With an exended release tablet there really is no way taper the dose.  I don't think there is any reason not to simply discontinue the welbutrin and start on the new drug.

I have been on this medication a couple times and my Dr said it is not as important to taper with this as some other medications but I was on 2 150mg tabs daily. There are lower dose tabs though so once I did go to 75mg twice a day and then 75mg once a day and then 75mg every other day. I did each for about 4 days. I didn't have any problems the other times that I just stopped though. Good Luck
