" Before I came to Point of Return, I had tried to get off antidepressants on my own a few times. Each time I was fine for a while, but then some life change would hit and I would be back on them again. I am now free from drugs thanks to this program, and look forward to paying it forward and helping others in their journey to loving themselves once again. more.. - Paula (USA)

Wellbutrin history and info
Wellbutrin is an atypical antidepressant that acts on Norepinephrine and Dopamine and belongs to the chemical class of aminoketones that are similar in structure to amphetamines. Wellbutrin is a psychostimulant that exerts its action on Dopamine and Norepinephrine. Dopamine performs a key role in the brain system’s reward-driven learning, and Norepinephrine is crucial in the fight-or-flight response by triggering the release of glucose, increasing heart rate and blood flow to the skeletal system. While the prescribing information for Wellbutrin states a gradual taper is not necessary, 30% of patients have shown Wellbutrin withdrawal symptoms do occur that include anxiety, irritability, aggression, mania, uncontrolled movements and mania. Abruptly or rapidly stopping Wellbutrin is not recommended due to the withdrawal syndrome. A gradual taper is advised.
In 2014, a court in China (world's 2nd largest pharmaceutical market) fined GlaxoSmithKline $492 million for bribing Chinese physicians and medical facilities to use more of its products, including Wellbutrin. The court sentenced Glaxo employees to prison.
Wellbutrin was released in 1986 with dosage recommendations of 400-600mg, however a significant incidence of seizures caused the drug to be removed the same year. Wellbutrin was reintroduced in 1989 with a maximum recommended dose of 450mg/day. The FDA approved the sustained-release formulation in 1996 called Wellbutrin SR that required twice a day dosing. In 2003 the FDA approved another sustained release formulation called Wellbutrin XL that called for once a day dosing. GlaxoSmithKline Pharmaceuticals advises that Wellubtin (Buproprion) should not be prescribed to patients with epilepsy or other conditions that lower the seizure threshold.
There is evidence of neuropsychiatric symptoms associated with Wellbutrin in patients with depression, including hallucinations, psychosis, delusions, paranoia, confusion and disturbances in concentration. These side effects are also common with stimulant medications. In addition, the prescribing information lists hypertension, sometimes severe, was observed in patients both with and without pre-existing hypertension. There have been reports of a false-positive urine test for amphetamine use in persons taking Wellbutrin.
While the prescribing information for Wellbutrin states a gradual taper is not necessary, 30% of patients have shown withdrawal symptoms do occur that include anxiety, irritability, aggression, mania, uncontrolled movements and mania.
