Wellbutrin Dosage: You Must Take the Right Amount

 Wellbutrin dosage: Recommended Amounts 

wellbutrin dosage 100 mg.No single Wellbutrin dosage should ever exceed 150 mg. 

Wellbutrin Dosage: Adult

The Wellbutrin dosage for most people should probably start at about 200 mg per day of this antidepressant, taking 100 mg at two different times during the day.  After about three days at this dosage level, your physician may than increase the Wellbutrin dosage to 300 mg per day, taking 100 mg three times a day, with at least six hours in between doses.  This is the usual dosage level to get the antidepressant effect that your doctor is looking for.  The maximum recommended Wellbutrin dosage is 450 mg per day taken in doses of no more than 150 mg per dose. 

Wellbutrin SR: Dosage 

The usual starting Wellbutrin SR dosage is 150 mg in the morning.  After three days of taking this antidepressant and doing well, your physician may have you take another 150 mg at least eight hours after having taken the first one.  For some people it may take as long as four weeks before you feel the benefit and most people will take this antidepressant for at least several months.  The maximum recommended Wellbutrin SR dosage is 400 mg a day, taken in doses of 200 mg each. 

If you have a history of severe cirrhosis of the liver, your dosage should probably not be more than 75 mg once a day.  If you have less severe liver and kidney problems, your doctor may just reduce your dosage moderately. 

 

Wellbutrin SR Dosage: Children 

The safety and effectiveness of Wellbutrin and Wellbutrin SR in children under the ages of 18 years old has not been established. 

Wellbutrin SR Dosage: Older adults

Although senior adults are more sensitive to antidepressants and they seem to clear their systems much more slowly, older people seem to respond no differently to Wellbutrin or Wellbutrin SR than younger people. 

Wellbutrin and Wellbutrin SR overdosage: 

No antidepressant medication should ever be taken in excess of the recommended dosage and can have very serious consequences.  If you suspect an overdose of Wellbutrin or Wellbutrin SR you need to seek medical attention immediately.

Hallucinations, heart failure, loss of consciousness, rapid heartbeat, seizures 

Symptoms of Wellbutrin SR overdose may include:
