Carebear I was just about to start a post about Wellbutrin SR working better than the XL...but I'll just piggy back off your post :)

I'm on day 4 of the SR and despite the side effects that I'm experiencing I'm finding more appetite suppressant, being to have clarity of mind, beginning to have that feeling of well being, more motivation to do somethings that I haven't done in months, just to list a few pluses for the SR. The XL kept me spacey, I'm still spacey, but I can see a light at the end of the tunnel.

My pdoc only prescribed the 200mg. of the SR once a day. Right now I'm taking it first thing in the morning with my breakfast. I'm thinking about taking it at night because it makes me sleepy.

I have poor sinuses so I really can not comment about the smell.


> Hi, has anyone noticed a difference between Wellbutrin XL and the older versions? While I really like taking the XL only once a day, I find that it doesn't work as well for me. In particular, it doesn't have the same appetite-suppressing effect that the older versions had on me. I'm up to 450 mg now, and I'm back to the regular stuff-- 2 pills 3 x a day. It's a big pain to remember to take them, especially after the once a day pill. I thought about going back to the SR version, but the pills smell funny, like sulfur. Anyone have any suggestions?
