Stopping wellbutrin won't increase your chance of seizure, but your alcohol consumption needs to stop. You have had 2 seizures and they are likely from the combination of alcohol and wellbutrin.
Perhaps a different medication to substitute for the wellbutrin is warranted now, but as long as you are drinking, the risk of seizure is very high.
Only in the most severe cases, when someone stops breathing for a prolonged period of time during a seizure, is brain damage a possibility. More likely, brain damage can happen from head trauma suffered during the seizure.
Good luck and please click ACCEPT if this information was helpful.
Taking wellbutrin can make seizures more likely. Conversely, stopping wellbutrin actually decreases your chance of seizure in the future. However, you may get relapse of your depression and should pursue other forms of antidepressants in the future.
