Resolved Question:

I've already asked the question but here it is again. What is the best way to tape off of Wellbutrin XL 300? Ive been taking it for 4 years and my therapist and I are both in agreement about the transition. I heard it was done over a period of two weeks. Please let me know. Thanks.

Since you were on it for 4 years; a tapering of 50-100 mg per week (so 3-6 week duration) is advised.


Please feel free for your follow up questions.

Ok - so how do you recommend tapering more specifically? 300 1 week! 250 the next? And so on? Will I feel bad side effects?
Expert:  Dr. Arun Phophalia replied 8 years ago.



Yes, that are the recommendations; 250, 200, 150 and so on. Majority do not have any major side effects and have smooth tapering.


It is pleasure and privilege assisting you.
