How do I wean myself off Wellbutrin XL?
I've been taking 450 mg of Wellbutrin XL for a few months now and I feel that it's pretty useless. Before this I took Wellbutrin SR and I got a big reaction off that, but apparently it was mania so I was switched to XL which does nothing for me.
A month ago my doctor randomly prescribed me so tricyclide (sp?) antidepressant...I didn't even know he prescribed it to me till I went home and looked at the prescription paper for refilling my Wellbutrin. He didn't even tell me why he was prescribing it or that he was prescribing it period. So I didn't take it. In the next appointment I told him this and he got mad and basically said I have to take whatever he prescribes me, no questions asked. So it was no surprise when he refused to tell me how to wean myself off the Wellbutrin and instead prescribed some random tranquilizer which "just came on the market"...and he was probably bribed to prescribe it. And this was after I told him that I'm constantly fatigued. I actually took it for 2 days...to disastrous results (again, no surprise). I couldn't even get out of bed for half the day.
So anyway, if anyone knows how to properly wean yourself off 450 mg of Wellbutrin XL, please tell me as I have no other way of finding out. I'm 19, 5'8, and 140 lbs. in case that's relevant.
