Similarly, it is asked, can Wellbutrin SR be taken once a day?
Bupropion SR is usually taken twice daily in the morning and mid-afternoon. The dose usually ranges from 100 mg twice daily up to 200 mg twice daily. Bupropion XL is usually taken once daily in the morning. Do not take more than your prescribed dose since higher doses may increase your risk of having a seizure.
how long does Wellbutrin SR last? The half-life of any medication is the amount of time it stays in your system when it hits half of its effectiveness. At between 33 to 37 hours, the half-life of Wellbutrin is exceptionally long for an antidepressant.
Accordingly, does Wellbutrin SR cause insomnia?
One antidepressant, Wellbutrin (bupropion), has been associated with insomnia. However, studies that have examined electrical activity of the brain in patients taking bupropion indicate the drug actually increases REM sleep time. Remeron (mirtazapine), an older, atypical antidepressant, is most likely to cause RLS.
Which is better Wellbutrin XL or SR?

Both Wellbutrin SR and XL come in affordable generic versions. The generic for Wellbutrin SR is bupropion SR, and the generic for Wellbutrin XL is bupropion XL.
