Bupropion sr 150

Common Questions and Answers about Bupropion sr 150


My new dr has put me on <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>bupropion</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>sr</span> 2 monts ago. I didn't feel I needed it, but she persuaded me to try it... I wish I hadn't. I am having terrible nightmares, headaches and bronchitis type cough for 6 weeks. I don't know if the cough is related to the medicine or not, but I can't shake it... The dr hasn't figured the cough out, but thought staying on the medicine would help me overcome my recent weight gain. I have decided I want off this stuff and want to go ahead and do it on my own..
My doctor swiched me from Paxil to <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>bupropion</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>sr</span>. last week and He said that thier was no need to ween myself off of the Paxil. So I started the bupropion sr at 150mg once a day for 4 days and then was to go on to two a day, Well since I started the drug. I have been very dizzy and if I move my head to fast I feel like a jolt in my vision. I told my doctor and he suggested to stay on the one a day for another week. I also have lost a pound a day since starting the drug.
But according to the manufacturer and depending on how many milligrams you are taking you should take Wellbutrin <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>sr</span> and any generic form like <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>bupropion</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>sr</span> TWICE A DAY when used for depression and should definitely NOT take two tablets once a day. bupropion sr is also a sustain release tablet. I am surprised you are not able to take it during the day and take it at night. Typically Wellbutrin and bupropion can act as a stimulant for many people and can make it hard to sleep.
Has anyone ever tried <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>bupropion</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>sr</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>150</span> mg for hot flashes? I have had severe hot flashes for a number of years along with anxiety. I started to take bupropion sr 150 mg and it has subsided and I have been only on it for 5 days, I hate being on another anti depressant currently also on amitriptyline 50 mg for sleep a big weight gain issue with this.. the only side effect I get with bupropion sr is the is the ringing in my ears that bothers me. Anyone have similar issues?
Started Generic Wellbutrin <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>150</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>sr</span> almost 2 weeks ago. Only taking 1 per day prescribed by a GP. Dose will probably change after my first actual phsyciatrist appt. this week. Question is: I got my period for the normal 5 days and have been spotting for 5 MORE DAYS AND COUNTING! Is this one of the "start up" side effects or a permanent thing???
My husband was taking Wellbutrin <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>sr</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>150</span> the doctor upped him to 200 <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>sr</span> and they gave him buprion 200 sr(on the bottle it says just Bupr). He had lots of energy on the Wellbutrin sr150 and was a pleasure to be arounds, but on this 200 buprionsr he goes to sleep and is like snappen at me all the time. After reading some of these questions I am worried that things are going to go back to the way they were before he started taking his meds.

Long story short I discovered yesterday when calling in my refill of <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>bupropion</span> that it was sr and has been since June when both my doctor and I thought it was XL.. I had been taking 300MG of sr every morning and not 2x daily like recommended because my doctor told me it was going to be XL 24 hour, I assumed it was right and realized I've been doing it wrong all along..
Dear Bo, Wellbutrin <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>sr</span> (<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>bupropion</span>) is an antidepressant that was shown not to have any sexual side effects. About 25% of the patients who were taking this medication showed some weight loss . It is preferred to gradually taper Effexor over a few weeks in order to prevent any withdrawal symptoms. Abrupt discontinuation of Effexor can lead to withdrawal symptoms such as nausea, insomnia, lightheadedness etc. These symptoms may last for a period of few days to a week.
For this reason, I take the generic <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>bupropion</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>sr</span> (also it is cheaper for me). When I started, I was taking the <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>sr</span> 150mg only in the morning, then after 4 weeks the dr. had me take it 150mg in the morning and 150mg in the evening. I could definitely tell the difference with the twice daily regimen, but for me it took several weeks to get the full effects; although, it helped with mild ED right away. I'm not a Dr., but I think the generic sr is fine.
My doctor prescribed <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>bupropion</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>150</span> mg <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>sr</span> tab twice daily and cyclobenzaprine 5 mg tab (1 daily @ bedtime) for muscle spasms due to back injury. I saw online that it might be dangerous to take these together. Is this true? If so, wouldn't my doctor know about it? I'm scared to take the cyclobenzaprine even tho I am in terrible pain. Help.
It does not make me hyper -- This drug actually makes me a bit sleepy and drowsy so I take it before bed. I took <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>bupropion</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>sr</span> 100mg for 3 days and felt instantly happier, less stressed out and brighter about life. My doctor gave me a perscription for severe depression but he wrote it for Wellbutrin XL 150 mg. The past 3 days I have been on the W XL and my mood has worsened to even worse than it was before taking Wellbutrin.
Is anyone getting ringing in the ears from taking Generic Wellbutrin(<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>bupropion</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>sr</span> ) <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>150</span> mg. Here is my situation I have been on amitriptiline 25 mg 4 years then went up to 50 mg for 3 years. I started taking only one 150 mg of bupropion sr this is my 5 day. Can I stop taking the amitriptiline with no withdrawls after only 5 days of bupropion? or has it not been long enough. I hoping that I can stop the amitriptiline by taking the bupropion sr in place of the amitriptiline.
Is it possible for hot flashes to go away with taking only <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>150</span> mg of <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>bupropion</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>sr</span>. I know from what I read it can cause them, but I already have them pretty severe, and it seems better is this possible?

I noticed that when she recieved a new script from Medco, the pills were a different color and it said <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>bupropion</span> HCL <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>sr</span> instead of <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>bupropion</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>sr</span>. They assure us they are the same but with the mood swings and agrevation I have observed in the last week. "Something is different". I guess my question would be since she has been totally sober for the last ten years or so and has been taking a lower dose for the last year, 150 mg, I am wondering if she should just stop.

Personally I take it for ADD andwhen I was boosted from <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>150</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>sr</span> to 300sr I frlt as if I were losing IQ points by the minute. Currently I am on 150sr and then in the afternoon another 75 regular release pill. This seems to work much better.
I lost 30 pounds n 4 months on <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>bupropion</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>sr</span>. I have kept it off for a year now. Im concerned with if I stop taking the medication will i gain all the weight back.
Iaccidentally took two <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>150</span> mg <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>bupropion</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>sr</span> tabs this morning and not sure if I should worry too much for adverse reactions. What can I expect? It is prescribed for me to take one in the morning. The problem is I don’t wake up in the morning. When I do wake up it is closer to noon which may be too late to take the pill because I get too hyper late at night. I can’t sleep. I’m trying to take it before I wake up fully, so I can take it earlier.
While it is true that Wellbutrin <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>sr</span> (<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>150</span> mg) is also marketed as Zyban (in fact the pills are identical looking only with different stamps on them), Wellbutrin does come in a 75 mg and 100 mg tablet (Zyban has only 1 strength-150mg). You can avoid many of the side-effects by slowly and properly increasing your dose over days to weeks.
I have been taking <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>150</span> mg <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>sr</span> 2x/day for 5 years and have taken it 3x/day starting in early fall until early spring because I have a seasonal thing going on. 450 mg made me nutty, 300 less so but there is still the issue of irritability, anger and sometimes downright hostility. Being warned about it when I first began using bupropion, I have been willing to risk the irritability vs. a relapse into a depressed state.
I take: Buspirone HCL 15mg 2x (1x morning, 1x night) <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>bupropion</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>sr</span> 150mg 2x (1x morning, 1x afternoon) Fluoetine 20mg 3x (3x morning) I am going to stop. What is the best weaning schedule for these medications.
I have been seeing my Psychiatrist monthly and my therapist weekly. I am currently taking <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>150</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>bupropion</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>sr</span> twice a day an 20 mg of fetzima along with generic xanax. My Therapist has recommended Intensive Outpatient Therapy. I am not too jazzed about going. Has anyone found this to be helpful? I feel like I am ready to just come off everything and see what happens because nothing seems to work. I never knew depression could become so mentally and physically debilitating.
My new insurance plan does not cover the Wellbutrin XL, so I had to start taking the generic <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>bupropion</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>sr</span> a couple days ago. The new Rx is for <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>150</span> mg, 1 tab twice daily. I take the first one around 8am and the first day I became very dizzy, shaky and hot flashes around 4:30-5:00 pm. I took the 2nd dose and felt fine within half an hour. I have never experienced any side effects from Wellbutrin, so I wasn't sure if it was related.
Last month, a different pharmacy gave me the <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>bupropion</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>150</span> XL made by Mylan. Within two weeks, I have become increasingly depressed (lethargy, apathy) and I am getting very irritated and angry, feeling jittery all day, trouble focusing my eyes, and more manic behavior (I am also on lamotrigine for bipolar disorder). From what I have read online and in this thread, I am hoping that a switch back to the Budeprion will bring me back to normal!
