What You Need To Know About Wellbutrin (Bupropion)

What is Wellbutrin (Bupropion) used for?

Wellbutrin (Bupropion) is a prescription medication that is mostly used to treat major depressive disorder and seasonal affective disorder (SAD). Additionally, it's prescribed off-label as a tool to help people stop smoking. It is also used to help treat adult ADHD as well.

There are multiple trade names for Wellbutrin (Bupropion.) The different trade names are Zyban, Budeprion, Forfivo, and Alpenzin. These names are mostly irrelevant for clinical purposes and used for marketing. The chemical structure is no different from name to name.

How Wellbutrin (Bupropion) works

Unlike many other antidepressants, Wellbutrin (Bupropion) does not directly affect serotonin levels. Instead, it affects the levels of dopamine and norepinephrine in the brain. This leads to higher levels of these natural brain chemicals, which can improve mood, increase energy levels, and enhance concentration.

Wellbutrin (Bupropion) is available in three formulations: Wellbutrin SR (sustained-release) and Wellbutrin XL (extended-release).

  • Wellbutrin (Bupropion) IR is an immediate-release version and is the original version of this drug and has the smallest doses. It releases into the body quickly and does not last very long.
  • Wellbutrin SR (Bupropion SR) is a sustained-release formulation of Bupropion. It is designed to release the medication gradually over a 12-hour period, helping maintain a more consistent level of the drug in the body throughout the day.

  • Wellbutrin XL (Bupropion XL) is an extended-release formulation of Wellbutrin (Bupropion). It is designed to release the medication over a 24-hour period, providing a once-daily dosing option.

The choice between Wellbutrin IR,  Wellbutrin (Bupropion) Wellbutrin SR, and Wellbutrin XL depends on factors such as dosing convenience, lifestyle preferences, and treatment goals. Healthcare providers can help patients determine the most appropriate formulation based on their specific needs and circumstances.

One of the key advantages of Wellbutrin (Bupropion) is that it is non-habit-forming, unlike some other antidepressants. This means it has a lower risk of dependence and withdrawal symptoms when stopping the medication.

How to Take Wellbutrin (Bupropion)

To ensure safe and effective use, it's essential to follow the instructions provided by your healthcare provider carefully.

Wellbutrin (Bupropion) is available in several different strengths for each formulation. The maximum daily dose is 450mg per day.

  • Wellbutrin (Bupropion) IR comes in two different tablets at 75mg and 100mg, dosed up to 3 times a day. How much a patient needs depends on their response to the medication and the condition being treated
  • Wellbutrin SR (Bupropion SR) is typically taken two times a day, with doses spaced approximately 12 hours apart. It is available in 100mg, 150mg, and 200mg tablets.
  • Wellbutrin XL (Bupropion XL) is taken once daily, usually in the morning. It is available in 150mg, 300mg, and 450mg tablets.
  • Never cut or split the SR or XL formulations of Wellbutrin (Bupropion). It can cause the level of the medication to rise too quickly in your bloodstream which can put you at risk of serious side effects.

Always consult with your healthcare provider before starting Wellbutrin (Bupropion). Your provider will evaluate your medical history, current medications, and symptoms to determine if a Bupropion prescription is right for you. They will also discuss the appropriate dosage and formulation based on your needs.
