Using Wellbutrin to help quit

4 posts in this topic

Been using two or three 75mg of Wellbutrin to help quit the addy. Usually stack it with magnesium first thing in the morning and washing them down with coffee or energy drink. The first week off adderall is easy enough (almost like you still have some in your system) but the third week is tough. Now I'm up to two months without Adderall and it's getting tough again. Anyone else use Wellbutrin to help quit?

I started addy in 2011 and took an average of 30mg a day sometimes bumping it up to 50mg. Been off it for up to 6 months then relapsed again. Before quitting I usually pair down to 15mg then go cold turkey.

I have used it but didn't start until after my first year of quitting. It did seem to help me some for sure get past some bad depression. I stopped using it cold turkey about two weeks ago had really no bad side effects besides some mild  headaches definitely a big plus for that medication. But if you think any pill/ supplement will make that first year not tough your mistaken. The first year is a struggle no way around it exercise, diet , sunlight and positive thinking is your best tools to survive addy free.

Ugh...that's what I'm going to see about getting.  Just had genesight done to see what meds I can use with little or less side effects, to help me get off Adderall.  I've been on 17 year and know it ain't gonna be easy....never seems like a good time.

I was off everything for my first six months. Been completely sober thew hole time, but started using Wellbutring at the six month mark because my depression and focus weren't getting better. Was on it for two years I believe. Think it really helped.
