Bupropion-Associated Withdrawal Symptoms: A Case Report

Timothy R. Berigan, DDS, MD, and Jeffrey S. Harazin, MD

Published: April 1, 1999

Article Abstract

Withdrawal symptoms associated with the cessation of therapy have been widely described for most antidepressants. The authors report irritable mood, anxiety, sleeplessness, headache, and generalized aches and pains associated with the abrupt discontinuation of bupropion treatment in a 32-year-old man being treated for nicotine dependence. The authors recommend a slow taper for antidepressant discontinuation, along with vigilance for withdrawal symptoms and educating patients to the benefits of compliance.
