Talk to your doctor: Fatigue and oversleep is sometimes part of the symptom for depression. If you just start the wellbutrin (bupropion) it should take 4 to 6 weeks to improve the symptom. You could talk to your doctor add other medication to keep you alertness, such as Provigil or Nuvigil or other medication.
