Anyone take 150 mg of XL twice a day? I have been on it once a day for years and wanted to go up to 300mg but they prescribed me the 150 XL twice a day, which I thought only the SR could be taken twice a day. I questioned both the pharmacist and the doctor and they both said it's fine to take the XL twice a day. Any one have experience with this? Thanks.
Hello, yes, it is completely normal to increase the dosage on bupropion even if it's XL, in some ocassions even up to 450mg.
The only risk you face is increased side effects until your body gets used to it.
It's also worth noting that 300mg is the dosage at which people (very, very rarely) start experiencing seizures, so if you or someone in your family has a history of those you should be careful.
