I want to stop taking wellbutrin.....

I have been taking 150 mg xl / daily for about a month. I am not particularly excited with it. I think it just makes me feel mello - neutral - emotionless.
What would be the best and safest way to stop taking it? One of the main reasons for giving it a try was not to gain weight with antidepressants.

I was taking prozac before wellbutrin and I still have lots of it, and I want to go back to that, but should I wait for a certain period before I start it back. My dr. isn't available for 2 weeks and I dn't want to wait.

Re: I want to stop taking wellbutrin.....

Does anyone know if it works best to maybe alternate wellbutrin one day and prozac the next??? I was wondering if this would make me a little more happier and easy going than just wellbutrin??

I was on it for years and went off, but had to be weaned off of it. I think I cut it in half or something, but I don't remember now. Did you like how the Prozac made you feel the last time? Can you just call the doctor's office and ask someone there? Maybe there will be a nurse there that can tell you.
