Budeprion XL Drug Information
Adults with depression or seasonal affective disorder (SAD) may benefit from a medication called Budeprion XL® (Wellbutrin XL®). This long-acting medicine improves the symptoms of these conditions by increasing the amount of norepinephrine and dopamine in the brain.
The medication comes in tablet form and is taken every morning. Taking it later in the day may increase your risk of insomnia. Because it usually takes four weeks (or longer) before the full effects of this product are felt, try not to be discouraged if you don't notice an immediate reduction in your symptoms.
This drug is not suitable for everyone, so it is important to discuss the prescribing information for Budeprion XL with your healthcare provider before beginning treatment. For instance, you may not be able to use this product if you are taking certain medications, have certain allergies, or are pregnant or breastfeeding.
