Re: Wellbutrin SR... can I cut up my pills? - No

Tom - Cutting open a Wellbutrin Sr tablet will destroy it's long acting effect. The 100mg dose of the SR version is a low dose. To go lower would require you to take lower doses of the regular Wellbutrin (not available in Canada). If you do cut it, the parameters of dosing will also change, necessitating a dosing interval change, as well. Also, receiving a precise dose (ie 25mg) is nearly impossible after cutting an SR tablet because you will not know which part is filler and which is actual drug once you dump the powder from inside the tablet.

Do talk to your doctor about this. Both of you need to be on the same page with regards to your treatment, including dosing of medications.

Hope this helps - Cam
