    Word. Just like OneDiaDem said, no high, can mess with your sex
    drive, and it gave me wicked headaches every morning. But I'm not
    sure if headaches is a side effect of it though, or common.

    Wellbutrin isn't a Benzo, it's a SDRI - specific dopamine reuptake inhibitor - and it's some nasty shit. Highly dose responsive, so anything above 300mg in 24 hours vastly increases your chances of seizure, heart attack, depersonalisation(very uncomfortable!), panic attacks, the list goes on - the side effect profile of this little baby is about a mile long, and really quite scary! If you take this expecting to get a benzo buzz you'll be very disappointed, as it is a hardcore stimulant and not to be messed with. It's a killer. Do not take it. Please use the search engine and web searches - do your homework!

    Ohh I forgot the other method, you can put them up your butt. It works
    better then inter-muscular injection, but has no rush like IV
    injection. You might not even have to process the pill to do that.

    It wouldn't be a bad idea to quickly process the pills:

    -crush up 10 of them into hot water
    -let it sit overnight
    -pour off the water
    -give yourself an anal douche

    This will give you the runs, so you should 'clean things out' beforehand.


    *just noticed that the orgional post was from november* oh well

    Yikes! I hope they don't actually make those - that would make you feel awful...



    Wellbutrin (Bupropion HCl) is an SSRI - "Selective Serotonin Reuptake Inhibitor"</span>



    micklemouse still had it right tho .. straying from the prescribed dose
    will more likely give you a seizure than a high. Seizures can
    potentially kill you, and if they don't, I'm going to assume they suck.



    Consider yourself lucky if you've never had to take SSRI's, the side
    effects are only worth it if you have a genuine condition. They
    certainly aren't useable as a recreational drug.

    computergod people like you become statistics. I suppose you just went ahead on a journey of mad discovery to find this out?

    Your processing method doesn't make sense to me - one would think the
    Buprion HCl would dissolve into the water (if an actual extraction were
    taking place) so all you would be sticking up your ass is the binders



    How exactly did you inject wellbutrin? I wasn't aware it came in anything other than pill form.

    Maybe you're talking about another drug altogether here?

    Sorry to be pedantic DP, but wellbutrin is a SDRI. Scary but true! It was first formulated in the 60's, long before SSRI's. It's still banned as an antidepressant in Briton, but is used as an aid to stop smoking, with a very limited supply, and under close gp supervision. In the U.S. it seems it's still prescribed as an antidepressant, and seems to be the drug of choice to be given to people kicking coke. It was banned in Briton due to the fact that people kept having psychotic episodes, seizures or dropping dead on it. And yeah, people are extracting the active ingredient and banging it. Fools! Maybe it's a Darwinian thing? I dunno, but it does seem there are a lot of statistics waiting to happen out there! [​IMG]

    I meant to keep the water, and toss the filler left behind.

    It works on norepinephrine, serotonin, and dopamine. However, it seems
    to mostly act on dopamine. The injectable version comes from the link I
    provided. The only references to people dieing from it, are from
    people who orally took large quantities in suicide attempts. They died
    from heart attacks IIRC.

    No, they did not! From the Canadian Medical Association...CMAJ • January 8, 2002; 166 (1)
    © 2002 Canadian Medical Association or its licensors
    3 out of 19 does not make even a majority, never mind the 'only cases'. For a prescription drug, 16 related deaths(not counting suicides) in 3 years is pretty high, I'm sure you'd agree. You're playing with fire and at the same time spreading misinformation that 30 seconds on google blows out of the water. Please stop!

    Wow! My bad! I suppose I should have done my reading first [​IMG] Thanks for correcting me!

    At any rate, the sheer volume of scary side effects for OD'ing on this stuff is enough to make snorting it a bad move.

    In terms of pharmaceuticals, this stuff has a high amount of side
    effects. However, when compared to something like cocaine, its side
    effects don't look that bad.

    Cocaine example from erowid:

    PHYSICAL EFFECTS:

    Increases heart rate, blood pressure, body temperature, and sweating.
    Increases speed of respiration, dilates the pupils, decreased sleep and
    appetite. Can decrease seizure threshold and is associated with
    seizures, strokes, and heart attacks in susceptible individuals.

    OVERDOSE SYMPTOMS:

    Agitation, hostility, hallucinations, convulsions, high body
    temperature (hyperthermia), stroke, heart attack, and possibly death.




    I'm not saying that its a good idea to do, but its not categorically bad either.

    Wellbutrin (Bupropion) question

    I've heard that wellbutrin is good the day after doing coke to kinda take the edge off and help to not want it as much for a few days.Will it take some of the craving away so I won't want to go get a gram EVERYDAY?What would be a safe dosage in mg to take. I have heard that they give seizures so i don't want to take a lot. I have 300 mg XL's I was thinking half would be good, do you think that would be about right? Any help would be appriciated.

    no expert on this but have taken lost of weelbutrin and think that it offers some protection against cravings of diffrent kind, alcohol, nicitine, so i would assume that although it might not help an addict it can help take th edge off.


    however, i would like to know if there are other, cheaper and better alternatives.

    parachuting Wellbutrin (Bupropion)

    I had no idea where to put this thread. If SWIM were to parachute Wellbutrin will it have the same effects if it is snorted?
