Wellbutrin Discontinuation

Posted by exisessentialist on December 18, 2022, at 11:08:01

Hi, all. I have this longstanding habit of dismissing side effects when starting a new medication in hopes that they either will subside or that the positives will outweigh them and then ultimately only recall the profound negatives several months later. As a consequence, I am needing to discontinue wellbutrin Xl 300 mg and I'm wondering how quickly it is safe to do so. I am also on Adderall Xr 30 mg in AM, 15 mg in afternoon, Lamictal 100 mg morning and night, Paxil 60 mg and lorazepam 1 mg four times daily. I decreased my dose of Wellbutrin to 150 mg on Friday and have seen an almost immediate improvement in rigidity within my body and intrusive thoughts. OCD with confounded major depressive disorder and eating disorder not otherwise specified are my diagnoses. I also just started drinking coffee again, one cup spread out over the course of a full day recently, which was the impetus for discontuining wellbutrin as it helps more with energy and intrusive thinking than the wellbutrin ever did. I want to increase my coffee consumption without fear of a seizure due to the interaction between wellbutrin and caffeine, I'm also on a keto diet which affects electrolytes, so that's a concern with the wellbutrin. Thank you all for your time.
