Common Questions and Answers about Wellbutrin sr what does sr mean


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 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 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 f tn Budeprion SR and Bupropion SR are both approved generics for Wellbutrin SR. You should be able to switch to the Budeprion SR without incident.
Avatar f tn 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 wellbutrin sr a day..i want off the prozac..dr said when i run out of wellbutrin sr she will put me on the xl..i just wonder if anyone else takes wellbutrin sr three times a day..
Avatar n tn I am taking Wellbutrin SR 300Mg, 200 mg. Zoloft. and 50 mg. Trazodone daily, Do you think these doses are too high? Just started taking the Wellbutrin Sr 2 weeks ago, and feel so much better....
Avatar f tn Is anyone getting ringing in the ears from taking Generic Wellbutrin(Bupropion sr ) 150 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.

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 take 300mg of Wellbutrin SR and 5mg of Paxil in the morning, and 150mg of Wellbutrin SR in the evening. I am a 19 year old female who is healthy. A little over weight though. Any advice or comments? Please Help Me!!
Avatar n tn I had been taking Wellbutrin SR with Paxil for three and a half months (300mg of Wellbutrin SR + 5mg of Paxil in the morning, and 150mg of Wellbutrin SR 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).
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 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.
Avatar f tn m going back on Wellbutrin SR by my Psychiastrists advice. I never seemed to gain weight on Wellbutrin SR.
Avatar n tn i recently switched from celexa to wellbutrin sr 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.
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 Regular Wellbutrin, which is not sustained or slow-release, and Wellbutrin SR, the sustained/slow release type. Zyban and Wellbutrin SR are the same drug with different names. The research regarding bupropion and smoking cessation is all based on studies which involve the SR variety. So anyone using Wellbutrin instead of Zyban should use Wellbutrin SR - not plain old Wellbutrin, which is released immediately.
Avatar n tn or something like that) but I have asked if their are any complications...... NONE. I take 300mg of Wellbutrin SR and 5mg of Paxil in the morning, and 150mg of Wellbutrin SR in the evening. I am a 19 year old female who is healthy. A little over weight though. Any advice or comments? Please Help Me!!
Avatar n tn I have usually mixed Wellbutrin SR with an SSRI. The problem is that eventually all the SSRIs make me "zonked." My psychopharmacologist switched me to Effexor SR (3 x 37.5) plus 100-200mg Wellbutrin to control fatigue. I am having "zonked" effects now even on 2 x 37.5 SR of Effexor. Has anyone had good effects with 37.5 mg or even less of Effexor?
Avatar n tn 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.
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 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..
1680086 tn?1333695327 Did not sleep at all last night. Took morning meds at 10am. 150 Wellbutrin SR 30mg Adderall XR 600 Trileptal Took afternoon 150mg Wellbutrin SR at 1:40pm.
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 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 n tn What is the actual difference between Wellbutrin XL and Wellbutrin SR. Will both cause the same weight loss.
Avatar n tn Wellbutrin SR is an antidepressant that is usually prescribed in doses of 150 mg twice a day, which may be increased to a maximum dose of 200 mg twice a day. Because of the risk of seizures, the total daily dose of Wellbutrin SR should not exceed 400 mg. Celexa is a different type of antidepressant that is usually prescribed in starting doses of 20 mg daily. With the limited information provided, it is impossible for me to say which of the two medications is most appropriate for you.
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.
