In February I started taking 150mg of wellbutrin daily. This dose was recently increased to 150mg twice daily. In the first few months of taking 150mg daily, I lost roughly 10-15lbs. Will the increased dose of 150mg twice daily result in even more weight loss?

Weight loss is a side effect with 28% of people taking Wellbutrin - loss of appetite, nausea, and vomiting -- all of which may contribute to weight loss. Often, these side effects go away with time. However, you should talk to your doc/pharmacist who prescribed the dose if these side effects do not go away. Also, since weight gain can be a symptom of depression, treating the depression can lead to weight loss.
If you are experiencing too much weight loss with Wellbutrin, be sure to talk to your doc/pharmacist, increase of dose will not double the weight loss.
