Wellbutrin REALLY helps with ADHD

35 posts in this topic

I think generic stuff is reasonably cheap. It is still working great, I am about to have to raise the dose though.. (I take 100 sr daily.. that's a really low dosage) I just hope taking it isn't preventing my dopamine receptors from repairing themselves.

Fellow Wellbutrin users not using adderall: do you have trouble tolerating caffine? I have found that I usually have to wait about an hour after I take Wellbutrin (I only take it in the a.m.) before coffee. If I have them too close together I get very very anxious.

I've been taking wellbutrin for years and I don't usually have a prob with caffeine... but I don't really drink too much coffee anyway - if I drink it after midday it gives me a shocking headache.

never had that issue either. I'd take it in the AM with highly caffeinated tea and double fist with a big water... lots of water always, never enough water for that stuff... but everyone's physiology is different, obv, so if you react that way, wait on the caffeine... are you taking extended release?

I was on Wellbutrin awhile back right after quitting adderall. It made me really anxious. I have anxiety anyway, and I do drink a lot of caffeine. I didn't tie the caffeine and Wellbutrin combination to the anxiety, but it definitely could exacerbate it.

Yes, I drink a lot of coffee. Doesn't really give me anxiety, just a slight energy boost.

No I take bupropion hcl

Not sure what that stands for but since its not SR I assume its not

You should be able to tell whether it's XR, IR or SR from the dosage. It is very rare to be prescribed IR, so the dosage usually goes like this:

300 MG XR (extended)

150 MG SR (sustained release) x 2 per day

Of course when you're first taking it you have to step up to that amount. I got super dizzy and a bit of virtigo when I first started, which is how I knew it was working I guess.
