In respect to this, which is better Wellbutrin SR or XL?
Wellbutrin SR is the brand name for bupropion sustained-release tablets. Wellbutrin XL is absorbed in the body more slowly. Compared to immediate-release and sustained-release bupropion, the XL form releases the drug over a longer period of time. For this reason, Wellbutrin XL is taken as a once-daily tablet.
Also Know, does Wellbutrin SR cause weight loss? Both weight loss and weight gain have been reported in studies of weight changes while taking Wellbutrin. You may experience weight loss as a side effect of the medication for reasons that are not directly related to the drug.
Also, 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.
Can you switch from Wellbutrin SR to XL?
Switching Patients From WELLBUTRIN Tablets Or From WELLBUTRIN SR Sustained-Release Tablets. When switching patients from WELLBUTRIN Tablets to WELLBUTRIN XL or from WELLBUTRIN SR Sustained-Release Tablets to WELLBUTRIN XL, give the same total daily dose when possible.
