I also been doing some research on Wellbutrin,due to mild depression,and i think they start it of with 100 mg and slowly increase it, remember something about risk of seizures at higher doses. Check some sites for more accurate info.

Yes, that is correct - the normal way to start is at 75mg 1x daily. Then 75mg 2x daily, etc. I just wondered what the full dosage would be for both depression and ADHD. I took Wellbutrin several years ago for mild depression (300mg), and I cannot say that it had any positive effect on the ADHD.
