Experts in Prescription Drug Withdrawal
We offer affordable tapering programs to help you withdraw from Bupropion
Bupropion is also marketed as Wellbutrin and is a psychostimulant and an atypical antidepressant that exerts its action on Norepinephrine and Dopamine. Norepinephrine, along with Epinephrine underlies the flight-or-fight response by increasing heart rate, triggering the release of glucose and increasing blood flow to the skeletal muscle. Dopamine plays a major role in reward-driven learning in the brain system. Stimulants such as cocaine and methamphetamine act directly on dopamine.
While initially marketed as an antidepressant, Bupropion was later used as a smoking cessation aid and over 20 million prescriptions were written in 2007, making it the fourth most prescribed antidepressant in the United States.
The prescribing information states that Bupropion does not require dose tapering, but case reports indicate that stopping Bupropion abruptly can cause a discontinuation syndrome that causes irritability, anxiety, mania, dystonia (neurological movement disorder) and many other symptoms. Therefore it is recommended to taper Bupropion to minimize withdrawal symptoms.
Bupropion is similar in structure to some stimulants and affects Dopamine and Norepinephrine. Bupropion withdrawal symptoms can be eased through a slow titration and the elimination of interaction items. Let us show you how to withdraw from Buproion safely and comfortably.

What is Bupropion?(Wellbutrin, Zyban)
Wellbutrin (Bupropion) is an atypical antidepressant with pharmacological action as a Norepinephrine Dopamine Reuptake Inhibitor. Wellbutrin belongs to the chemical class of aminoketones and is similar in structure to some stimulants. This may explain why agitation and anxiety can increase in some patients, particularly at higher doses. It has also been approved as a smoking cessation aid. In 2007, Wellbutrin was the fourth-most prescribed antidepressant in the United States. Wellbutrin lowers the seizure threshold and its potential to cause seizures has been documented. This controversial side effect was responsible for its initial withdrawal from the market, but was found to be largely dose-dependent and approved. Abrupt discontinuation may result in withdrawal symptoms yet the manufacturer recommends dose tapering only if Wellbutrin was prescribed for Seasonal Affective Disorder and is not required if used as a smoking cessation treatment.
