From what I've read, there was a high incidence of seizures when the drug was first put out on the market, because the dosage amount was too high. Once that problem was fixed, (from what I've heard) the drug didn't cause seizures any more than any other Psycho drug.

Nah, the SR version is superior to the original instant release Wellbutrin. The SR version is safer than the original instant release. SR version is smoother, easier to take. It also has a lower incidence of seizures cause its sustained release.
