Started Wellbutrin XL a month ago. 100 for one week, 200 for second week and started to feel better than I have in years. Now I've hit bottom again and am scared this drug won't work like all the other ones don't. Doc put me up to 300. Did any of you not see improvement until you hit this high dose?
Hi, suz! It takes 4-6 weeks to feel the full benefits of an antidepressant/anxiolytic and 6-8 weeks to reach steady state therapeutic blood levels. 300mg is not a particularly high dose and is considered the target dose for most patients.
Try to be patient... you say you were starting to feel better than you have in years... this will probably continue at the recommended dose.
Best regards, Wildcat
