Depression Home > Wellbutrin Drug Information

If you are an adult with symptoms of depression, such as sleep changes or having little interest in things you used to enjoy, your healthcare provider may prescribe a medication called Wellbutrin® (bupropion hydrochloride). This drug comes in two strengths and is typically taken two to four times a day; it is sold in the form of a tablet. Weight loss, agitation, and dry mouth are some of the most commonly reported side effects.
Before starting Wellbutrin, review the drug's safety information with your healthcare provider. Also, make sure he or she is aware of all your current medications and any medical conditions you have, such as epilepsy, diabetes, or a brain tumor. This will help ensure your safety and reduce your risk of complications.
