I started taking Wellbutrin sr 150mg once a day for seasonal affective disorder. 7 days in started have to have terrible anxiety. Called MD and she changed it to XL. Please tell me there will be less side effects on this one..I'm tapering into it 150mg every other day to start... I take it very early in the morning so it wont affect sleep.Thank you
Well I am on the SR but I know they both deliver differently. My assumption is XL will probably be another. SR is formulated to cover 8-12hrs and obviously XL is 24.
I had this too but I added Pristiq and it has done wonders!! Good luck because Well has been one of the best for me.
robinpugs; The main difference is the way it releases the medication in your system, The xl is for 24 hours use and it is very common for either one of these to have the problems you were having for the first week or two then they go away with continued use So by now you should be past the worst part of starting this medication so you should try and take it each day now so you can get to the blood level your doctor wants you at. You might want to do this on the weekend so you don't have to worry about working if you get a few problems but you should pretty much be through that problem by now. Good luck to you Chuck1957
