With me the Celexa just killed my libido and had no desire for anything. My doctor then weaned me off the Celexa and put me on the Bupropion XL. He started me for 7 days on 150 mg and then went to 300 mg. Everyone is different but the Bupropion gave me back my libido and still keeps my depression in check. I do recall my doctor saying the Bupropion can take a few weeks to get the full effect since I had already been on the Celexa.
Also, I was told that bupropion xl 150 mg, yellow oval, id 681 is no longer available...can you confirm?
But, I'm currently on the same med bupropion XL, only 150 for the past 3 weeks and I was wondering since you have been taking it longer, how long till you started feeling any help w/ the depression?? I'm waiting for a call back from Doctor(maybe up it?
No problem :) I was on XL
Started Generic Wellbutrin 150 SR 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???
Last month, a different pharmacy gave me the Bupropion 150 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!
I have been on sr 150 for two months now and just switched to xl 300 as the sr was not doing anything for me. Should I be expecting a change for the better or are they the same?
I started taking Buproprion XL 150 mg on 4/11/13 in addition with Sertraline 100 mg although I have Hypothyroidism since 2003. Recently I have had higher amounta of depressed and rage feelings. So my doctor gave me an increase to 300mg Bupropion XL and to help me sleep Lorazepam/Ativan .05 mg. I would give it a month and see your doctor in a month for a recheck with your doctor.
Thank you for your educated response. Yes, the Wellbutrin I'm on is XL 150 mg once a day. The Lexapro is 5-10 mg depends on how much I can tolerate. What does QD mean? quarter a day??
In recent months I found things were getting progressively worse with my depression, I'm thinking it's because we had lowered my dose to 150 per day and it was only lasting 12 hours.. I'm now on the right one, 300MG of XL once per day, does anyone have any feedback on if this works better for them then SR? I hope and pray this gets me back on track, I can't take much more of this rollercoaster ride... Any imput would be great!
I've been on Wellbutrin SR 150 mg for 3 years. My dr suggested I switch to the generic 100 mg (3 times a day)because it's cheaper. I was taking the Wellbutrin one each night. Two days ago I started the generic one at night. This morning I woke up crying & didn't feel well, so I took another but it made me feel tired, but better. Is it ok to take two at night of the generic rather than one in the morning and one at noon? Will it stay in my system because it's not timed released?
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. I'm going to try and go back on the SR 100mg now and see if there is a difference.. My question is it possible that once version of the drug makes me more depressed while the other once makes me happier?
I have recently for the last few months went into the worst depression since highschool. I am on Bupropion 150 mg for 1 week and already I am having sex with my husband that feels like it did before the Paxil more than 4 years ago , However on the 9th day , the 2nd day of uping my dosage to 300 mg I broke out in a non-itchy rash everywhere and had tingling in my throat with very slight closing, nothing scary just slightly uncomfortable. Of course I called the DR.

I am currently being medicated with Wellbutrin 150 mg three times a day and neurontin 100 mg twice a day. I was diagnosed with major depressive disorder. I want to learn everything I can to stay well...I try to read up on the condition I am diagnosed with to be informed.. the more I read ,...the more I see that these meds are used to treat bipolar disorder....I am starting to suspect that I am not getting the right diagnosis or that the psychiatrists are not telling me everything.
The dose should not exceed 150 mg every other day in these patients. Wellbutrin XL should be used with caution in patients with hepatic impairment (including mild to moderate hepatic cirrhosis) and a reduced frequency and/or dose should be considered in patients with mild to moderate hepatic cirrhosis (see CLINICAL PHARMACOLOGY, WARNINGS, and PRECAUTIONS). http://www.drugs.com/pro/wellbutrin.

I then ping-ponged back to Wellbutrin XL, 150 mg. for acouple of days, and still continued to get worse. I called my psychiatrist, and he told me to go back on Teva's Buproprion, 100 mg. until I feel better. I have done this, and still have the tingling, prickly, sensation in my extremeties, and the hot/cold flashes are horrible. How d o know if I am getting these side-effects from too much Buproprion or am I suffering withdrawl symptoms from lack of the original Buproprion.
Today my doctor told me to keep taking the zoloft and he also told me to start taking welbutrin 150 xl. Supposed to effect different parts or chemicals of the brain. Today is only day 1 and I realize that it takes some time to take effect. So my question is how has it worked for anyone out there taking this combo. Do you feel better, worse, same. I hope to feel better since it is supposed to effect the dopamine and make me happier and what not.
Effexor and 150 mg. Wellbutrin (bupropion, generic) P.M. 75 mg. Effexor and 150 mg. Wellbutrin I feel remarkably better. Hang in there. Give it a chance so you can feel as good as possible through Tx. btw: It is the Wellbutrin XL that is hard on the liver, because it is time-released. The 75 mg. are available "non-XL". They aren't time released.
Fresh, My script just said to take 300 mg 2 X a day. Thank God I didn't do that. Dumb Drs. A nurse told me to take 150 mg first thing in the morning. Then take the other 150 mg by 2 or 3 pm. Wellbutrin is supposed to be activating so you don't want to take it at night. I found that it did not interfere with my sleep at all. I did feel irritated too. But then a couple of weeks in, I started to feel so sad. The sadness was worse than any sad I had ever felt.
Although I think it has increased until I started Prozac last week (I only took it for 3 days and just switched to Bupropion XL 150 mg (generic Wellbutrin). I decided to try something again because I was told my symptoms could be because of depression...but I'm depressed because of my symptoms! I didn't feel any less tired, etc. while on the antidepressants in the past...Since Prozac causes sexual side effects, I didn't want to be on it.
I took wellbutrin XL 150 mg for several months. I gained 10 pounds and constantly craved sugar and sweets. Everything smelled very strong. It also greatly increased my sex drive. that was nice but I couldn't handle the weight gain. I just want to warn everyone that not everyone loses weight I didn't.
I still take the SR 150 and now I use the generic Bupropion SR 150. I tried the two a day for awhile but was just a bit too lacadaisical so went back to one and seems to work for me. I was willing to shell out the $70 out of my pocket (before generic) til hubby got a job with insurance. I will say I have one friend who didn't respond as well with the generic as the name brand. Dunno why either. Another week and you should know something. You started a day ago, right?
Wellbutrin a.k.a. Bupropion (generic) 75 & 100 mg. are available in the "old-fashioned-non-time-release-less-liver-effective" form. 150 mg. are only available in SR (sustained release) - more liver processing. Higher mg. are only available in the latest XL form... like lots of the new drugs with tons of small print about the liver.
