I started on wellbutrin 2 months ago for anxiety and depression at 150mg xl. If you are sensitive to ADs i would start there. Even at 150mg it was a bit speedy at first. But i am very happy with 150mg. I dont have obsesive thoughts or extreme exhaustion anymore. The first few weeks may be rough! it didnt work for me untill week 6. Good Luck! -zach
I started on 150, 300 is a bit too much. Also, one of the first couple weeks side effect is agitation and anger, does NOT happen with everybody, but it lasted 3 weeks for me 2 different times trying so I quit before I could tell if it worked or not. It helped my friend a lot.
My Dr. started me on 150mg, but he recently increased me to 300mg. If your Dr. prescribed 300mg it's probably fine, but I'd just be hyper sensitive about any side effects. Just keep in touch with your doctor. Good luck with everything. cdswicky
I've been on generic welbutrin for several years, working up to 300 (started at 150) but I really like it, it works for me. I've been told that the name brand had less side affects than generic but I don't know if that's true.
