URGENT. Overdose wellbutrin
I took 600mg bupropion xl. I'm only supposed to take 300mg. I have a high tolerance to meds but I'm scared shitless. I know this doesn't really belong here but i had a lot of posts and im really ducked. I also take 100 serotonin

I don't know that drug so I have no idea of the impact.

If worried, call a doctor.

Meantime... Drink lots and lots of water and cause yourself to vomit... Repeatedly.

Yeah, a doctor is going to do you way more good than a bunch of armchair physicians who haven't been to med school. That, or call poison control. If they don't have an answer, they'll probably tell you to call a doctor, anyway.

The FDA max recommend dosage for the XL would be 450mg, so technically your only about 150mg beyond that. Judging that you've only taken this dosage once by mistake, you'd probably be fine. I'd still recommend you contact you're doctor, but I don't think there's any reason to be scared shitless.

Call poison control - that appears to be a dangerous overdose.

RE: URGENT. Overdose wellbutrin
So 600 and 800mg doses were prescribed in the 1980s and then it was taken off the market thanks to patients having seizures. Research showed 300mg doses were effective and the risk minimal, thus placed back on the market.

Just one dose of 600mg most likely won't take you to that threshold. If anything, expect increased anxiety, palpitations/feelings like your heart is pounding, and a faster heart rate. (That's what it does to me when I make that mistake...300 is my dose).

RE: URGENT. Overdose wellbutrin
Call your doctor because he/she is aware of your medical history and is better able to make that assessment than any of us. Just saw Chas' post--call poison control if you are not able to get in touch with your doctor immediately.

That's 30 grams, not milligrams. He took 300mg above his written dosage, and 150mg about the FDA recommendation.
