> I am a serious drug addict. I am also a serious mental case (probably because of all the drugs I have taken in the past)
> Last night I threw away a whole bottel of Welbutrin which I was taking 350 mgs a day 2xs a day. Am I going to go thru withdrawl from this? I dont care...I have to get off all drugs because they just make me want to take more and more. Please if anyone can help me please, I am begging you, I can loose everything that is dear to me if I keep going this way. I have 4 boys (young boys) and I have SEVERE rage issuse so that is why I am on the benzo's...which I really think help me because I am much more loving to them when I am on them. It scares me to stay on them but it scares me to stop them too. Please, anyone, give me some advice, I am desperate, it means the lives and the future of my children and my marriage.
> Thanks so much Kelly


Please rescue those pills!

Wellbutrin withdrawal is not pretty and can lead to the very thing you fear the most. Have you tried discussing your concerns with your doctor?
It is not easy but it is worth the effort.
Your circumstance is too complicated for me to advise you except to say I almost died from going cold turkey.
Wellbutrin should be tapered over a period of MONTHS. As bad as things seem they can always get better if we are patient.

Nutrition is vital during withdrawal. I reccomend using Google to see what Larry Hoover has to say about herbs and vitamins. Fish oil (combined with vitamin E) is especially important.

My best to you and it's great that you still care for your kids during this rough patch.
