Again I am not a doctor, but it sounds like you want off this stuff asap and this is the best I could think of.

It's been awhile since I've been on the forums, but I thought maybe somebody here would have an idea. I have been on Cipralex 10mg since November 2009, and I recently was put on Wellbutrin XL 150mg once daily. It has only been a week but I have decided that I do not want to take the Wellbutrin anymore. My question is, would it be safe to stop abruptly since it's only been about 7 days? Or should I alowly ween off (one pill every other day?) I know that this is something I should be discussing with my doctor, but he is away until the second week of August. The thing is if I want to get out of this, I would rather do it sooner than later to prevent any sort of withdrawal symptoms. Anyone have any personal experiences or advice to share? That would be greatly appreciated, thank you! :)
I didn't like the stuff either but I stayed on it awhile in the hopes of quitting smoking. It didn't work for me but it did help me reduce my smoking. I finally decided to go off the Wellbutrin. I just quit it cold turkey. I didn't have any withdrawal symptoms as I recall, but maybe I was lucky. You should read the drug literature and probably talk with a pharmacist. They are more knowledgable about drugs than doctors.
