Question Wellbutrin XL vs. SR

I am currently on 150mg of XL but I need to up my dose. My friend was
taking XL and her doc changed her to SR, which she said worked so much better. I was wondering if I should try that also, or are they really just the same? For those who have taken both, are there different side effects to the SR? Thanks

Hello jossib...I was put on wellbutrin xl back in November, 300 ml a day, taken in the afternoon. I had problems sleeping, and told my doc who then put me on sr 150 ml twice a day. Seemed to help me sleep better, as I could dictate what time I spaced out the dosages. With the xl(time released) you don't have as much control. I'm now down to 150 ml a day, and it's working out well. I don't think there was any different side effects between the two...first week or two of the xl was no fun.....dry mouth, constipation, sweats, ect. But when I switched over to the sl, I had no side effects. There all gone now....hope this helps answer some of your questions.....Best of luck.....Artichack

Re: Wellbutrin XL vs. SR

I have found the SR twice a day to be much more effective for my symptoms. Also, the XL interfered with my sleep.
