Hello ChaCha64. If not prescribed along with specific directions, I suggest 3 times per day, every 8 hours (meaning 1 XL 150mg) Regards pledge

Three times a day is usually spaced out every 8 hours so say 7am, 3pm, 11pm.

Dr. Had me on 150 once a day. Then increased to 2 times a day (4/23). Now increasing 3 times a day. Kinda nervous increasing it. Would I see a dramatic effect from 2 times a day to 3 times a day?

But while increasing would I feel substantially different taking 3 rather 2? Is there a difference?

Hello ChaCha,
I'm speaking from the vantage point of a long time Wellbutrin/Buproprion user, but I am not a medical professional. I have never heard of XL being prescribed other than once per day because it stays in the system. I surely could be wrong here and I know one of our other regular group members will correct me if so. I believe that dose is the highest recommended for the XL. I don't mean to second guess your physican, but there must be some reason XL is being prescribed over SR. Get your very legitimate questions answered before you increase the dose. Please keep us posted.
Regards,
Frenchie.
