We now return you to your regularly scheduled programming....
Note: I know this thread is basically a trip report, however I would just like to hear from others about their experiences with this pharm.
Hey guys, I was just wondering if anyone else was curious (stupid may be a better word) like me, and tried using Wellbutrin (bupropion) for a recreational purpose. I took approximately 3,000 mg (which is a bad idea) and began to have vivid hallucinations all throughout the night and even the next day. In my bedroom, I saw tons of spiders and scorpions crawling all along my ceiling and eventually dropping down on me. Spiders were literally everywhere, and when they were falling on me, I would physically feel the touch of their legs on my skin (it was very odd).
I also witnessed what appeared to be an older man (it was so convincing) that would sit at the end of my bed and laugh at me, but obviously he was just a part of the hallucinations. At one point I remember seeing myself lying on my bedroom floor covered with the spiders and what looked to be a weird type of centipede. I cannot describe how scared I was at first, but after a while I realized that it was all in my head and things eventually got better. Every object in my room would just constantly sway back and forth and it was very interesting to watch. Eventually, I somehow managed to fall asleep through all the chaos, and unfortunately, I do not remember much else from this experience.
It was all such a mind-fuck for me and I will certainly never touch Wellbutrin again. Even now, the day after the experience, I am still experiencing mild hallucinations. Although all the creatures and images were quite frightening, I do not necessarily regret doing it.
tl;dr - I was just curious if anyone else has ever had a series of hallucinations while on Bupropion.

Peace guys ,
