Hi,

I am sorry Winston is causing mischief for you, but I am sure he will be fine.

I have a had a look at the pharmacological activity and ingredients of Wellbutrin and am confident he will be OK.

With most unexpected drug/food ingestions we can expect mild irritation of the gastrointestinal tract, so he may well have an upset tummy. As it is quite recent that he ate the tablet, you could try feeding him some soaked bread as this may bind to the tablet and allow it to pass through reducing the amount of it that is digested.

I don't expect you to see any specific advert effects with the specific medication.

However, all animals are individuals and can react in unique ways or unexpected ways, so if at any point you feel he is quiet, lethargic, is persistently vomiting or has very profuse diarrhoea then get him checked over.

I hope you manage to get some sleep and am sure Winston will be just fine.

Kind Regards

Dr Dan
