How to use Wellbutrin (bupropion)?
As I already told you, bupropion is only available as a tablet. Now it’s important that you swallow the whole tablet with a glass of water. Do not chew on it and do not crush it as the tablets are made in such a way that is slowly released the active medicine over a period of a few hours. And if you chew on a tablet, this effect will be gone. In addition, my advice would always be to take the tablet at fixed times, preferably in the morning if you need to take a tablet once a day, or in the morning and in the afternoon if you need to take a tablet twice every day. Prevent taking the tablet in the evening as doing so might increase to side effects your experience, and make sure there is at least eight hours between taking the tablet in the morning and in the afternoon.
What would be the correct dosage to take?
If you want to use bupropion to quit smoking, use the brand’s Wellbutrin and start using it while you’re still smoking, and then gradually reduce the number of cigarettes you smoke each and every day until you actually quitted smoking in the second week you’re using bupropion. This treatment can be combined with nicotine patches and I already made a video on those ones, and you can find it in the description. The starting dose is 150 milligrams once a day. And after four weeks, you can increase it to 150 milligrams twice a day. It’s important here that there is at least eight hours between both tablets. Treatment usually lasts seven to nine weeks after which the dose gradually is reduced. If you forget to take a tablet, you can just skip it and take the next tablet when you usually do so.
Unfortunately, Wellbutrin has some. I will read some of them out loud, but I will show all of them on the screen. Commonly, we see insomnia, a headache, nausea, vomiting, loss of appetite, belly pain. Commonly we see weight loss, fast beating heart, increased blood pressure, and rarely we see a low blood pressure, muscle twitching and cramps.
Fewer than 10% of patients will experience skin rash, sweating, ringing in the ears, shakiness, stomach pain, muscle pain or thought disturbances.
Unlike many antidepressants, bupropion does not commonly cause sexual side effects and may be selected as an alternative treatment when antidepressant-induced sexual side effects are problematic. Sexual side effects include such problems as difficulty achieving orgasm or ejaculatory delay.
The general risk of seizures from bupropion is quiet low. The risk of having a seizure increases with higher than recommended doses of bupropion. Seizures are more likely if you have a history of seizures or head injury, tumor in the brain, severe liver disease, an eating disorder, alcohol or drug dependence or taking other drugs that can also cause them.
There is a low risk of cardiovascular adverse events associated with stimulating agents, including bupropion. These risks increase when taking this medication if you have a heart problem, high blood pressure or if you’ve had a previous heart attack. A full cardiovascular health check will be needed before starting.
It’s very important that we stay safe when using medication. Therefore, my first advice would be to avoid driving the first week when you’re using bupropion. This is because you might experience some side effects like dizziness and confusion, which do not exactly make driving more safe. The same is true when you increase your dose. However, after using it one week, most people are used to the effects of bupropion and then it’s safe to drive. However, only do so if indeed you’re not experiencing those side effects. Secondly, my advice would also be to avoid using alcohol in combination would bupropion, as it might also increase the side effects you’re experiencing, and that’s not what we want.
What if you’re pregnant or you’re breastfeeding?
Then my advice would be to avoid bupropion. It’s unclear what the effects are on your baby, but there are signs that it might be harmful. Therefore, try to avoid it if you can, and always contact your doctor if you have any questions.
