Question: Wellbutrin - increase dosage after 2+ years?

 Minturn - Mon Feb 25, 2008 11:12 am

I have been on Wellbutrin for about 2 years now. Recently I have found that the symptoms I suffered from previously (moodiness, latent fury, lack of enjoyment in life) have made a slight return. Is it possible that I need to change druge, or increase the dosage? I am on 300mg XL.

User avatar Hello,
Medications of this type should be evaluated regularly because people do sometimes need dosage adjustments or even a change in the type of antidepressant they take. If you are not continuing to see your prescribing physician for follow-ups you definitely should do so now, particularly since you have seen a difference in your response.

Best wishes.
