5 wellbutrin all at once, danger?

Posted by iforgotmypassword on April 25, 2007, at 22:28:22

yes, i know. i've already gone over how stupid i am in my head.

swallowing pills was the closest thing i could do to actually completing a task. can't go into how i am feeling right now. just need to know if what i did, given it has been a while since being on wellbutrin, should make me worry for any reasons? i am particularly concerned about cardiovascular effects right now. i already normally have high-ish blood pressure.

it is prolly also making me worry more obviously. i took them because i cannot complete tasks and it is really destroying my life and i have things i really need to do. augh. it was an error. i meant to take less. but i figured since i threw up what i figured was most of my stomach contents, and hadnt felt anything, it just all went out along with. so i took 2 more.

given the way i feel right now, i think it didn't come out like i thought, and i think it all just kicked in, and now i am really feeling a lot of worry, but can't decipher if it is just the drug effects. :( i wish i wasn't such a screw up. i'm not a drug abuser, this is just from screwing up, and following an action, because i need to jump on to actions when i can and have the chance to coax my head on anything, i do it because i am trying to go on to the next tasks i need to do, but always fail to even get there. my mind is always cement. it is very hard to negotiate with my head.

look up side effects of wellbutrin on wikipedia or something but i believe they do include increaced heart rate and blood pressure... also ive heard from a few sources that it can induce very bad hallucinations... if i were you especially if your at risk for heart problems... go to the doctor and tell them u did it on accident. its not a massive overdose and most likely nothing will come of it but better to be safe than sorry.... wat strength were the wellbutrin btw? ive taken 600mg and had no overdose symptoms but i have a huge tolerance for all drugs ive ever taken...

strength was 150mg, so my main worry was just that maybe going from 0mg to 750mg is asking for it. god i really don't like how i am feeling right now. thank you for responding.

If you have some beta blockers they might be worth using as I think your biggest worry would be cardiovascular.

If you have a BP monitor use it, and go to hospital if you are feeling tightness of chest, faintness etc.

The max wellbutrin sr dose is 450mg a day. Not sure what strength pills you have. Just make sure you don't end up with a seziure. Which is a lot more comon the higher the dose.

Have you taken this medication before? If so at what dosage and what were the effects?

Why don't you call Poison Control. They will know exactly what you should be conscerned about.

Try not to get worked up over it emotionally. Easier said than done I know.

Peace,
Kaye

oh yes, i'm fine. thanks. :) sorry i missed this.

i think the fact that it is so overstimulating / norandrenergic kind of overdrove my worry.

I'm sure that was very uncomfortable.

I am sorry that you are feeling so bad that you would try that.

What kind of medicine do you think might help you??

Take Care,
Kaye
