Dog ate bupropion but vommited it, will she be okay or should I take her to the vet

You're speaking to Dr. Michael Salkin. Welcome to JustAnswer. I'm currently typing up my reply. Please be patient. This may take a few minutes.

Thankfully, Cuddles has self-decontaminated and there should be no need for a vet visit. How much does Cuddles weigh and how many mg of buproprion were in that pill, please?

Customer: replied 23 days ago.
she is about 50 pounds. 150 mg buproprion

Sedation and lethargy can be seen at 5 mg/lb. She ingested just 150 mg/50 lbs = 3 mg/lb. Cuddles is likely to remain unaffected. There's no need for further treatment. Please continue our conversation if you wish.
