Went from 300 mg wellbutrin (bupropion) SR to 400mg Wellbutrin (bupropion) SR. Take 200mg in morning and 200mg at noon. Is that normal dosing. Been a little sick.

Yes wellbutrin (bupropion) dose: Wellbutrin (bupropion) comes in 3 forms: immediate release (IR), 12hour release (SR) and 24 hour (XL). There is a small risk of seizure if blood levels rise too high so guidelines suggest that IR doses shouldn't exceed 150mg spaced 6-8 hours apart; SR can be up to 200mg spaced 6-8 hours apart; XL can take 450mg once daily. Total daily doses above 450mg are generally not recommended. ...Read more

Can wellbutrin (bupropion) make you shaky? And have tremors? I am on the first week of it and started to have tremors this morning. Will this go away? 15mg XL daily

This is a common: Side efect with wellbutrin (bupropion). You may feel anxious ; have nausea initially as well. Here is an important question- are you drinking caffienated beverages? If so, that will markedly increase this type of side effect from wellbutrin (bupropion). I taper down my heavy coffee drinkers before even starting wellbutrin (bupropion). In the absence of caffiene issues, it will usually dissipate over days to several weeks. ...Read more

I take Zoloft a.M.Plus wellbutrin 150 in the morning and at night. I travel a lot and cannot always obtain wellbutrin. Friends have advised effexor (venlafaxine).?

Do not listen: To friends. Effexxor and wellbutrin work on different parts of the brain. You can not substitue one for the other. If you miss a dose of wellbutrin you will not have ill effects of withdrawal. If you missed medications on several days of either zoloft or Effexor (venlafaxine) you would. You should stick with the wellbutrin especially if it is working with you. There is a vacation override to get enough for trav. ...Read more

I have been on wellbutrin (bupropion) XL for 5days now because of panic attacks. This morning a severe headache woke me up. Should I still take it? (side effect)

I take 150 mg ER wellbutrin (bupropion) & 18 mg concerta every morning. How long after I take them is it safe for me to consume alcohol if I go to a bar one night?

I take 150 mg ER wellbutrin (bupropion) & 18 mg concerta every morning. How long after I take them is it safe for me to consume alcohol if I go to a bar one night?

Alcohol with meds?: Wellbutrin (bupropion) ER is in your system 24/7; Concerta taken in the morning wears off by end of the day. That said, alcohol interacts with both meds. Best to discuss with prescribing doctor who knows your complete history. I lean towards no alcohol due to interactions with med. See: http://pubs. Niaaa. Nih. Gov/publications/Medicine/medicine.
