Depression &Bupropio: Some people begin to feel better quickly but others may take a month or more to notice any change. You should let your prescribing physician know if you don't feel any better, if you feel worse or if you have any suicidal ideation so your Dr. can adjust your medication. If you feel sedated take it at bedtime, conversely if you feel energized take it in the AM but consult your prescriber 1st
