how effective is wellbutrin (bupropion) sr 100mg?

Depends.: That would depend on what the wellbutrin (bupropion) sr is prescribed to treat. Wellbutrin (bupropion) sustained release would generally be used to treat depression, however it is also used for smoking cessation (zyban) and off label for adhd and substance use disorders. We also add it to other antidepressants to try and reverse sexual dysfunction. 100 mgs daily would be the lowest dose of that form of the medication.

Depends: I agree with dr. Reynolds. That would be a rather low dose. It would be much more likely to beneficial for atypical depressive disorder versus typical depression.
