Terra - The only real difference between the regular and SR versions are the drug delivery system between the two. The regular version is absorbed all at once, while the SR version is absorbed more slowly over time. This means that the regular version needs to be taken more often because it is excreted quicker, because it is absorbed quicker. This is in order to maintain adequate, therapeutic blood levels of the drug. You need to maintain an adequate blood level so that the drug is working to prevent a relapse of depressive symptoms.

I have no practical experience with the regular version of Wellbutrin because it is not marketed in Canada, so the above information is based on my experience with long-acting versions of any drug and from what I have read about Wellbutrin.

I hope this helps - Cam
