My dr put me on 150mg Wellbutrin once in the morning for a week then twice a day after that.I haven't started the twice a day even though it's been over a month since I've started the Wellbutrin. I take a lot of meds so it is hard to find time to take even one more. My question is when should I take the second dose? It is Wellbutrin SR so do I wait 12 hours in between or what?
Hi, lennongurl! I take 5 meds together in the morning and 7 at bedtime. Like kaismama says, as long as you take your doses at least 8hrs apart you should be fine.
I'm one of those OCD types that pretty much takes my meds the same time everyday, but I too sleep in or stay out later than usual. It's not a problem if you're not exactly on schedule.
Best wishes and Season's Greetings! WCV
Yes lennongurl you are best to try to make a normal same time of day dose but with wellbutrin unlike many antidepressants that one you start it in the morning if you don't one of the main sideeffects is it tends to stimulate you so not good to take at first at night when dr changes to twice daily that dose take it with you mid day dose that is around 8 to 12 hours from the first dose you can check with your doctor of pharmicist but i think you would have been told if you have any interactions,you want to make it as simple as possivlelike a 3 slot dose pack you fill am,mid,bed other wise you end up not taking them the way they are prescribed.Good luck..
