it come to tapering off a anti- depressant especially, it has to be slow, well thought out and methodical planned. When I came off my Effexor my doctor had it all written out ahead of time. My doctor had a six month schedule of the doses/milligrams I would need.
I too would look to see if your insurance would pay for, the generic before you go through all this work. Good luck, best pup.
