Can you stop bupropion/zyban/wellbutrin cold turkey? What are some of the withdrawal symptoms? Is it dangerous to stop suddenly? Thanks :)

In brief: Withdrawal sxs

Please d/w your prescribing provider. It is recommended that dose be decreased by 50mg every 4 days - but in reality - dose is often v'ed much faster. Wellbutrin (bupropion) withdrawal symptoms can include fatigue, migraine or other types of headaches, zapped or tingling sensation, indigestion, abdominal cramping, loose bowel movements, worsening depressive sxs, anxiety, hostility, paranoia, & crying spells.
