Wellbutrin 75mg Anyone?
« on: March 24, 2013, 12:17:15 PM »
I have been on Wellbutrin 75mg once a day for a week now. My problems are depression and anxiety. I feel better, but the 75mg seems to wear off towards the end of the day. Im not sure why he put me on this low dose. I read the normal dose is 300.
Anyone else taking this and such a low dose?
I had no bad side effects except an upset stomach and some anxiety the first 2 days which passed

It is a starting dose to limit the common initial side-effects. It will probably be progressively increased to the therapeutic range. After only a week Wellbutrin will be having little if any positive impact on your depression and anxiety, although the placebo effect may be. Antidepressants typically take 3-12 weeks to kick-in, however, as Wellbutrin targets dopamine pathways some mood 'brightning' may begin earlier, sometimes within a few days.

I would experience a "come down" from the XL at about 10hrs after dosing, which we addressed by dosing twice a day, right after waking and then at about 2pm. I believe the generic and name brand XL release at totally different rates, and the generic I was on felt exactly the same as the IR to me... Perhaps a dose of 75-150mg twice per day would be a good settling point. I got relief from some persisting depression after about 4 weeks on only 150mg/ day.
