Getting off Wellbutrin

Posted by peggygris @peggygris, Apr 26, 2017

I have been on Wellbutrin for depression 20 years. It is no longer working. How do I go about stopping it with the least amount of withdrawal or side effects?

Hello @peggygris, and welcome to Connect. We are happy that you made your way to Connect. We have a very supportive community of members, many of which have discussed taking wellbutrin, some with success and others with some side effects. Here on Connect, we are not able to give medical advice and always advise working closely with your medical provider when tapering medications.

Before I bring in a few members with experience with wellbutrin, would you mind sharing a bit more about your situation? Have you discussed your medications ineffectiveness with your provider? Has he or she recommended that you taper off the medication and try another medication?


I RECENTLY started on Wellbutin – it really gets me accomplishing chores. What positive effects did u used to have?
