Wellbutrin (bupropion) dc: Typically not a problem compared to the ssri's - they can cause considerable problems (serotonin discontinuation). Since wellbutrin (bupropion) has its major effect on Dopamine > norepinephrine, the acuity of symptoms with its discontinuation even if abrupt is much less. Of course one is not to abruptly stop any med unless allergy or significant untoward reactions. There is a chance of depression recurring.
