Roxy, bupropion toxicity in dogs can cause: Tremors, vocalization, agitation, seizures, etc. Unfortunately we are very limited as to what you can do at home. I would recommend you move quickly and take her immediately to the nearest veterinarian so they can induce vomiting and start her on activated charcoal. It is important for this to be done quickly before the tablet is absorbed into the body.
It can take several hours before symptoms develop. If no symptoms after 12 hours then unlikely for symptoms to develop.
