wellbutrin sr to wellbutrin HCL


Recommended Posts

Does anyone know if going from the sr to hcl will have different side effects.

And I can cut the quick release for smaller dosing?

I was on sr 150 once a day for 9 days - got really dizzy and had problems breathing. (I am worried that this is an allergic reaction to the pills)

Got script from DR today for 75 hcl want to cut in half and see how that goes.

Thanks

Robin

The quick release can be cut, the bupropion in Wellbutrin SR is also bonded to HCL (hydrochloride) according to the PI sheet, and here's what it said allergic reactions might look like:

Anaphylactoid/anaphylactic reactions characterized by symptoms such as pruritus, urticaria, angioedema, and dyspnea requiring medical treatment have been reported in clinical trials with bupropion. In addition, there have been rare spontaneous postmarketing reports of erythema multiforme, Stevens-Johnson syndrome, and anaphylactic shock associated with bupropion. A patient should stop taking WELLBUTRIN SR and consult a doctor if experiencing allergic or anaphylactoid/anaphylactic reactions (e.g., skin rash, pruritus, hives, chest pain, edema, and shortness of breath) during treatment.

Arthralgia, myalgia, and fever with rash and other symptoms suggestive of delayed hypersensitivity have been reported in association with bupropion. These symptoms may resemble serum sickness.

I still don't know what to do. If it is an allergic reaction the immediate release will do the same right? I really am stressing about this and it isn't making it better I didn't take a WB today and I am feeling upset and irritated and I actually yelled today over something stupid. SO, I really need to figure this out tonight and decided to go on or to try something else.
