I don't know if this is the right board for a question like t his...but I figure I'll give it a shot.
I have been taking Wellbutrin for the past 6 almost 7 months now...it was only to help get me off of this other drug I was addicted to and abusing...Dexedrine...and it helped alot and was told I should be on it for at least 6 months. I also was able to quit smoking.
Now, I want to get off it. I'm feeling more agitated towards everything, more mood swings, and can't get alot of sleep. It's also tiring on my bank account...I do get the money back from medical...but it's just a hassle I don't want to deal with anymore.
I was told at the beginning, that this anti-depressant has really bad withdrawl side effects.
So my question is....has anyone taken Wellbutrin and gone off it? Would it be a bad idea to just not tell my doctor, and try to get off it myself?
I hear bad stories of people going off their drugs...they either go bacj to their old ways...or get worse. I really don't want that to happen, but I just want to get off it for the sake of my relationships with family and my boyfriend.
