... is not right for me. What's odd is that the first few days on XL felt great... but after that I grew increasingly depressed and anxious. My report says that I "need less than the normal dose" of Wellbutrin. What would that be? I was taking 150mg of XL. What kind of Wellbutrin do you take and at what dosage if XL is too much?
Hi Roger: I have taken Wellbutrin, both the SR and XL versions. I did not feel well on the XL versions at either 150mg or 300mg. - headaches, stomaches, irritability and agitation. Through the years I have done well on the 150mg wellbutrin SR (generic form, bupropion SR.) It is often given at twice a day doses of 150mg. I don't tolerate it at that dose after years of being off and on it. But I do well when I take the bupropion SR 150mg dose only once a day. XL is extended release over a 24hr period. SR is slow release over a 12hr period. Because of this, the XL extended release would interfere with my sleep pattern. But the SR slow release works well for me without giving me insomnia. Hope I explained this so that it can help in some way. Hope you feel better soon!
