Wellbutrin, known as bupropion hydrochloride, is a type of antidepressant medication that is primarily used to treat major depressive disorder (MDD) or major depressive disorder with a seasonal pattern, previously known as seasonal affective disorder.  

The drug has been found to be effective in improving mood and feelings of well-being, potentially by restoring the balance of certain natural chemicals known as neurotransmitters in the brain. 

Uses and Dosage 

Prior to starting the use of bupropion, read the Patient Information Leaflet and Medication Guide provided by your pharmacist. In case of any queries, consult your doctor or pharmacist. 

Bupropion is to be taken orally, with or without food, three times a day as per the instructions of your physician. If you experience stomach upset, taking this medication with food may be considered.  

The dosage should be administered at intervals of at least 6 hours or as directed by your healthcare provider to minimize the risk of seizures. 

The manufacturer advises against crushing, cutting, or chewing the tablet before consumption. Nonetheless, many comparable medications (immediate-release tablets) can be crushed, cut, or chewed. Follow the guidance of your doctor regarding the administration of this medication. 

Do not alter the dosage or frequency of administration of the medication without consulting your physician. Exceeding the prescribed dose of bupropion may enhance the probability of experiencing seizures. 

The dosage is determined based on your medical condition and response to treatment. The dose may be gradually increased to limit side effects, such as insomnia, and minimize the risk of seizures. To prevent insomnia, avoid taking this medication too close to bedtime. Notify your doctor if insomnia becomes problematic.
