Look up the side effects of Welbutrin. Tell your doctors office it makes you feel worse than taking nothing. That’s my advice based upon my experience is if you take something and you feel bad don’t never take it again common sense

I take Bupropion, too. Personally, I'd give it 2 or 3 weeks.

A known side effect of Wellbutrin is “Medication induced Parkinsons “ which apparently can last up to seven years for some people SO since you already have PD i would STOP TAKING WELLBUTRIN ASAP. For sure!! But definitely stop under a doctors care!!! Then I would work on detoxing to get the Wellbutrin out of your body ASAP through a variety of methods such as infrared saunas, ( HIT ) High intensity exercise, coffee enema’s and /or colonics, herbs And spices Such as cilantro, turmeric, ashwaganda and Holy Basil /Tulsi. Also essential oils are excellent for detoxing. I can help you with that if you message me. I’ve done a lon lot of research on this due to my needing to detox as well. I also use the essential oils for pain management. My 22 yr olé daughter has been diagnosed as bipolar depression with ADHD and not recently but in the past ODD so getting her to do much of what I suggest is challenging to say the least but I’ve seem how beneficial essential oils can be for mental health as part of a whole protocol and for trying to reduce the amount of pharmaceuticals. I also believe very strongly in the power of CBD oil for Mental health issues as well as PD but the purity and quality really matters I’ve Discovered through extensive expensive waste of money purchases in the past but I’ve finally found one that is helping me!! in fact within 24!hrs of taking t I had noticeably better voice clarity that I’ve Maintained for over a month which has been such a huge quality of life improvement I can’t even put it into words but it’s not without trial and error I’m still tweaking my dosage to see if it can help my sleep issues. Message me if interested in trying this specific CBD oil

Thank you. Could you please provide me some links indicating Bupropion might induce Parkinson's?

I also did a search and see that welbutrin is often prescribed for pd patients. It is usually well tolerated but someone asked this same question on here 2 years ago. One other had that experience.

Time to message your dr/neuro with this info. There are quite a few similar meds you could be prescribed.
