Hello, you should not stop the wellbutrin abruptly. This can cause a withdrawal syndrome which can make you feel worse.

Some of your symptoms can be helped in the short term with some other medication. Have you talked to your doctor about how you feel?


How long have you been on the wellbutrin? What dose do you take?
