Has anyone had experience with wellbutrin
I've been on and off the medication. I heard it can work similar to phentermine. Has anyone taken two a day instead of one. I'm on 150 mg wondering if anyone experienced side effects of double dosing. Also it has not helped my depression or anxiety at this level and I no longer have health care.

I have bipolar disorder. I accidentally took my medicines twice one morning. I felt pretty euphoric for half of the day. It's unusual for me to feel like that. I took 400 mg lamotrigine and 300 mg bupropion SR.

The maximum dose that you can get of bupropion from a doctor is 200 mg SR. There is a 300 mg XL pill but it's the same thing as a 150 mg SR pill because XL dissolves even slower than the SR.

It can cause seizures if you take too much.

XL is an extended release that dissolves over a 24 hour period. SR is sustained release and dissolves over a 12 hour period. XL is given once daily and SR is twice daily. XL comes in 150, 300, and 450mg tablets in the US for generic. SR comes in 100, 150, and 200mg.

I'm on 300 mg XL and it doesn't give me any side effects. I don't notice any changes in my mood except being less emotional.

it has side effects..  double dosing can resort in hallucinations and seizures. theres a whole list of its side effects online just from taking regular dosage including vision problems which is what happened to me.

I'm saying, on my dose that my doctor prescribed I haven't experienced side effects. Not saying that other people won't experience side effects, it's on the label as saying it has an increased chance of giving people with ed's seizures.

I take Wellbutrin as well and have noticed changes in vision. I always attributed this to restriction. Could you explain what the vision problems were like?

Are your vision problems blurry vision and/or double vision?

Blurry vision can happen with Wellbutrin. Idk if it worsens with restriction, likely so.

Never tried it before, but I would like to. If you are interested, I recommend that you have a look at Canadian Pharmacy for some info about tips on such medicine. Maybe you will find something interesting to you there too, good luck with it :)

When I was on it I had issues doing my makeup. Because I always felt like my eye lids were too heavy. And I would constantly have to blink my eyes to adjust my vision. I always had to be Conscious of adjusting my vision. The way I tried to explain it to my mom was that my eyes were tired but I wasn’t . It’s how to explain it tbh . It became to much for me tho . I went off it

the chance of seizures goes up in those who purge/ have low electrolytes so be careful!

Im taking it now, 300mg. About a week in to taking these, I had one day where I was dizzy and shaking a lot, but it went away almost completely by the next day

Ive bounced back n forth between 150mg and 300mg for years. the 300 does help supress my appetite a little but it also increases my anxiety so so bad that I find myself eating out of comfort in order to calm the hell down. the 300 worked really well in the beginning to decrease my appetite and give me energy but I been on it 10 years now,... I think my brain chemistry has changed over the years... so now im back on 150mg so I don't like cry into ice cream from a panic attack.

I used to take 150mg once a day and I never experienced any negative side effects, worked great for my depression though. A little too great sometimes. I'm bipolar and my doctor had me take a combo of 2 medications wellbutrin and something else, I forget. The wellbutrin would sometimes accidentally push me over into mania, so he switched me to lithium. I also felt no change in my appetite either, which sucks because I hear for some it's a great appetite suppressant. I guess you have to be on a higher dosage for it to work like that :/

Do you think most people get the appetite loss only at a high dose? Wondering because I may be going on this soon.

wellbutrin is the only antidepressant that’s ever worked for me but it doesn’t affect my appetite whatsoever. i’m not hungrier or less hungry and i haven’t gained or lost weight

I take 450 mg of wellbutrin, plus another antidepressant and a mood stabilizer.  It doesn't really work for appetite suppressing for me though.
