Common Questions and Answers about How long does wellbutrin sr last


Avatar n tn HI. I have a few questions. I have been taking Wellbutrin SR for three and a half months now. Before Wellbutrin SR I took Paxil. I weaned myself from 40mg of Paxil to 5mg, but I can not seem to stop the Paxil. I started off taking one 150mg of Wellbutrin SR and 5mg of Paxil in the morning, and for the last 2 months I have been taking one 150mg of Wellbutrin and 5mg of Paxil in the morning and another 150mg of Wellbutrin in the early evening (no paxil).
Avatar n tn Does Wellbutrin become ineffective after long term use? Do people develop anger issues over time? One doctor told me that these effects are felt early, but would not present after years of use, and today a Psychiatrist told me that my recent emotional (angry) responses were caused by the Wellbutrin and that I needed to change to Lexapro. I'm confused. Can you tell me which is the better answer?
Avatar m tn Ok so I just saw the doctor and showed him some inflamed lymp nodes on the back of my neck...about 3 on each side. I've had an infection in the past so he thinks they just never went down. He did a CBC and all my cells were normal. The weird thing is though I have to bruises that came out of nowhere, my gums are somewhat tender in certain spots and bleed when I brush them...and i was itchy all over last night. I'm taking wellbutrin SR....
Avatar f tn After being on prozac since march and it killing my sex drive,my dr told me to stop it and start wellbutrin sr the prozac didnt help my depresssion much...he told me it would say on the papers that come with it that it can cause seizures..but he said thats only if you r prone to i went to drug checker and put in all my meds ritalin,xanax and says the combo of wellbutrin and ritalin really increases the chance of seizures and so does the xanx..
Avatar n tn Could this be due to the discontinuation of the wellbutrin or the increase in adderall? I feel like I am not truly experiencing life. How long does this confused/dizzy feeling last? Also, I am afraid because the last time I discontinued wellbutrin I started to binge eat (something I never do as I have anorexia).
Avatar n tn For some people the SR causes difficulties sleeping. I take Wellbutrin XL and supplement it with 5htp. Wellbutrin does not work on serotonin, while HTP will help with serotonin. After being prescribed other antidepressants which caused a lot of weight gain-I will not take anything else but wellbutrin. The distress that the weight gain caused is more distressing than anything else to me. It is very difficult to lose weight gained from antidepressant and antipsychotic drugs.
Avatar n tn I have been taking Wellbutrin SR 150mg twice daily for about 6 months. I started taking this after being on Zyban that helped me quit smoking. The physician that started me on Zyban retired and when my perscription of Zyban expired my new physician moved me to Wellbutrin SR. Prior to taking either medicine I have never been treated for or diagnosed for depression. The medication was strictly taking for help with smoking.
Avatar n tn What is the actual difference between Wellbutrin XL and Wellbutrin SR. Will both cause the same weight loss.
Avatar m tn I am so frightened over this that my doctor put me on wellbutrin for extreme anxiety and xanax to get through the first week of the wellbutrin sr. I have had horrible chest muscle pain while taking this wellbutrin sr and I am assured by my doctor my heart is fine, that the palps are due to anxiety. I take protonix 40mg 2x daily, wellbutrin sr 2x, hydrochlorothiazide and atenlol 25mg, I have taken a baby aspirin for years just as precaution since my dad had a heart attack in his 60's.

Avatar n tn i had not touched the stuff (grass) in almost 2 years; so i doubt that my tolerance to it went over the roof. so how long does wellbutrin stays in your brain? i can't believe it takes longer than 2 months. well today i have decided that smoking pot was a waste of my money. i enjoyed the euphoria, i enjoyed the way it made me feel... if it still did i would continue smoking but now it is not worth it i get very little from it, so what is the point. i am back on wellbutrin now, sad, very sad.

Avatar n tn How long before switching to wellbutin xl from wellbutrin sr?
Avatar f tn My Dr switched me over to generice Wellbutrin last week after having tried the SR version. I quit the SR version in early January, see my post in the archives section, due to a bad itching sensation. I quit the generic Wellbutrin on Sunday.
Avatar n tn how long have you been doing this? I am on 275 effexor and 150 long acting wellbutrin and my starch cravings do me in, So i will research if cymbalta could substitute for the wellbutrin which acts differently that effexor and the cocktail is otherwise acceptable. But if you know somethinghere about cymbalta v. Wellbutrin, I'd love to know.
Avatar f tn i am doing great since last taking the wellbutrin sr 150 mg 3 times a day now instead of 2 in am and 1 in pm..
Avatar n tn ) I take both Effexor and wellbutrin. I take 450mg of wellbutrin sr and 37.5mg (for now) of effexor. I have been told that the recommended dossage should not exceed 450mg of wellbutrin sr due to the siezure increase.
Avatar n tn ve had better results with Wellbutrin Sr. As long as your not drinking constantly and excessively no long term affects should effect you. My mother also has no problems with this and alcohol. I would try to be sure, One time shouldn't hurt you.
Avatar n tn Pat, The difference between Wellbutrin SR and Wellbutrin is that the SR(sustained release) only needs to be administered 1-2 times daily as opposed to the other form which requires 3 daily doses. I generally only prescribe the SR form because its more convienent; they are both the same drug (equally effective).There is no evidence to say that the SR form works any better to treat sexual dysfunction but it may be worth a trial.
Avatar n tn My husband was taking Wellbutrin sr 150 the doctor upped him to 200 sr 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.
Avatar n tn I had been seeing a doctor up until july of last year for 6 years and he decided to close his pratice I had been taken off the xanax 1 mg 4 times a day and 200 mg zoloft once a day and put on klonopin 1 mg 3 times a day and 200 mg zoloft then switched to wellbutrin sr 200 mg once a day. after he closed his pratice I found no other doctors that wanted to help so I went off my medications I have pretty much been house bound again since sept of last year.
5143317 tn?1383747820 Hi Ms Sally. Most people would love to have that side effect! I've been taking Wellbutrin for years, but it's part of a drug cocktail formulated for Bipolar disorder. Wellbutrin is also prescribed for folks who want to quit smoking. One way to increase your appetite, exercise. If you've been sedentary,check w Dr. First.
Avatar n tn I've just started taking Wellbutrin SR about 3 days ago, I had been on Effexor SR for the last 2 or so years. I've decided to have another baby but I wanted to take an anitdepressant that might be safer than Effexor SR. I didn't try to taper off one and slowly start the other, I've tried that before and went off the deep end, that was terrible!!
Avatar n tn The doctor even prescribed me sleeping pill, and I take two and feel nothing. How long does it take for Wellbutrin to kick wise...and am I always going to have trouble sleeping?
Avatar n tn Selena, It appears from your description that the Wellbutrin SR is not helpful(keep in mind that you need to be on the medication at least 4 weeks to accurately assess efficacy) and that you had sexual side effects related to Prozac. Other medications such as Celexa may be helpful as it is similar to Prozac and may have less sexual dysfunction asssociated with it.
Avatar n tn About two weeks into my new Wellbutrin regimen (150 mg. SR added to my nightly dose of 33 mg. Remeron), I developed a pretty intense bout of heartburn. This heartburn has stayed with for most of the entire past week-and-a-half, and I've recently added a daily Prilosec to my cocktail, which clears up the problem almost entirely. I'm getting ready to bump my dose up to a second WB 150 SR daily, and am worried about this heartburn issue, as I seem to really be responding to this drug.
Avatar n tn my psych is on temp leave, and another Sr. psych in the office is covering his practice. The Sr. thinks i should be on Lithium instead of an anticonvulsant because he says it's better at preventing relapses because i was depressed for a month, but now am going up in mania. I read the side effects of Lith are pretty nasty tho... weight gain, cog. probs., acne, hand tremors, toxicity and all, and i don't like the idea. How does anyone work?
