How much does wellbutrin sr cost
Common Questions and Answers about How much does wellbutrin sr cost
I take both Effexor and wellbutrin. I take 450mg of wellbutrinsr 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.
Four-hundred mg is generally as high as most doctors will go (as per the PDR, I believe), but I've known people who were prescribed on as much as 450 mg.
Going higher than this recommended limit increases risk of seizures.
Your doctor also needs to assess your general medical condition, any other meds that you may be on, etc.
My personal experience is there's no difference between generic and brand-name, aside from cost (and co-pay).
After being on prozac since march and it killing my sex drive,my dr told me to stop it and start wellbutrinsr tommorow..plus 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 seizures...so i went to drug checker and put in all my meds ritalin,xanax and wellbutrin....it says the combo of wellbutrin and ritalin really increases the chance of seizures and so does the xanx..
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.
HI. I have a few questions. I have been taking WellbutrinSR 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).
I had been taking Wellbutrin SR with Paxil for three and a half months (300mg of WellbutrinSR + 5mg of Paxil in the morning, and 150mg of WellbutrinSR in the evening). I was prescribed 37.5 mg of Effexor to replace the Paxil.
9 months ago when the depression started, I was only taking Paxil. I was upto 40mg a day and I didn't feel that it was working as much as it should, plus many many side effects (mainly sexual and weight gain).
I was very recently prescribed Wellbutrin XL, after trying several medications that have not helped [including Wellbutrin SR]. When I saw my doctor, she simply said 'I'm putting you on Wellbutrin twice daily' and I assumed it would be the SR. But what I was given was XL, with the instructions to take it twice a day [morning and around noon]. My doctor's office is closed today, or I would have asked her. I did ask the pharmacist, and he said that yes, this is okay.
HI.I have been on prozac and wellbutrinsr for over a year..recently found out my problem it thyroid and hormones.Anyways im going off prozac and Im down to 10 mg and 150 mg wellbutrin sr 2 times a day.after a few weeks of cutting ftom 2 prozac i feel funny so i go back to 2,my dr wants me to instead of going back to 2 proxac to up my wellbutrin to 2 150 mg in am and 1 in pm..which makes 450 mg/she said it is abit over normal amount of wellbutrin sr..
The difference between WellbutrinSR 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.
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.
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.
My husband was taking Wellbutrinsr 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.
I have been taking WellbutrinSR 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.
I tend to drink very heavily on weekends and am wondering how the alcohol will effect me while taking wellbutrinsr. i take two doses of it a day equaling out to 300mg a day. How bad are the two (alcohol and bupropion) when put together? I smoke a pack a day too... what can happen to me?
but ever time i go about 2 weeks on just 10 mgs i feel funny in the head and kind of dizzy,so my dr said instead of going back to 20 mg of prozac like i had been to take 3 wellbutrinsr a day..i want off the prozac..dr said when i run out of wellbutrinsr she will put me on the xl..i just wonder if anyone else takes wellbutrin sr three times a day..
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....
Just wanted to elaborate on my previous post. You mention that you "can not have sex . . . its just impossible pretty much." Wellbutrin can increase sexual desire, but doesn't generally does NOT improve sexual function. Does that distinction make sense?
What could happen to me while taking Wellbutrin? I will be going to my doctor in April to do a follow up on me and would like as much info to ask her. I feel every time I went off the Prozac another episode of depressions comes along, will I always have to be on meds? How can I find that out are there any tests to find that out? I hope this isn't too long, but please can I have some advice?
Thank you for your time.
So i went back to mt sr 150 2x a day,but now it seems like my left breast hurts,i dont see how this could be related...and does the xl help the sex drive better than the sr,i hope someone might have some info for me,maybe someone has went thru this.
i recently switched from celexa to wellbutrinsr and my PCP told me to stop my celexa (without tapering down) and to start the wellbutrin sr that day. she told me that b/c they were in the "same class of antidepressents" i would be fine without tapering down.
i'm not feeling well and don't believe that celexa and wellbutrin are in "the same class". i also believe that she made a mistake by not having me taper down.
I know no one who does well on Wellbutrin, myself included. I was on Wellbutrin and Lexapro..I was a jabbering idiot..couldn't sleep, always had crazy nervous energy but dark circles under my eyes betrayed my alertness. My mom took Wellbutrin and Paxil for a year and then had her first manic episode that she had ever had in her life coming off of the drug.
However, my question is if anyone has lost weight on Wellbutrinsr 300mg, how long did it take to lose the weight and howmuch? What did it do to you, suppress your apetite or just made you lose weight? Please respond back if you can answer any of these questions, im in desperate need of some answers and hope ! ! Thank you.
h,i i have been taking 300 mg of wellbutrin for about 2 years but recently it does not seem to have been working. actually i take the generic bupropion sr could this make a difference? i hesitate to switch to another med for fear of weight gain and loss of sex drive, both of which would also lead to depression. i have been feeling really down. not that i was "super happy" but the "wellbutrin " did take the edge off.
