You need to discuss a tapering strategy with your doctor.  This isn't something that you want to kind of wing it with.

I have been on and off wellbutrin and never had a w/d from stopping.  That is of course my response.  I did a check and found this in more than one place.

Wellbutrin (buproprion) is a relatively weak antidepressant and has a low rate of withdrawal syndrome compared to the SSRIs and SNRIs such as Paxil, Effexor, or Cymbalta.
