Joyce; Yes please listen to Wildcatvet and follow her directions, She knows what she is talking about sometimes the doctor can add something to help and others very slowly take away the bupropion and add something later. to get you feeling better and not have to go through any type of withdrawals or very minor anyway. So you should call your doctor as soon as possible and get yourself checked out. good luck and there are
Hi, Joyce! Speak with your prescribing physician who can provide you with a customized schedule to wean you off. This will be a decreasing dose schedule and may take several weeks but it will avoid any symptoms of discontinuation syndrome which is common with antidepressants if you stop *cold turkey* or too quickly.
Slow but sure is the only way to go.
Best regards and best of luck to you.
