Wellbutrin Addiction and Wellbutrin Abuse

What is Wellbutrin abuse?

Long-term anti-depressant use may eventually lead to a serious dependence upon the drug — so serious that one cannot function without the drug.

This hypothesis is confirmed by the many serious Wellbutrin addiction withdrawal symptoms that may be experienced when a person forgets to take a dose or discontinues use completely.

Though anti-depressants are not likely to be abused, many long-term users develop an anti-depressant tolerance.
