Avatar m tn I would call the nurse at your Dr.'s office and inquire. I take 150mg of it twice a day. I haven't had any side effects, but it hasn't worked for me yet either (after several weeks). Is yours working at all?
Avatar n tn I was taking a Wellbutrin SR 150mg generic (manufactured by Teva) twice a day for approximately 9 months with good results for anxiety/depression. Then I changed from a local drugstore chain to a mail order prescription service to save money.The mail order service sent me a generic that is maufactured by Sandoz(I went from a yellow pill to a purple one).
Avatar n tn I am also taking Wellbutrin SR 150mg twice a day and after 2 weeks of taking the medicine I noticed some itching. Like you I had no hives but would itch on my hands, feet, and upper chest and back. I thouhght it was from a new soap I was using. After calling my doctor I quit taking the medicine for a couple of days and the itching had stopped. I returned to taking the medicine and have had no problems since then except occasional itching on the tops of my feet.
Avatar n tn I was irratiable and depressed, so I had it changed to Wellbutrin SR 150 mg twice a day. This changed happened 6 days ago. I stopped taking the Lexapro and started taking the Wellbutrin- there was no tappering off. The Wellbutrin makes me feel to bad that I have been scared to take the second dose everyday- therefore I haven't. When I take the Wellbutrin I become very nervous and sick to my stomach. I feel almost drugged..
Avatar n tn My psych dr just prescribed wellbutrin xl twice a day for me bacause I felt like it wore off really bad around 4 int he afternoon. So I take it at 7 am and then at 3 pm to ward of that awful LOW feeling later. 150 mg each time. Total 300 mg for the 24 hrs. Hope this works.
Avatar n tn There are lower dose tabs though so once I did go to 75mg twice a day and then 75mg once a day and then 75mg every other day. I did each for about 4 days. I didn't have any problems the other times that I just stopped though.
Avatar n tn Wellbutrin XL is once a day and the Wellbutrin SR is twice a day. I was recently on the XL and I didn't loose any weight, I actually gained some. But thats just me, I have heard it works wonders for some people.
397118 tn?1219765850 Hi everyone, well I was on lexapro for 3 months no problems with it just that I gained weight 15 pds to be exact so my doctor per my request change my prescription to Wellbutrin directions 150mg twice a day well because I read that it may make you stay awake I started taking it on Sat.
Avatar f tn Thank for the information. I forgot to mention that the initial dose I started with was 100mg twice a day. The doctor did tell me the normal dose is 300mg a day so hopefully it will take me back to where I was when I first starting taking it. I am now into my third month. How long have you been on it.
Avatar n tn But according to the manufacturer and depending on how many milligrams you are taking you should take Wellbutrin SR and any generic form like Bupropion SR 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.
Avatar f tn thanks for the words im so scared to pop that wellbutri today im going to be on 150 mg twice a day and im on 10 mg ritalin once or twice a day.....plus xanx how did u do on the wellbutrin..did it help you did u have initial side effects?
Avatar n tn What is the deal with that?????????. Wondering if I should ask for a bit more of a dose of wellbutrin,,,, now I am taking 150mg of SR twice a day..... what do you all think?????????
Avatar f tn Followed up yet again with my doctor, he definetly says this is all related to depression and anxiety and put me on Wellbutrin SR 150 mg twice a day, and is going to add Buspar if in a month I don't feel better. My hubby and I are planning on trying to get pregnant soon, so that's why we aren't trying Xanax or anything like that. Anyways, I am on day 5 of the Wellbutrin, and the past two nights I have had some trouble sleeping.

Avatar n tn Even when I was on Prozac I was moody also, I am sensitive and cried easily but since I'm on Wellbutrin it's worse. Also one day I feel so good then the next I feel the world's coming to an end.
Avatar f tn today im dropping back to 2 and try that,i hust feel like since i was on 150 mg sr twice a day that 2 of the xl might work...im on my 3rd day of no prozac..i read on line where the 450 mg is not unusual..i may need that much with out the prozac..i dont know i just want my sexx liofe back..the hormones and thyroid problem was finally found and i believe thats whats been going on all these years,not depresssion.
370801 tn?1264408618 Tommorow I am going back to the doctor and I am trying to decided what to ask to do .. My idea was to take 100mg SR twice a day. But I'm afraid to get Wellbutrin over Bupropian because I feel too good on Bupropian so far. I know this sounds funny but almost too good. LIke for about 4-6 hours after taking the 100 mg I feel pretty euphoric and my sex drive is back. But by mid afternoon the following day or even noonish I'm down in the dumps.
Avatar f tn However, I do not know if I should see if my doc should increase my dose because i feel kind of better but still pretty down. I am currently taking 100mg of wellbutrin SR twice a day.
Avatar f tn The first prescription was generic budeprion 150mg SR, twice a day. I took those for about a week then switched over to name brand Wellbutrin XL 150 mg just ONCE a day. I am told that I am still getting the same dose of medication in a 24 hour period, but just can't get my head around the dosage numbers. I see it as 150 mg every 12 hours on the generics, thus adding up to 300 mg in a 24 hour period. With the name brand I see it as 150 mg per 24 hour period.
Avatar n tn Hello, I have been on Wellbutrin SR 200mg. twice a day, plus clonopin .5mg 3 times a day. About 9 months ago my insurance wouldn't cover the SR so my Doctor put me on WellbutrinXL 150mg 2 times a day. Just didn't work, tried taking both in morning a bit better, wore off. Have gotten back on Wellbutrin SR 200 mg again, plus the clonopin 3 times a day, my anxiety is getting worse. I raised the dose of clonopin to 11/2 twice a day plus 1 so a total of 4 a day, helps some.
Avatar n tn My new insurance plan does not cover the Wellbutrin XL, so I had to start taking the generic Bupropion SR a couple days ago. The new Rx is for 150 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.
Avatar n tn I started taking Wellbutrin SR (150mg) twice a day starting last Wednesday. I also have been taking Xanax before bed to help me sleep and it works like a dream. Since I've only been on the Wellbutrin for less than a week, I don't think it's positive effects have set in yet, but I have been a little dizzy here and there throughout the day. Problem is, I'm taking the NY bar exam tomorrow and the day after and I do not want to be dizzy for it.
Avatar n tn So--I went back to Effexor SR, 150 mg. instead of 75, once a day. This seemed to do a wonderful job until recently. Again the dizziness is back, the moodiness, all the yucky stuff. I would like to discontinue this med. to cleanse my system--or should I continue to try different drugs? As I am a high school teacher, 50 years old, taking HRT for five years now, and expecting my first grandchild, I used to enjoy life so much.
Avatar n tn I took Wellbutrin sr 150 twice a day for a month and did fine. When Dr gave me a new prescription he gave me Wellbutrin XL 300 once a day. I have noticed with the XL that I am staying hungry. Has this happened with anyone. I am taking it for depression and I have stopped smoking....
Avatar m tn I have been taking Wellbutrin SR 100mg twice a day for about 2 months now. I have not had hair falling out...but that's not a good side effect...and it is not listed as a side effect in any drug book. But there are always side effects they never tell you about. And different ppl react differently. How long have you been on the Wellbutrin before that started happening? I have been experiencing short term memory loss and having a hard time concentrating, can't stay focused?
1849967 tn?1319254344 5mg for about 6 months now, I take 1/2 a pill at bedtime. I have been taking Wellbutrin SR 100mg ER, twice a day for about 8 months. I want to go off of both and wanted to see what others have done. Thanks in advance for your help.
Avatar n tn I started taking 100 mg of wellbutrin twice a day since 8/08/07. I was taking cymbalta but had trouble getting to sleep and when I did I wanted to sleep 10 or more hrs. I just couldn't get moving. I didn't want to do anything at all and I had no sexual desire at all. I quit taking cymbalta about a week before starting wellbutrin. I am not as tired and level of desire isn't great but at least there is some.
Avatar m tn Can Cabergoline .25MGS twice weekly and Wellbutrin 100 MGS sr once daily be taken together? I know one is a dopamaine agonist and the other a dopamine reputake inhibitor. keep in mind both are low doses and I want to see if its safe before asking my doctor to prescribe it.
Avatar f tn I've been taking Wellbutrin 75 mgs in the morning for 8 months now to treat my depression, went up to 100 mgs SR for a couple of months but the anxiety was unbearable (I was diagnosed 5 years ago with anxiety/panic disorder and depression) so my p-doc brought me back to 75 mgs/day. I am also taking 0.5 mgs of Klonopin twice a day (morning and night) for anxiety. I am very sensitive to meds and can not tolerate any other ADs that I've tried these last 5 years.
Avatar f tn I am not a health nut, i am wanting to find out taking Wellbutrin SR 150mg. it is twice a day, i take for depression and hope to help on stop smoking and lossing weight and the Tramadol(not prescribed for me) 50mg taking for pain and hope weight loss. I do not even know if it is safe. buuuuuuuut anywaay. funny you are sunny66, I am mary66.......
