    Question Wellbutrin SR dosing

    Hi everyone. I have a question about Wellbutrin SR. In all the documentation it says to take a maximum dose of 400 mg - 200 mgs 2X a day. However, my Dr. prescribed the Wellbutrin SR 150mgs 3X a day to a maximum of 450mg. I know the max dose for the immediate is 450 mg 3X a day. Actually, the pharmacist originally would not fill the prescription because it exceeded the max dose. He was going to call my Dr. to verify. The next day, I ran out of my old prescription and called the pharmacy to see if they had called my Dr. yet. They hadn't and a different pharmacist said 450 was OK. I'm uneasy about asking my Dr. if he perhaps made a mistake. Has anyone else taken Wellbutrin SR 3X a day (450mg). I'm extremely tired and getting the shakes alot since I've been on this dose. I'd really appreciate any feedback at all.

    I was told not to take more then 300 a day. also no more then 150 at a time...I was told the higher the dose the greater your chance of having a seizure. Please call your doctor to make sure that is what he wanted. I would not worry about calling him.

    let me know what he says
    have a blessed day
