I have been taking Bupropion XL 150 mg tablets and have backup if I run out of them with a Bupron SR 150 mg tablets. With XL my doctor prescribes 450 mg taken all at once in the morning. Can the Bupron SR be taken in the same dosage once in the morning? Simply, does SR and XL function the same way or at least close enough to be used the same way?
Sr dosing recommendation is twice a day.
The xl is extended release, the sr is not. so it is best to take a high dose of the sr split into twice a day, 225am 225pm for example.
They are both extended release I believe..the SR is a twice a day tablet as mentioned earlier..the XL is a once a day tablet
laura bupropion xl is taken once daily and the SR is a 12 hour pill you need to split the dose to twice daily and they both are extended release xl is 24 hour and sr is 12 hour lots of confushing even in the pharmacy and clinic's so know or NO you can't take the sr all at once in the am Tell your doctor just what you have and have them tell you exactly how to take you backup meds chuck1957
