Is it safe to stop taking Wellbutrin XL?

Please before you tell me to talk to my doctor, I know but he is not going to give me the answer I am looking for, he will just tell me to keep taking it for the depression.

So, my question is, is it safe to stop taking Wellbutrin XL 150mg once a day without weaning off it. I don't care if it is going to give me flu like symptoms or horrible headaches or whatnot. I care it something horrible is going to happen and upon a quick google search I found forums mentioning "horror stories" from quitting cold turkey but no one said what them stories are.

I only want to stop taking it for maybe two weeks. I have been having horrible insomnia for the past few months, starting a week or so after I started taking it, and I need to come off it to find out if this is what is causing it. I can't live with this anymore, the insomnia is making me so depressed and wanting to die.

Please any help would be appreciated, thank you.
